“I’ve been wondering recently – could a private citizen conduct a ‘gun buyback’? Think of the collectibles and rare items you’d be able to come up with just by offering $100 gift cards.” The answer, of course, (in most states) is…absolutely. Transactions for firearms between two willing individuals are perfectly legal. And with a few notable exceptions, no background checks are necessary. Of course, there’s always the chance that someone may take the opportunity to dump a gun that had been used in a crime (cops never check that when conducting their s0-called buybacks), so there’s always that risk. But as AG points out, think of the haul you could potentially make with a stack of $50 and $100 gift cards. When will you schedule your buyback?
