    Another hoplophibic talking point used out of ignorance and willfull partisan blindness.
    There is no such thing as a 'gun show loophole'.

    So, unless you have something, some relevant knowledge and/or experience the make your opinion on gun control issues in Los Angeles valid...
    Does this mean you'll not comment on gun control from this point forward?

    The lack of evidence showing these programs to be effectual.

    Ya see, the police, those who have to actually deal with the inevitable outcome of the gunshow loophole and out-of-state guns flooding into densely populate areas... They support it. The big city police, mayors, etc, support stricter enforcement of gun regs.

    So, unless you have something, some relevant knowledge and/or experience the make your opinion on gun control issues in Los Angeles valid; unless you're a resident here in L.A. and really understand the nature of the problem in big (real) cities, I suggest you worry about gun control in your state and we'll continue to fingerprint everyone who buys ammo in California.
    The places with the strictest gun control laws are usually the same places with the highest rates of gun crime. Probably has something to do with the fact that individuals who are inclined to commit gun crimes don't typically abide by gun control laws.

    Gun crime is primarily the result of poverty and desperation, not lax gun control laws.

    LA is about to go bankrupt, and my tax money is going for this crap? This freaking city needs to go broke already. We need to change it NOW.

    What do you think of the government buying back copies of The Communist Manifesto? Are you fine with that?

    That's rather irrelevant considering it isnt going on and there are no plans for it.

    It's always interesting when LA does this. The last one was quite successful as well.

    LAPD takes in 1,700 weapons in gun buyback program - Los Angeles Times

    I'd be curious to see if there is any drop in violent or gun related crime post-buyback.
    I don't find this controversial given that it's voluntary as to whether or not you sell your gun.

    The principle is the same. Would you be fine if the government did it?

    It's MY MONEY going for this program. Maybe it should be a little more controversial for you.

    Also, it's impossible to know what crimes may have been prevented by these drives. I dont see anything wrong with them as long as they are voluntary.
    If the money comes from private contributors you have a point

    if they are tax dollars then they are a ridiculous waste of money
