Three lawmakers in GA have all sponsored a bill that would ban the use of any public funds for the purpose of gun buybacks in the state of GA.

The summary of the bill is as follows, “A BILL to be entitled an Act to amend Part 1 of Article 4 of Chapter 11 of Title 16 of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated, relating to general provisions regarding dangerous instrumentalities and practices, so as to provide that no public funds shall be expended by the state or any municipality, county, school district, or other political subdivision of the state for the purpose of a gun buy-back program; to provide for related matters; to repeal conflicting laws; and for other purposes.

The bill is currently in committee and has three co-sponsors.

Gun buybacks have been shown to be highly ineffective lately with many people bringing in antique, non working, or replica firearms to these events.
