    I love it. The article is pretty funny. It's a good read.
    Mark Twain:
    The government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a
    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Makes you proud to be a 'Merican.

    Them boys weren't clinging to their guns and religion... they was givin' up the guns to preach to the next generation... Good on 'em.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    That is a great story. I wonder if there are rules against the officers involved "rescueing" special guns that people might turn in? That could turn into a nice little collateral duty, pick up a few antique firearms for free. But knowing the politics, they are probably all melted down.

    I love it when a plan comes together. Best use of a “buy-back” I have seen yet.

    Now that is how it is done. They should send a plaque to the mayor of Chicago to thak him.

    Nice! This part made me laugh though.... <snip> "One CPD officer “broke” one of our guns by beating it against a metal door frame trying to open the action to ensure it was unloaded. It was an old muzzle-loading double-barreled shotgun that was missing a stock and much of its receiver" LOL
