Questioning “No Questions Asked” - Are Gun-Surrender Gimmicks Legal?
Submitted by: Bruce W. Krafft

"For decades we've heard about gun turn-ins – 'Gun Buy-Back' programs sponsored by churches, civic groups, and various other misinformed do-gooder organizations. The very name – buy-back – implies that guns belong not to individuals, but to the government, or at least to the people who don't like guns. The programs have the stated purpose of 'getting guns off the street,' which seems to give operators a pass from further scrutiny, even as they offer a tangible good such as a grocery store coupon or gift card in return for a gun, 'no questions asked,' much like any other fencing operation. Finally someone has forced the question: Are these programs legal?" ...

"During my June 12 interview on Gun Talk®, host Tom Gresham inquired if I had contacted the SPJ directly about what I had discovered concerning The Dispatch's advocacy journalism and money-laundering scheme (they failed to report where the money really came from, noting only that it was a grant from the John Jay College Center on Media, Crime and Justice). While I had not yet done so, Gresham's idea was an excellent one, and so a couple of weeks after my interview on Gun Talk®, I sent an inquiry to the SPJ." ...

"'Recently a neighbor asked my advice on purchasing a home-defense shotgun,' gun guru John Zent writes in americanrifleman.org. 'I described different options and then advised him to consider a short-barreled side-by-side like the Stoeger Double Defense [above] because loading and shooting it are foolproof. No effort is required to cycle an action, and the gun can’t jam between shots. Since precise aiming isn’t necessary, even the rawest beginning shooter has a fair chance of operating the gun effectively.' Huh? Loading a shotgun with shells with a bloodstream full of adrenalin is about as 'foolproof' as trying to pick-up Carolina Pampita Ardohain by asking her if Heaven’s lost an angel. ..." ...

Must guns stay at home?

"The Second Amendment’s 'right to keep and bear arms' is proving to be a right to keep a gun at home, but so far not a right to bear a loaded firearm in public."

"The Supreme Court breathed new life into the amendment when it struck down strict handgun bans in Washington and Chicago and spoke of the 'inherent right of self-defense.'"

"But to the dismay of gun rights advocates, judges in recent months have read those decisions narrowly and rejected claims from those who said they had a constitutional right to carry a loaded gun on their person or in their car. Instead, these judges from California to Maryland have said the 'core right' to a gun is limited to the home." ...

Thomas pointed to the emerging legal scholarship, some of it the product of liberal law professors ... arguing that the Second Amendment was intended to protect a personal right to own guns.
