Los Angeles will have a buyback program today. Via CBSLocal:
The city of L.A.’s annual gun buyback event will take place Wednesday in Downtown L.A. and Van Nuys, moved up several months in response to the school shooting in Newtown, Conn.
LAPD officials will be on hand at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and Van Nuys Masonic Temple from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to take back the firearms.
And talks of a national buyback program is underway.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said that she and other gun control advocates are considering a law that would create a program to purchase weapons from gun owners, a proposal that could be compulsory.
“We are also looking at a buy-back program,” Feinstein said today in a press conference. “Now, again, this is a work in progress so these are ideas in the development.”
