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.
Sometimes it’s nice not to destroy the world for a change.
