Homemade Guns Flood Mexican Buyback Program

posted on April 16, 2015

The United States isn’t the only country where gun buybacks function as a misguided attempt to reduce the number of firearms on the streets. Now a program in Mexico is netting guns of questionable quality, while possibly serving as a money-making opportunity for those capable of throwing together crude firearms.

Reports indicate that all sorts of homemade guns have been turned in, from zip guns to .22 machine pistols to antique designs such as revolving rifles. One has to wonder how many of these strange artifacts were actually made to be shot, and how many were made strictly to be sold to authorities.
