Is there a law against face to face transfers of non NFA weapons in Chicago? :P Someone could clean up if they offered people in line a bit more for their guns.
I had to chuckle at the part where mayor Daley talks about how last year 1900 guns where turned into the buy back program last year and he says “Just to think 1900 people could have been victims of gun violence. That gun could last another 50-60 years.”
So 1900 guns turned in equals 1900 shootings that were prevented? :roll: Maybe lots more incidents of gun violence were prevented, or maybe none… why bother making up such a statistic.
Also, why would the gun only last another 50-60 years?
