Gun buy back programs are notoriously ineffective and counter to public safety. There’s the issue of “dirty” guns being turned in anonymously, which means more gun crimes go unsolved. Also, a lot of times gun enthusiasts gather up trash guns and trade them in for cash, so they can buy better guns. Awesome loophole/come up.
But here’s a gentleman who’s taking this loophole to the extreme. Mark Serbu is a gun designer and builder in Florida who came up with a design for a four piece gun that can be made with the sole purpose of turning it in at a buy back program. And when programs are paying upwards of $250 for shitty guns, why not? If you look at the video, though, you’ll see that this “homemade” gun is really only homemade if you have a full gunsmith shop in your home. Sadly, I do not. So no homemade guns for me…yet.
