    These reasons why it's pointless, from their own mouths..

    So I can have them pick up my working and scary looking pellet pistol and have $350 to go buy a new firearm? This seems like a no brainer.

    Pellet guns are not included.

    But you can buy a Tokarev for $200 and turn it in for $350.

    Point of the program is prevention,less guns available to be stolen is a good thing.Gun crime investigations,homicides,shootings,hold up,s expensive to conduct,well worth the expense to buy back these guns.Not pointless unless you live on some rural property and feel your immune from such crime.Kinda like
    your head is stuck in a maple syrup bucket attitude.

    So criminals can steal your guns then bring them in for a nice payout and no charges, perfect.

    Maybe you should actually watch the video and figure out what the officer said,its exactly the opposite to what your writing.He stated limited immunity for guns being handed in,which means if its a "crime gun" you would face charges.Nobody expects gang banger,s to hand in guns not even the Mayor which is why he states at the start of the video "why does anyone in Toronto need a hand gun" but you would need to again watch the video.

    I have 3 beaters that will never see the light of day and don't even know if they shoot or not. That's 3 that I was going to toss. Sounds like an easy 600 bucks to me.

    “Gun buy-backs continue to be popular for several reasons: They are relatively easy to conduct, they create the visible impression to the public that government is responsive to the problem, and their effectiveness seems, to the less-well informed, plausible,” said Mike Scott, a former police chief, criminal justice professor and director of the Center for Problem Oriented Policing. “They probably don’t do much harm even if they don’t do much good. The biggest potential drawback is if some people use the money obtained from selling an old gun to buy a new, more-lethal one.”

    Scott points to a 2013 analysis of studies done over the years on gun buy-back programs. It found that recovered firearms were “disproportionately old, broken, of low caliber and ammunition capacity, and differed from the firearms most frequently used in crime.”

    “Moreover, many of the individuals who turned in firearms were middle-aged gun owners and not older adolescents and young adults, who are at highest risk for involvement in criminal activity,” noted Boston based researchers Anthony Braga and Garen J. Wintemute
