Gov't memo: Assault weapon ban meaningless without confiscation

From a National Institute of Justice memo citing strategies to combat "gun violence":
Since assault weapons are not a major contributor to US gun homicide and the existing stock of guns is large, an assault weapon ban is unlikely to have an impact on gun violence. If coupled with a gun buyback and no exemptions then it could be effective. 
Got that? Mandatory buy-backs. No exceptions.

Registration would be a big step in that direction.
