"Gun Buy Back" Rip Off?

  • The total number of weapons collected citywide was 4,050, including 55 assault weapons, 1,335 handguns, and 600 replicas.

  • At Uptown Baptist Church, one of two North Side collection points, area residents had dumped 200 rifles by 12:30 p.m. Saturday, including a machine gun that had been in a fire. Another man presented a box of replica handguns, each worth $10.

    Virtually all of the guns turned in Saturday at Uptown aren't the kind likely to be used to commit crimes.

    “There’s not a functional gun in the lot,” said [...] a 23rd District CAPS officer.

So 200-plus guns at an average of $75 per is $15,000 wasted for non-functional weapons that never would have hurt anyone unless used as a blunt instrument. But they are useful props in Shortshanks' ongoing war against the US Constitution.

Hey, keep quiet. Some of us actually use this bullshit program to upgrade our arsenals.

I've seen this in Iraq too. The insurgents would turn in bullshit and use the money the U.S. gave them to purchase weapons to use against us.

Dumbocrats are SOOO stupid.

I wish I had some junk guns that I could sell to shortshanks !

Buy backs accomplish nothing more than headlines for daley's agenda. The city is no safer now than it was before the buy back.

An officer I know was working at one of the turn in sites. She told me one little projectile shooting gun- turned in had just been bought at a nearby Walgreens for $3.00 (she saw the package) and the guy was given a $10.00 gift card. What a scam.

Didn't Dillinger carve a piece of soap to resemble a gun?

Would I have gotten $100 for my $25 J.C. Higgins shotgun if I would have sawed off the barrel?

Just askin'

I worked the turn-in last year and I was told that Shore brings in all their non operational weapons, and they get paid. But you remember last year's turn in had a lower amount offered for handguns. So Shore had two years to save up. I doubt that the CAPS people at 35th would ever admit to this in public. Smoke and mirrors, ohh I did get an honorable mention for my trouble.

since in Chicago we're gunshy about Constitutional Rights (how embarrasing for me - my out of state relatives constantly give me crap and rightfully so)....How about Cash for Dumb Speechs?

turn in your copy of 0bama's next treatise on race, or Rev Jackson (he of the Monochrome Coalition)'s next magnus opus for a $50 gift card

"Didn't Dillinger carve a piece of soap to resemble a gun?"

But Dillinger was a Hoosier and those people are already armed to the teeth. A gun turn in at an elementary school in Indianapolis will result in far more guns than this--and their guns will work.

Except the Hoosiers don't kill each other like our fine citizens do.
