Mandatory Gun Buybacks Are…
Unconstitutional. Plain and simple. It’s literally right in the text of the Bill of Rights. Mandatory gun buybacks are simply unconstitutional. We’ll even bold and italicize that part for you guys because we’re such cool dudes and dudettes.
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
It’s literally right there in the 4th Amendment. We know, we know, it’s been violated before and is still being violated, but it doesn’t change the fact that MANDATORY GUN BUYBACKS are the state exercising authoritarian-esque powers to force you to sell something to them you don’t want to sell them. It’s your property and you shouldn’t be forced to sell your property under duress or protest.
“WhAt AbOuT eMiNeNt DoMaIn?”
Yeah, again, just because it exists doesn’t make it right, proper or constitutional.
We know in the wake of mass shootings, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the emotions of the situation and it may on the surface to some, seem fair that firearms owners are at least getting paid for their guns instead of outright confiscation…but, these gun buybacks are atrocious in fairly compensating those who sell their guns. Last we saw, homies were getting like…$100-$150 VISA gift cards for their gats. Hi-Points aren’t even that cheap man, and you’re expecting people to turn in $1k< AR platforms for one c-note or maybe if you’re lucky 1.5 c- notes, not gonna happen.
We’ll tell you what will happen though, a lot of dudes and dudettes with some basic engineering skills will build $5 slamfire guns and turn them in making a wild profit.
Some people may find themselves thinking,
“Why would he tell them of our plan? They won’t accept our slamfire pieces anymore.”
Because, you simpletons, we don’t want them doing any gun buybacks at all and if they realize how stupid and flawed they are, maybe they’ll stop…ok that’s really doubtful, but we can hope.
