    I love how they call it a scheme.

    Nice to see guns attained in "buybacks" end up in the hands of criminals rather than in the homes and hands of honest citizens. That's the ultimate goal anyway right? Then you'll HAVE to rely on the police. Keep your eyes towards the ground and shuffle into re-education camp!

    Where do they think the "buyback" weapons go?

    Everyone knows that the cherries go to the cops, the trash is melted for cameras, the rest gets sold back to the criminals per gun, used as throws, and some get sold to dealers outside a certain radius.

    El Tejon, owner of many "buy back" guns from NYC, New Orleans and LA.:)

    It must have been absolute hell driving on New South Wales streets before the gun buyback plan. Driving over 650,000 guns couldn't have made for a smooth ride.

    I can understand why the government wanted to buy back the guns of owners who were throwing them carelessly into the streets where they would impede the progress of motorists and pedestrians. Elderly people probably had to be especially careful when crossing the streets so as not to trip over those guns. Gun owners need to take better care of their guns.

    But what I don't understand is why they're concerned about the $600 million dollars. Since the government was buying the guns back, the government must have sold the guns originally. So of course these transactions had to have been refunds of the money paid to the government by the purchasers.

    I guess I also didn't know that the Australian government was in the business of retailing guns to consumers, but it's not that bad an idea. If you can't trust the government to sell you a good gun at a fair price, who can you trust?

    IIRC at least one of the firearms used by Martin Bryant (who caused Aussie gun control:cuss: ) had been previously surrendered to police by some one else.
    Tasmania also had the strictest gun controls at the time
