As most of you know (or should know), the Obama administration tasked the National Institute of Justice with developing firearm prevention strategies. Among these strategies is the confiscation of your firearms, cleverly referred to as "mandatory buybacks" or "buybacks with no exemptions".
Ironically, the government's own study clearly states that a "complete elimination of assault weapons would not have a large impact on gun homicides" as they only account for 2% of crime. So, its ineffective policy yet politicians continue to beat this drum.
This is one among many falsehoods put forth by the anti-American, anti-2nd Amendment politicians that are discredited by their own study.
Here is the study in its entirety:
The government study specifically references the Australian buyback of 1997 as being broad and effective. The only thing it was effective in doing was disarming the law abiding citizenry rendering them defenseless to the criminal, predatory elements of their society.
Watch this report for raw facts on Australian crime statistics before and after their mandatory buyback.
This should serve as a warning for all law abiding, patriotic Americans.
