More Money Located
If Rahm keeps this up, he might not have to raise taxes! Of course, he'll have to stop giving the money away in the first place:
- Mayor Emanuel will announce a new fund today to support local gun buy-back events.
The city will provide $250,000 for churches and community-based organizations to host their own gun buy-backs.
The police department will help staff them, recover the guns and provide cash cards for the guns that are turned in.
The organizations will host and promote the events.
Ah yes, the "gun buyback." Proven time and again to not have a single iota of effect on crime rates and actually helps get rid of "hot" guns used ion all sorts of crimes, not to mention a few expensive collectibles that would bring a legit seller many thousands of dollars in numerous cases.
On the bright side, the taxpayer money also goes to many gun organizations who use the $100 gift cards to buy ammo for gun camps and training hours to teach responsible gun owners how to shoot better, so it isn't all bad.
