certainly, gunners (like you) aren't in favour of any additional gun control measures - of course! Why would any responsible gun owner have a concern with a buyback program for all military-style assault rifles legally purchased in Canada... a program intended to offer fair market prices for owners; a program providing more resources for law enforcement to administer the program? Why would any responsible gun owner have a concern with the following?

Why would I be mad? I've been scapegoated for the actions of a bunch of gangsters and punks. I've been inconvenienced. I've got a piece of property that I'm no longer able to use and no financial compensation for it. And, I liked that rifle. I enjoyed it. I am disappointed that I won't have it anymore.  Imagine how you'd feel if someone took away your favorite Justin Trudeau body-pillow, that's about how I feel about having my rifle expropriated.

Fair market prices? I'll believe it when I have the cheque in my hand.  I know how much my particular rifle was retailing for before the ban, so I have an exact dollar figure in mind. I see no reason why I should take a penny less, and I don't see why any gun owners should take a financial loss because of the government's decision. As this drags on there should probably be interest charges.

Also, what buy-back program?  When is that happening?  Is it in the in-box right behind electoral reform, fighting wealth inequality, and a national drug plan?  It's been a year and as far as I can tell they've put this file on Bill Blair's desk and are watching to see if it moves under its own power. How hard can it be to set up a buy-back program? Have they just not found the right Liberal-connected firm to administer the program yet?
