US Gun Culture: Buyback Programs

US Gun Culture: Buyback Programs

The Sandyhook shooting tragedy was a sad new low in America's gun violence book of horrors, but one good thing did come out of it. It put gun control firmly on the map and President Obama wasted very little time to come up with new legislation which will hopefully put on end to these mass shootings. Part of the gun control measures are the so-called buyback programs. People hand in their weapons for a giftcard or cash in a no questions asked procedure. It is good to see people repsoning in numbers to these programs, but why on earth would someone need a missile launcher at home?
