Sparking Dialogue or Sparking Joy: Competing Views on Gun “B

Postby NEWS FEED » Sun Aug 18, 2019 7:42 pm

Sparking Dialogue or Sparking Joy: Competing Views on Gun “Buyback” Initiatives, The Christian Science Monitor describes itself as “an independent international news organization” that wants to “help you to see news events as starting points for constructive conversations.” Its editorial board recently published an article, A seed for society’s safety: Gun buybacks, discussing why New Zealand’s “gun buyback” program could serve as a useful model on how the government can engage with gun owners in this country.
According to the piece, the “voluntary nature of gun buybacks – along with the incentive of being compensated – gives them a special place in the worldwide debate over gun regulations.”
In the case of the New Zealand program, it is neither a “buyback” nor voluntary. Apart from the quibble that the privately-owned guns have not been owned or sold by the government such that any later relinquishment is, in fact, a “buy back,” there’s nothing optional about the program, unless the decision between surrendering your property or facing hard jail time can be said to represent a real and honest choice., https://www.nraila.org/articles/2019081 ... nitiatives,
