    I was watching Q13 fox this morning and a possible gun buyback was briefly mentioned for the Seattle area. From what I know, this will most likely be done in a public place. Is it alright if we offer higher than what they would be getting for their rifles?

    The way I see it, it would be similar to a FTF transaction.

    It is done in Portland at the buy backs each year.

    Dog and pony shows for the press! In my humble opinion.

    Since, in most cases, the police dept (or gov't agency) never owned them in the first place how can they "buy them back"?

    just sit down the street with a sign saying you'll give 25$ more than they will......or if they are giving gift cards, you offer cash..

    I've always wondered if this would work. Has anyone ever tried/done this? What can the "law" do about it?

    Only concern would be that some of what you buy might be stolen. Other than that I like the idea.

    The buy back will be a great way to get rid of your POS guns/rifle that's not worth awhile to fix.

    Haha, I have always wanted to set up a little stand at one of those saying "GUN BUY BACK TO SAVE LIVES" Little do they know it would go to the home protection department :)

    That could be the case with buying any used gun. Ask to see some ID and get a bill of sale like any private firearm transaction. If they are not willing to do that then I would pass.

    Still not a "buy back" program no matter how they spin the notice! Not possible in most cases as I stated earlier.

    Gun ‘buybacks’ may be deceptive political theater

    One day after conservative and gun rights groups announced a national “Gun Appreciation Day” on Jan. 19 – two days before Barack Obama’s second inauguration, timed perhaps not so coincidentally with Martin Luther King Day – several organizations in Seattle and King County are announcing a gun buyback program that may be more flash than substance.
