Democrats Ask for $360 Million of Your Money to Buy Your Guns!
Rep. Donald Payne, Jr. (D-NJ) has re-introduced a national gun buyback program called the Safe Neighborhoods Gun Buyback Act and he's got 22 co-sponsors, all Democrat.
"Although no one piece of legislation will eliminate all gun violence, this bill will get guns off the streets and keep them out of the hands of people who wish to cause harm," Payne said. "If we can get one gun off the street, if we can save one life, then we have to take action."
Now, stop and think about what this guy just said if you will. First, he's right not one piece, or ten thousand pieces of words will eliminate gun violence. We know what eliminates gun violence and that is government stops restricting gun ownership. In fact, mandatory gun ownership in Kennesaw, Georgia virtually eliminated all gun violence, except in gun free zones.
Second, Payne said that this bill will "get guns off the streets and keep them out of the hands of people who wish to cause harm." How exactly does that work? Won't the people who are expected to turn their guns in be law abiding citizens? Surely Payne is not advocating that criminals turn in their guns, is he? Second, are these law abiding citizens actually seeking to do anyone harm? Probably not, but then Payne seems unable to distinguishing fact from fantasy in his ridiculous and unconstitutional bill.
