So what you are saying is that people are going to pay taxes, that will then be used to buy thier guns back from them. But because it's the government, probably not at the price that they are worth on the open market. Which means either one of two things, this is a ploy to set a precedent and establish an infrastructure for a mandatory buyback, where the government will force people to turn in thier property and give them thier own money back so they don't feel as bad. Or it stays voluntary and because people would get better prices on the free market, our taxes would simply increase to fill up a pool of money that will go largely unused, and most likely be misused. This whole thing sounds like stealing with extra steps.
