SEATTLE — The debate over how to end gun violence is raging all over the country.
While Congress considers strengthening laws, cities in the Northwest are hosting gun buyback programs.
But, experts tell KIRO 7 Eyewitness News reporter Amy Clancy that the buybacks don't make our city streets any safer from gun crime.
What they only hint at is the political reason for the "buy back". The term itself is a twisted propaganda ploy. The guns never belonged to the government in the first place.
These turn-ins are political theater designed to delegitimize armed citizens and gun ownnership. Dean Weingarten
