Gun buy backs are just 'feel good programs' [Letter]

March 19, 2013

The vast majority of people who participate in gun buy back programs are like me. Law abiding people who are looking to unload worthless, unsafe firearms. Criminals do not turn in their illegally obtained and illegally possessed weapons. These are nothing more than feel good programs.

I turned in my worthless firearm that was unsafe to fire and received a $100 dollar bill. I used this $100 to purchase so called "high capacity" magazines that are currently in the process of being banned in this state. Once again, these types of programs don't work.

Thank you for the "free" money.
