I Got Your Gun Buyback Right Here, Genius!

Xavier posted the letter from John from Guns Save Life (formerly Champaign County Rifle Association) the best pro-gun organization in the state, bar none. I've said many times that I wish these guys were in charge of the movement statewide, and in the last year or two they seem to be moving in that direction.

GSL literally sends officers to gun "buybacks" in Chicago, Rockford, Peoria, etc with bags of junkers donated by members. These are turned in for cash or, if no cash is offered, for the prizes which are then offered for sale to members. The cash is then used to finance pro-gun activities for GSL! This time, they're spending money on .22 rifles to give away to kids. In the past, I believe they've put the money toward more "Burma-Shave" propaganda signs along the highways. It's a long read, but it's well worth it. You owe it to yourself to read at least far enough to see a young Chicago cop explain that WWII snipers used pump-action .22lr rifles.

Great story, but who reads Ann Coulter and expexts to be taken seriously?

ROTFLMAO at Mr. Oblivious' comment!

Actually, I just wanted to write
and say that CPD does NOT get
a kickback for confiscating.

Nor do they get free vaca-time.

They might get a pat on the back
and an (already) free donut, but
nothing more...
