“Them: ‘Mandatory buy back’ Me: How can you buy back something that never belonged to you?”

A government “gun buyback program” is a misnomer, since the government is buying the guns of private citizens and not “buying them back.”

Wikipedia: Gun buyback program
A gun buyback program is one instituted to purchase privately owned firearms. The purported goal of such programs is to reduce the number of guns sold illegally. A buyback program would provide a process whereby civilians can sell their privately owned firearms to the government without risk of prosecution. In most cases, the agents purchasing the guns are local police when purchasing firearms on behalf of the government.  The term is in most cases a misnomer since the purchasers are rarely those who initially sold the guns, so guns are bought, not bought back. A gun buyback program can either be voluntary, or it can be mandatory with penalties for failure to sell.

How can the government buy back my guns?
1) they never bought them in the first place
2) the federal government can’t pass a background check, they have thousands of felonies in their name
