New York couldn’t afford it.

    The term “buyback” has great branding power due to its pithy two-syllable alliteration. Unfortunately it is a complete misnomer. The government cannot buy “back” something it never owned in the first place. A turn-in is a turn-in.

    That is assuming fair market value….

  3. Hartley Says:

    Confiscation by any other name…

    And yes, Bryan – once somebody does the math, “fair market value” will drop to something in the 2-digit range.

    Reminds me of the old eminent domain joke:

    .gov: We’re building a new highway, and your house is in the way. We’ll give you $20,000 for it.

    Homeowner: But it’s worth $200,000!

    .gov: Who would pay $200,000 for a house that’s got a highway running through the living room?

    Hey, who says they’ll pay one thin Dime? Betcha they’ll impose a “Disposal Fee” that will be $500 PER GUN MORE than Fair Market Value.

    Markie Marxist sez: “Of course it’s a ‘buyback’! All property is the property of the Marxist state! Ha! Ha!”

    They don’t have the money to “pay” for the guns. Where are they going to get the money to pay all the life insurance claims? They do have life insurance on “their” employees don’t they?

    And who is going to enforce it?
    Deputies, local cops?
    They’ll tell the feds to piss up a rope.

    Um, yeah, I have a lot of ammunition I’ll let them have for free, one round at a time.

    I live in upstate NY.
    The price of my firearms will be much too high.

    NY can afford it because they’re going to be using Obama money.
