When the very name for something is a falsehood, it’s classic “early warning.” How can anyone “buy back” that which they never owned or sold?
Gun buy-backs are also a rip-off. $50 or $100 or a gift certificate for a pair of shoes is a poor trade to a grieving widow turning in her late husband’s gun that might be worth thousands from a collector if she sold it to a legitimate gun shop, for example.
Not to mention that a “no questions asked” buyback, which is common, is the perfect dumping ground for violent criminals to dispose of murder weapons that could connect them to their crimes.
