Weapon Turn In Weekend

That time of year where the opportunistic souls bring in all sorts of damaged, outdated and non-functional firearms to Chicago churches. Then they take the Visa gift cards and head over to the local gun store to purchase ammunition and functional guns with taxpayer funds.

And this is OK why again?

Why do liberals buy into the lie of green energy – it causes twice the pollution then traditional energy sources?

Why do liberals buy junk guns?

Because it makes them feel good. It allows them to lie to themselves that they are making a difference in the world and that thereby they are superior to everyone else. It’s called a narcissistic personality disorder.

Because some of these guns manage to make their way back to the ghettos of Chicago, where they are vital instruments in the herd-thinning process.

And without this never ending phenomenon, the likes of Pfather Pfhilanthropist, Jesse Jackass, Al SharpAsAButterKnife and every other pathetic asshole "community activist" would be insignificant and dirt poor.

This necessary evil is parlayed over several angles and is appropriately filed under the "Job Security" column in the game of life. But only the conniving master manipulators know exactly how to extort every last drop of benefits from this man made tragedy.

At least all that gun turn in money isn't sitting in some politicians/crooks pocket and is helping the economy:)

I brought in a bunch bb guns and got visa cards before. As I was leaving the station the guy from kentucky brought up about 20 rusted Old rifles from I don't know when.

Rahm and McCarthy If you're reading this you're wasting taxpayer dollars with this stupid turn in. It simply does not work...

I have two rusted and corroded little 22's that are going to be turned in to make the streets safer. In turn I'll be using that money on a very nice steak dinner, au gratin potatoes, lobster bisque soup, scallop appetizers and strawberry cheesecake. Thanks Revs!!

Another worthless liberal idea that will somehow make the streets safer for citizens and the Police, but will actually not accomplish anything. Any banger with a working piece is NOT going to turn it in for $100.00.

You can always tell a liberal, you just can't tell them much.

Instead of Visa Cards why not have the turn in at a food deposit and let them pick out some food to take home. Fuck handing out cash. Another scam.

smoke and mirrors by cpd
use the laws we have and put these animals in jail
pass concealed carry for law abiding citizens
most criminals with guns now would not meet requirements for concealed
carry, concealed carry puts citizens on a level playing field with criminals and will reduce crime

Spot on with your comments.

More libtard idiocy. Illinois and Chicago politicians know damn well gun control is a pathetic failure; however, they don't care. Gun control is a means by which to control productive, law-abiding citizens. You'll never witness The Animal or other run-of-the-mill hoods lawfully obtaining firearms at a gun show, or at a sporting goods store, etc. Ghetto savages have alternative means of procuring firearms--stealing, black market; so forth. It's too bad Chicago can't cordon them all into "Hamsterdam"-style blocks (for those who've seen HBO's THE WIRE, permitting them the freedom to eradicate themselves permanently.

As for the "Rev'rends," "community activists," and the Alderfools: true, walking definitions of soulless scum.

The retired PO next door purchased 13 useless and rusted out revolvers in a Kentucky gun show for $70 and had his wife bring them in for the money.

He now has $1300 minus $70= $1230 profit. My favorite part of the story... He's buying and AR-15 with city money!!!!

Not a PO here but I've been hanging onto an old POS 20 GA single shot someone gave me because it wasn't worth fixing. I'm going straight from St Sabina's to Cabela's to buy $100 worth of .45 ammo. I intend to send the receipt to Fadder Snuffy too.

man - ya just gotta love the liberal mindset. It's not whether or not it does any good - it's the INTENTION that counts.

The Futility of Chicago's Gun Turn-Ins: Who is most likely to turn in a firearm for a $100 reward? Someone with 1) a cheap gun and 2) no criminal propensity.

During one of the first turn in's in the early nineties I turned in a junk Jennings 25. Got gift certificates for foot locker and got my kids some new gym shoes.

Progressives, aka Liberals, completely believe that their "intelligence" is beyond reproach and infallible.

I once, too, was a college student, a newly graduated recruit to the progressive ideals (like 20 years ago).

What messed me up was logic and a shit load of "questions" about what was fed to me. Questions like "well, being that we have the technology, how are we supposed to eliminate firearms? It's kind of like the a-bomb. Ain't no goin' back, my friends." My questions were not met with answers, but with disdain.

In all honesty, I'm probably a Libertarian, though, right now, the only party that I can really support is the "Cocktail Party."

I tried starting the "Common Sense Party", but people got mad about my "horse sense".

Side Note: I now have to be wary of my equitation activities because, gasp, I love dressage and partake in the "elite" horse industry, though it keeps us pretty broke. Somehow, this has become a sport that only "Republicans" do. But please google Bruce Springsteen, Todd Minikus and Pavarotti (the horse).

Pot. Kettle. Black. Shhh. Don't tell anybody.

"I worked as a Safety Officer two years ago at a Weapons Turn In and they had a lot of firearms that were in good working order and were of good value. Its a good program."

I've turned in SEVERAL replica firearms (Non-guns. Never been guns. Not possible to convert to firearms) and happily walked away with $100 gift cards that were used to buy new, working firearms & ammunition.

ONE safety officer at ONE location turned me away, telling me that it wasn't a real gun, so I walked out with the thing fully exposed. The copper started beefing at me, so I asked him what he was going to do; he'd just told me it wasn't real. He muttered something and I turned the replica in at another location.

It's a GREAT program-for people like me!

Uh, most of these folks can't legally go out and use that gift card to buy a gun or ammo.

Ugh sure they can. They don't run background checks to buy ammo at Walmart. Or gun shows or their local illegal gun dealer.

Ladies and Gentlemen,(non-Police),

PLEASE don't think that the rank and file Police Officers support this stupid waste of the taxpayers money. They live in Chicago. That's their tax money,too.

And for the coppers that support this BS, you have obviously never been the Police.

This ideological silliness has to stop.

Or, maybe EVERY OTHER STATE IN THE US is wrong and Illinois is right.

Oh for the love of God, are the leaders of this city really this stupid? I can't be around liberals for more than about five minutes. I have nothing to talk to them about, ever. And why are all of them so effing ugly? Has anyone ever seen a good looking liberal? I'm serious. And you can't count the Hollywood people since they've had so much surgery even they don't know what they really look like anymore. Stupid ass liberals.

Can someone please explain to me why Walmart sells ammo and yet guns are illegal. Am I missing something? I don't have a college education but I'm not an idiot.
