    Gun buyback: Program to pay market rate for high-end firearms

    Friday, October 12, 2012, at 9:42 am by Bill Smith


    Gun buyback programs in Chicago and elsewhere have been criticized for offering a flat $100 for any working weapon turned in, with critics saying that's not enough to get people to turn in guns that are actually likely to be used in crimes.

    "One of the most difficult things is to get criminals to turn in their guns," Eddington said. "It's like offering $100 to a plumber to turn in his tools -- it ain't gonna happen."



    ....snip

    But he said he knows that a lot of the weapons likely to be collected will be ones unlikely to ever have been used in a crime -- "something that's been in Uncle Ben's drawer forever, or a shotgun that's been in the closet, even though the owner hasn't been hunting in 15 years," Eddington said.

    But even getting those weapons should cut down on accidental shootings, the chief added. (yeah, the 'rare' accidental shooting rationale....snort!)

    I keep hoping that cincinnati will do one of these so I can show up with some cash and buy some nice weapons cheap before they get to the buyback program
    English is my second language, I have been told my use of it is harsh, apologies if this is the matter.

    You know what stops a bad guy with a gun? A good guy with a gun

    Nothing like a senseless contradiction to illustrate how useless these programs are.

    I just wish one would come to my town, so I could unload my Hi-points.

    So they want to pay top dollar for some fire arms. It is only tax money anyway not like it was real money.
    They can buy the guns the cash will go to buy drugs they will steal another gun and the cycle just keeps going

    They only have $17,000 worth of donations in the bank to fund this program and they want to buy back AK-47s at market value. They better hope no one shows up with a full-auto version or their funds are going to run dry fast.

    These buyback programs are such a scam. I can't possibly comprehend what they're thinking with this nonsense. It's been proven over and over to have no effect, yet it's allowed to continue, often on the taxpayers' dime. Absolutely reprehensible.

    The Illinois State Rifle Association used the last Chicago gun buyback program as a pretty successful fundraiser. They turned in a bunch of old busted up guns for a $100 each.

    if you need to unload anything I know people in that town :) those that will be collecting and those that can donate.

    I am amazed that they are wasting money on this. That is one bizarre town
