Chicago Gun Buyback Will Do Sweet FA About Gun Crime

Another day, another crime-infested urban area, another gun buyback. “Organized by the city, the CPD’s Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy and several faith- and community-based non-violence groups, the Gun Turn-In event will be held simultaneously at 23 churches between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m,” huffingtonpost.com reports. “Firearms can be turned in for a $100 MasterCard gift card, and replica and BB-guns will be accepted in exchange for a $10 gift card.” Just in case you thought the initiative was anti-crime not anti-gun, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy puts the program into perspective: “There’s way too many guns in the state of Illinois.” Alternatively, not enough. Anyway, Windy City entrepreneurs looking for a tidy profit might want to snap-up a couple of hundred $2.95 Super Cap Guns from Amazon. If the gun grabbers balk, remind them that no questions asked means no questions asked.
