ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Will local taxpayers be promoting the destruction of criminal evidence during a June 14 “anonymous” gun buyback in Santa Barbara, California? What will prevent gang members from Los Angeles from gathering weapons used in violent crimes and delivering them to Santa Barbara? If law enforcement is trying to solve a murder, how can forensic investigators link a bullet to a gun that has been “anonymously” purchased and then destroyed? Finally, do buyback programs make the streets safer — or more dangerous?
