Recession Hits Chicago’s Annual Gun Buy Back Program

Man the anti-gunners are losing again and again. It’s almost as if people believe in the right to bear arms. Every year Chicago, the safest place on Earth thanks to their draconian gun laws, holds a gun buy back program. Too bad for them people aren’t donating money like they used to:

Last year, about $130,000 was collected. This year, only $50,000 has come in. An assault weapon will still be worth $100. And BB guns and replicas once again will bring $10.

Because of the funding issue surrendering a handgun only nets you $50.00 of dirty money instead of $100.00. Maybe it’s the hard economy, maybe it’s the fact more and more people are waking up and realizing disarming our populace isn’t a good thing, or maybe it’s a little bit of both. Either way it’s nice to see this program floundering as it only gets honest citizens to turn in guns while the criminals keep theirs.
