Now that's a smile!

Just over a year ago, I talked a bit about what I think of the gun "buybacks" that are so routinely implemented as a way of "getting guns off the streets." Perhaps, though, I was being unfair. This article isn't new, but I just recently discovered it, and it pleases me so much that I just have to shout it from the rooftops. How can you not like the idea of $1700 in "buyback" money going directly to a pro-gun rights organization?

On Saturday, July 21, Chicago held its largest and most generous city-sanctioned gun buy of junk and orphaned firearms. The organizers paid $100 for each firearm, regardless of age, functionality or type. Turn in locations were situated at 23 churches throughout the city.


Guns Save Life participated in this worthy event, attracted by the offer of $100 pre-paid credit cards for any firearms!
That's just an excerpt, of course--read the article for the whole story.

Father "Snuffy" Pfleger is often heavily involved in these Chicago area "buybacks"--I wonder if he was in on this one, and if so, what he thinks about helping to finance the fight against Chicago's civilian disarmament tyranny.

ahhh gun buybacks, what a great way to get rid of that old shotgun that stopped working a few hunting seasons ago... and you get $100 for a gun that no one else would give you $5 for... that $100 would be well spent on getting a new shotgun
