Suburban Gun Turn-In

  • Firearms will be exchanged for $100 cash if the weapon and participant meet the program requirements.

    All types of firearms will be accepted, but they must be unloaded and transported in a car trunk or inaccessible area of a van or pickup truck, police said. Participants must enter the turn-in site without the firearm, and police will accompany them back to the vehicle to retrieve it.

    [...] To get $100, the firearm must be functional. Pellet and BB guns will be accepted, but no money will be given, the release said.

    Only residents of towns belonging to the [South Suburban Association of Chiefs of Police] are eligible to take part. Those unsure whether their town is a member should call their local police.
Police have to retrieve the weapons from your trunk? Where's the sense of adventure?

No money for BB guns and air rifles? Now there's no motive to profit.

Fully functional firearms only? What are those guys from southern Illinois going to do to fund their youth gun safety programs now?

And why would anyone turn in a fully functional firearms anyway? There's the potential for years of fun, safe shooting sports along with the ability to defend yourself in the event a criminal comes knocking at your door.

They should re-wrap them and hand them out for Christmas. Give 'em to "the children" that would like to have a gun but can't afford one. Ya know, the underprivileged youth!

Sounds like the south suburban chiefs of police or whoever sponsored this actually THOUGHT about their program before setting it in motion. Amazing. The brain trust that is the CPD nonleadership should take a lesson here.

Our Tax Dollah's at work. Anyone seen the triple Jay?

via BlackAmericaWeb, ....

"...Speculation over Jackson’s health, the investigation involving alleged campaign finance misconduct and his whereabouts has reached a fever pitch in Chicago and even Jackson’s most steadfast admirers are demanding that the clandestine congressman explain his mysterious five-month absence from Capitol Hill.

With his political career spiraling out of control, Jackson, 47, skipped his session in Congress this week and many of his colleagues say they never expect to see Jackson serving as a congressman on Capitol Hill again.

And there is also deep-rooted anger.

"To slap us in the face now, you just lied to us," Chicago Alderwoman Carrie Austin told reporters Thursday. "You just lied to us. I feel so betrayed."

Austin's fury toward Jackson comes as a Fox television affiliate in Chicago reported that Jackson is willing to give up his congressional seat if he also receives a disability package when he steps down. The disability allocation might be his only source of income, according to the report...."

Oh Rly??

Fever pitch? Betrayed? Angry?

We're suppose to feel for JJJ because if he doesn't get his disability check from congress he will not have any income. Gimme a break.

Go out and find a job like the rest of us. The mayor will match you up with a community college for your retraining for a job that America needs.

You lied, you could you slap us in the face like this..(how am I doing so far, one more?) YOU LIED...

Fever pitch tho? Never see congress again tho? Ha, funny way of showing it with a landslide victory from his constituents. How angry could they be?

The drama, now, after the election. I feel so betrayed don't you.

Isn't it time for Illinois to do a politician turn-in program?

Here's a gun issue for you. In September, I again requalified for IROCC. Four days later, my new card comes in the mail. Realizing that my FOID card expires in December, I mailed in my renewal form and check in early October. Six weeks later, my FOID is still MIA. WTF? So in a couple of weeks, I will be authorized by the G to carry a concealed weapon nationally that I will not have legal authorization to own in the People's Republic of Ill-noise. Again, WTF?

Name calling is fun. It appears to me that most anti-gun types, including gun turn-in folks, are delusional, paranoid, clueless, and ineffective fighters of violent crime.

Here's one: Illinois' UUW and AGG UUW laws are mostly unconstitutional.

Don't crap out on the FOID people just yet. They are so backed up that it is taking 6-8 weeks to receive the card. Can't stop you from being an ass but please try and contain yourself.

And I am sure every plate coming into turn in was videotaped, every person was photographed and videotaped, and required to show ID for their 100.00
Better to throw the gun into the local river.

I used the Chicago gun turn in program to turn in every gun I ever owned. Now when Illinois bans "assault weapons" and they want to confiscate mine they can just go see Fadder Snuffy at St Sabinas where I turned it in.
Best ready made alibi ever!

exactly why turn in a good working firearm?
besides i would take to a REAL firearm store and have appraised
might be worth more then 100$
besides if THEY get some thing good
do you think they will destroy it?
i have a python from 1957 and s&w #39
from 1955 both ancient but still function fine knowing the replacement cost of each is well over 100$
did they think? yes but in the same breath it's not worth it unless you go to a firearm shop and by a wreck
for 50& or so and then trade it in
but the hassles is still not worth it

The Free Market Supply and Demand.

When they tax guns and make them unaffordable the market switches to knives, no problem.

Don't you dare say stabbing and World-Class Chicago Festival of Lights parade in the same sentence. Crime is down.

Ask the 67 year ol' doc that just got stuck in the head when he went to the bathroom at a Magnificent Mile hotel restaurant. Do you think he might be in favor of conceal carry?

OT, we will hit 500 and the supt will bury a story on Dec 29, even before the year ends!

Here are the headlines today:
2 killed, 7 wounded early Saturday
Boy, 16, and man, 23, killed in Sunday morning shootings
Man shot last month in South Side alley dies

Sounds like these guys are learning from Rham being humiliated a few months back during his gun turn in by a group of pro gun advocates. God forbid pro gun people game the system; we know everyone else does.

I wonder what the response would be if an ambitious FFL set up near the site of this turn in offering cash for guns? Seems every turn in there are a few guns that are actually worth some real money and one or two that are worth a LOT of money.

My husband has a gun I think I'll turn in to get some surprise x-mas money. He has one that says "HK MR 556" on the side. Is $100 a good deal? I don't want to ask the hubby cause I want it to be a surprise.

That's not "ancient," it's just "classic." A little care and they will be good for a couple hundred years at least. You won't get anything today better, and quite a bit that's worse.

Good deal. Money in the bank.

Once got a call for a weapon turn-in. Owner had passed away, daughter found the guns and called 911. I got the call. Nice valuable hunting guns. Told the lady she had two options. One, I could do the paperwork, inventory and all she would get is a copy of the inventory. Option two, she could take the guns to a gun shop and get paid for them. She chose option two. I gave her the names of a couple gun shops, left and coded 19 Paul. Few days later she flagged me down and was very happy. She took the guns to Shores and got $1,000. I would have paid her more but, like a goof, I always followed the rules and did not offer to buy the guns myself. She had no idea that guns could be so expensive.

Second story, last year my FOID was due to expire, sent renewal three months before expiration. Two months later, still no FOID. Called their office in Springfield, talked to a very nice lady, told her I was retired CPD. She told me they were swamped with renewals and new applications, looked for my application and found it while I was still on the phone. She even laughed at my joke about living in Madiganistan. Three days later my new card arrived in the mail.

Yes, south surburban hacks and moron. One chief told my family member who was having issues with a criminal son to " take him to church". When this kid destroyed theor stole the contents of the house they refused to arrest him because everything in the house was " family property". When he kicked, spit in the face and knocked down his mother and she retaliated by slapping him, they refused to arrest the 17 years ahole saying it was " mutual combat". Now you know why crime is so low in the couth burbs, or reported crime that is. They refused to make reports.

Who would get rid of functioning guns? Me. I inherited a few, very shitty .25 cal Saturday Night Specials from my grandfather. They are functional, but so shitilly made (and have a reputation for falling apart), I would never fire them. I don't think they are worth even $50. I think I might take part in this. $300-400 can get me a backup backup gun.

Yeah, that's a good price (snicker) and if you roll up that $100 bill (ask for singles) you can throw them at the home invaders coming to get ya.

Yeah us idiot "suburban" cops from Markham, Robbins, Blue Island, Dixmoor, and Harvey...we're such dummies.

FYI so many guns were turned in that they ran out of money. And no one was hurt by conducting it in a safe manner. You can stop splitting hairs about the idea of "why does it have to be functional?" The idea is that we don't want a handful of parts that could never be made to work handed to us in exchange for $100, the extent of which these Bennies was limited. We wanted to get guns that are most likely illegal owned that are in a condition to kill someone off the street. We in the south suburbs love the idea of concealed carry. This was not a program to target law abiding gun owners.

The CPD attitude that the "south suburbs" have it so easy is a joke. We laugh at CPD cops that couldn't process a crime scene or conduct a proper interview let alone process their own prisoners properly, who always have 10 cars available for backup when the sh*t-hammer falls while we get by with the 2 partners on shift with us and the surrounding agencies that run to assist us just as we do for them.

Get over your salty self. We're all cops, so stop with the underhanded comments, and accept the reality that the streets we deal with aren't any different than yours. Except that you have Portillo's near the 8th district for 10 squads to be down on 1 hour lunches at the same time.
