Guns are in the fabric of America
In response to “No buyback program or confiscation campaign will get rid of all assault style rifles,” I partially agree. Implementing a buy back program will only hurt law-abiding citizens since we'll be the ones handing in our guns while criminals, who don't follow the law, will still possess their guns.
In this country, we have more firearms than we do people, so it's only logical that guns aren't just going to disappear in an instant. However, to play devil's advocate, politicians should make their vocal talking points about banning handguns and not the “scary” looking assault rifles, considering that handguns are the primary cause of gun deaths each year.
However, I don't find it plausible to ban all guns or a certain gun type at most. Guns have been a part of this nation's history for far too long for them to go anywhere.
