Kimberly Penro, Merrillville | "I don't think so. I don't think they're destroying the guns. I think they might continue to get guns off the streets, but it's going to continue gun sales and distribution."
Brandon Shearer, Hobart | "I think it's a sham 'cause there's all kinds of people who want to buy them. I'm pro guns, but what they give you in the buy-back is ridiculous. Who's to say they destroy them anyway?"
Jen Okamura, Valparaiso | "There are automatic and miltary guns that people shouldn't own. Yes, keep them off the streets."
Sean Egan, Miller | "Yes, there are way too many guns are on the streets. They have got to get rid of as many as they can."
Jim Mollen, Valparaiso | Yes, they should. Anything to get guns off the street keeps more people alive. Those that would use guns would need to find other ways to do what they do."
Keith Wilson, Merrillville | "Yes. It could definitely stop the violence. We have to look for our future generation. We need to do it as fast as we can."
