If the US government attempted to buyback guns from American citizens, the sheer number of guns in circulation (upwards of 300 million) combined with the devotion of most gun enthusiasts to their Second Amendment right and their general dissatisfaction with the current state of affairs would exacerbate rather than solve the problem. That having been said, even if by some miracle, the government successfully persuaded gun owners to hand over their guns that would hardly stop criminals from procuring firearms from the black market and using them for criminal activities, as they do currently regardless of it being illegal. The fact of the matter is that just like drugs, alcohol, and vehicles, firearms have no mind of their own, and require human input in order to be used and abused. With that in mind, it becomes quite clear that it isn’t the guns that we ought to control, but the people having access to and using these guns.
