    The only guns that get turned in for buyback programs are those that are junk and only worth the amount they get.

    “The guns typically surrendered in gun buy-backs are those that are least likely to be used in criminal activities,” the report says. “Old, malfunctioning guns whose resale value is less than the reward offered in buy-back programs or guns owned by individuals who derive little value from the possession of guns (e.g. those who have inherited guns).”

    (Not saying what I do or do not agree with, just what I think the reason in the current spike in sales is.)
    Right. Stockpiling against those who have no guns. I don't find that healthy or Christian.

    Or more like stockpiling against the criminals who already have guns.

A much more light hearted example would be When Twinkies were no longer going to be made, people who had not eaten them in years went out and bought them in bulk. I personally know several people IRL who have never owned a gun in their life, have gone out and bought a gun in the last few weeks. It was not because of the NRA, but because they were afraid they would loose the ability to buy one in the future.
    your personal experience may be true but is belied by the article that sapphire sunset posted stating that it is overwhelmingly gun owners getting more guns. Of course there are terrified and uneducated outliers.

    Right, like to protect you against the recent spate of crimes by those who have legally purchased their weapons. Nancy's stockpile helped her out a lot, huh? Or wait, did it help murder babies? Explain it to me.

    Sorry your theory about uneducated gun owners is incorrect.

    Who are all these gun owners? Are they the uneducated poor, left behind? It turns out they have the same level of formal education as nongun owners, on average. Furthermore, they earn 32% more per year than nonowners. Americans with guns are neither a small nor downtrodden group.

    Nor are they “bitter.” In 2006, 36% of gun owners said they were “very happy,” while 9% were “not too happy.” Meanwhile, only 30% of people without guns were very happy, and 16% were not too happy.
    Gun Owners Not Uneducated, Poor, or Bitter

    Since she was murdered sleeping in her bed no they didn't help her much, but they sure could have helped if that superintendent that tried to stop him from coming in the door had one.

    The idea that gun owners are uneducated or illiterate is completely judgmental and false.
    It is also a false assertion that people that are out buying guns are "stockpiling' My dad went a got 2 new guns (hunting rifles) that he has been wanting to buy. His fear is that the prices will go up when bans or new laws are put into place, he is not planning on stockpiling to use on others with no guns
