35. Good point. Guess buybacks are out

Another problem I've seen with gun buyback programs is that far too often they don't discriminate in what they pay for which weapons, because many of the employees aren't trained in firearms. A rusty .22LR that probably won't even fire anymore can get the same payout as a brand-new Glock. I've even heard of realistic-looking BB guns being accepted by mistake, and guys clearing out pawn shops for cheap old guns to turn a profit at buybacks.
