Washington, D.C.- President Trump announced a bipartisan effort to put guns back in the hands of law-abiding citizens.

“Gun buyback programs are expensive! In order to pay for them, I’ve devised a great plan, truly great,” wrote the President on Twitter. “We are going to buyback guns for $150, then turn around and sell them for $250. It’s gonna be huge!”

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the move when reached for comment. Sanders explained, “The money made from the program will be used to help fund the wall on our Southern border,” when asked how the profit from the program would be allocated.

The plan, released in full today, outlines the process for buying a ‘sellback‘ gun. The guns will be sold in booths at gun shows around the country. Buyers are required to pay cash for the guns, and no record of the transaction will occur, under the plan.

The measure seems to have bipartisan support, with liberals championing provisions that allow for gun buyback events in liberal states. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said, “This is a great compromise. Those of us who want to take guns out of the hands of law-abiding people will have the opportunity to do so. We can make a safer, more gun-free New York, and those other lesser states can do what they want.”

Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) sponsored the bill in the Senate. He said he is happy to see the bill garner so much support. Senator Shelby released a statement today that read in part, “I’m thankful for my liberal colleagues who are prepared to take guns out of the hands of their constitutes and return them to the hands of patriots all over the country. We are putting guns where they belong, in the hands of God-fearing Americans. Finally, Americans with less disposable income will be able to protect their families.”

Both houses of Congress are expected to vote on the measure today. The bill could be on the President’s desk as early as tonight. President Trump plans to sign the bill immediately.
