Money for Guns

  • Hours after Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced a $250,000 gun buyback program on Monday, a downstate gun-rights advocate promised to come to Chicago to exploit it.

    “We will be delighted to transact business once more with do-gooders in Chicago,” John Boch, executive director of Champaign-based Guns Save Life, said Monday.

    Guns Save Life used Chicago’s 2012 gun buyback to embarrass city officials. That year, members said they turned in about 60 guns — some of them rusty and inoperable.

    They received $100 MasterCard gift cards for each gun, which they used to buy ammunition for a National Rifle Association youth camp in Bloomington and bolt-action rifles to give away to campers.

    Suburban Chicago gun dealers also took advantage of the no-questions-asked policy of the 2012 buyback to unload inventory worth less than $100 in exchange for the $100 cards, sources said.

    At the time, city officials angrily accused Guns Save Life of abusing a program intended to take guns off the streets of Chicago and reduce violence. But Boch says the group was simply demonstrating the ineffectiveness of the program.

    “Tell the mayor we need substance over symbolism,” he said Monday.
As members of these organizations, we'd also extend our thanks to the mayor and the gullible taxpayers/corporations coming up with this money. It shall be put to good use.

UPDATE: Not so fast! Rahm is ready for so-called "scammers:"
  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel says officials are ready for activists who want to thwart the city’s gun buyback program, reports WBBM [...]

    Mayor Emanuel says officials and community leaders will make sure that gun rights advocates don’t scam the weapons buyback program by turning in worthless guns for gift cards. The Champaign-based group Guns Save Life has threatened to turn in worthless, inoperable guns.

    “One of the things we did to redesign it is to work through our church leaders to make sure it’s exactly taking guns that we think need to get off the street off the streets,” Emanuel said. “I know where I stand. I stand with the residents, yesterday as well as last night, who want to see police on the street and getting both guns and kids off the street.”
And how exactly are the churches going to do this? Because churches are experts on guns. And the Department has already stated there will be no checking of ID's and pretty much no questions asked. It's not like they're setting up a portable firing range to test these things.

Are they going to discriminate against white people bringing in guns? Because we know lots of black people who belong to these groups. Are they going to only put the money in black neighborhoods? That might appear to be racist against brown and white people, after all, they're victims of crime, too. Oh wait...is Rahm only putting the quarter million in neighborhoods hardest hit by violence? Now we're getting closer to the problem that no one speaks about, but still claims is racist.

Give it up Rahm. One way or the other, you're going to give a bunch of this money to people who use it to educate people as to gun rights, sharpen their gun skills, or support gun camps for kids.

So your gun is going to need a city sticker in order to get a gift card? Maybe you'll have to show a current utility bill showing an address in a certain area. Rahm, you really are a complete moron.

Question for the beat cops: isn't the black market price for a working gun higher than $100 - I thought it was $200-$400 bucks?

If you're making a turn guns in no question asked program into an economic decision, no one in their right mind will sell something worth way more for $100 gift card. As someone with background in economics, this seems a bit idiotic.

Do you have FFLs and collectors line up near the buy-backs to intercept the good guns and offer a fair price? You know that if a collector or FFL buys the guns, they will go to a good home, and they are as off the streets as if Rahm himself personally melted them down.

I like the way you put it SCC. Da Mayor is going to get some generally worthless guns off the streets, and by doing so, he will be financing gun camps for kids, training ammo, and other gun rights related things. We all know gun buy backs are a sham and don't reduce crime. If liberals really wanted to reduce crime they would. They know what works. Tough law enforcement, putting crooks in jail and keeping them there and promoting families.

Administrative officers will ensure the department reports are in chronological order and also ensure efficiency rationing paper clips, white out,staples and manila file folders.

"A grieving mother of an alleged gangster in Puerto Rico had her dead son propped up in her bar to play one last game of dominos.

"Pictures show the late 23-year old Jomar Aguayo Collazo sitting at a table inside his mother's bar and dressed in a blue and white tracksuit with matching hat and sunglasses. In one hand, the corpse holds a domino and in the other a condom.

"Aguayo Collazo and two other alleged gang members were shot dead inside his mother's bar in Río Piedras, Puerto Rico just days before as he celebrated his birthday. Police purportedly found a gun on Aguayo Collazo following what is being described as a drug-related shooting..."

Winner winner! Chicken dinner! That's exactly the point. A decent gun costs so much more than $100. There has almost got to be a catch for this to be a bargain or break even situation. There are two main categories: the gun sucks and had no value anymore or the gun was used in the commission of a crime and you can sell it back to the city for $100...(a lot of other people won't want to buy it from you knowing there are bodies on it).

It's a political move because other people actually believe paying for guns off the street does something. Most people aren't giving up a gun they actually want to keep.

You actually think people are turning in good guns? THEY COST TOO MUCH TO TRADE IN FOR A FRACTION OF THE PRICE. This program, legitimately, is only for people trying to rid of guns they don't want or need, probably belonging to deceased family members and being old, rusty, pieces of crap that have sat in some attic or drawer for a long time. You act like Guns Save Lives is going to turn in a crappy gun and take the last gift card so poor Violent Felon Francis will get to the table, realize no more gift cards are left and make an ill fated decision not to change his life around thereby keeping another illegally possessed gun on the streets.

While we are on the topic of Guns....

lets just say I have this "friend" who had his personal carbine stolen out of the back of a squad car, locked in the rack, parked 10 feet from the front door of a Hospital ER and directly under the hospitals security camera. Window smashed, rack broken, gun gone after sitting on a prisoner for less than 30 minutes in relief. So my friend is told by a coworker who shows up to the scene that the brand of rifle he owned DSA Arms in Lake Barrington IL has a policy of repairing or replacing any rifle they sold that is damaged or stolen while being used properly in the course of duty. This friend of mine wasn't aware of that policy because he didn't purchase the gun from the manufacturer or a dealer but from a third party as a transfer. Even after being told of the policy, this officer was afraid they wouldn't honor it because he did not buy it directly from them. Not only did DSA Arms honor the policy, they went out of their way to reach out to the officer within hours of the incident to make sure that he knew about the policy - they even replaced the minor add ons and extras the officer had installed after purchasing the Rifle as well as throwing in some other minor magpul extras that he inquired about purchasing for his rifle while they were setting up his replacement rifle - they even discounted some ammo and a cleaning kit he bought when picking up the replacement rifle - they totally went out of their way and bent over backward to replace at no cost a very expensive piece of equipment the officer otherwise would not have likely had the money to replace right away. I just thought a company that goes the extra mile to be good to the CPD ought to be recognized. So if you are thinking of buying a carbine, DSA Arms in Lake Barrington IL would probably be a great choice for any member of CPD.

"lets just say I have this "friend" who had his personal carbine stolen out of the back of a squad car, locked in the rack, parked 10 feet from the front door of a Hospital ER and directly under the hospitals security camera. Window smashed, rack broken, gun gone after sitting on a prisoner for less than 30 minutes in relief."

As brazen as it gets -- but remember, CCW holders, "leave your gun in the car" before you enter someplace with a "No Guns" sticker.

...and if you use public transportation, where you are far more vulnerable, leave it at home.

Real two-tier setup here, value judgment based upon income, health, etc.

Ballerina pushed through this national health care plan so working class people could save $250 a month .
Yea bs on that one , ballerina raised health care insurance for retired city workers so high , some are paying 1/3 of pension for insurance .
remember folks keep voting democratic , make politicians millionaires , bring middle class down to poverty and give away more to those that can but refuse to work

I remember when they were giving gift cards for BB guns. Just about every other squad car had one I the truck or glove compartment, we would collect as many as we could and have a civilian friend turn them in. The city paid for some good parties.
