3. That will get a lot of cheap, rusted-out, nonfunctioning guns from people.

Military/assault rifles are already illegal so there won't be many of those. If the writer means civilian legal AR15s, then they still won't get many since the used price right now is around $1000. Why more for long guns than handguns, which are generally preferred by criminals? And why pay anything for a BB gun?

Also, suppose someone steals a gun and then turns it in for $100. What recourse does the legal owner have?
