While perusing the news today when I got home from work I found something that made me smile so I figured I would share it with you. In Chicago they have a gun buy back program where they will give you money for your gun in the form of a visa debit card. By using American Ingenuity and causing everyone to laugh at the people who actually thought criminals would turn in their guns for a couple hundred bucks, a pro-gun group has used the money they got for selling broken guns back to the city to host a youth shooting camp.
That's right, they sold old busted guns one of which was held together with duck tape, literally, and used the funds for an NRA sponsored event to teach kids about the joys of shooting and the safety precautions and safe handling of firearms.
Wonder what Rahm Emanuel thinks of this?
They turned in 60 guns to get $6,240 in visa gift cards that they then turned around and purchased guns and ammo they used to hold the event. Somewhere there is a Brady crying.
"Guns Save Life," based in Champaign, Ill., recently sold 60 firearms to the Chicago Police Department -- 10 of which were manufactured before 1898 -- in exchange for $6,240 in gift cards, according to group president John Boch. The sale also included five BB guns and a rickety pump-action shotgun that was held together by duct tape and zip ties, he said.
