    Group turns tables on Chicago gun turn-in...

    ... uses money for gun camp

    I saw this on American Thinker originally which linked to the Chicago Sun-Times article.

    A Downstate pro-gun group says it turned payouts from Chicago's firearm buyback program last weekend into a fund-raiser for a youth summer camp -- a National Rifle Association shooting camp, that is.
    The city collected 5,500 guns last Saturday in the annual buyback. The city gave out $100 MasterCard gift cards for each gun and $10 cards for BB guns and replicas.
    Sixty of the guns and several BB guns were turned in by the Champaign-based Guns Save Life. In return, the group received $6,240 in gift cards, said John Boch, president of the group.
    see the article for the rest...


    This statement summed it up perfectly,
    “I think it’s a very good example of the resourcefulness of the pro-gun side to take the initiative to turn something used by anti-gunners into a positive,” Todd Vandermyde, the NRA’s chief lobbyist in Illinois, said.
