Since the Sandy Hook school shooting on December 16th, the gun ban lobby has been almost giddy with the prospect of getting everything they want on their long wish list, especially a renewal of the Clinton Gun Ban. But in some places, the talk is of confiscation or forced compensated confiscation (so-called buy backs).
This report by a New York CBS affiliate notes that New York Police are actually considering how they would go about collecting all those "assault rifles" in the event the ban is renewed.
The last time the ban was enacted, existing firearms were grandfathered. Would the new darling of the media, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, go along with a ban that also called for confiscation?
