    If it was voluntary and the seller set the price, it would be a buyback of sorts. Not voluntary and enforced at the barrel of a gun by LE for not complying = confiscation

    They just don't have the balls or the decency to call it what is, per usual.

    Remember, the end justifies the means to them, so how it gets done is irrelevant to them.

    Here's another way to look at this. In the Leftist/Socialist/Communist mentality, the concept of private property is something that doesn't compute. Their bold and brave new future involves removing private ownership. Once they take power, they provide some kind of compensation for something they claim you never owned. It was communal property to begin with, and now they're just transferring it to the collective.

    It's becoming a fashionable position to take again among politicians on the left. IMO that's at least partially due to the amount of money Bloomberg has personally poured into the push for more gun control.

    Ironically, that means every politician claiming pols who vote for gun rights have been bought by the NRA has themselves been bought and paid for by the likes of Michael Bloomberg.

    I'd bet if the money went away, nearly overnight all of the clamor for gun bans/buybacks/confiscation would do the same.

    Seems to me that a mandatory gun buy back is pretty much raping someone, but throwing them some 20s and calling it a ‘date night’.

    Nope, the value is incalculable when it comes to a natural civil right.

    This all sounds like Jim Crow laws to me. I can't believe that those racists are trying to implement new Jim Crow laws.

    The party of the Klan strikes again.
    In no way do I make any money from anyone related to the firarms industry.

    It’s not perfectly clear, but there is a political a-side:b-side cartoon of ‘buy back’ for the 2A and the 14A just to show how crazy the concept of a buy back on civil rights is. All the more crazy is the rights that younger people are willing to surrender with no compensation...
