Here are the results of the 1998 buyback, which echo Glenn's post.

"Automatic" firearms, which include semiautos, accounted for 0.1% of guns turned in. Other "centerfire" guns accounted for 3.2%. That includes revolvers and bolt-action rifles. 47.5% of the total was comprised of rimfires.

Yes, people turned in guns, much like they do in buybacks here. But they're not turning in the guns that prompted these initiatives.
