Skip to comments.Sweet: Pro-gun group turns the tables on gun control advocates
Posted on 07/12/2012 4:57:31 PM PDT by SJackson
This is your feel-good story for the day. A downstate Illinois gun rights group is using cash gleaned from a Chicago police gun turn-in program as a fundraiser for a camp for kids - run by the National Rifle Association.
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.
Guns Save Life is known for the pro-gun signs the group posts along Interstate 57 between Chicago and Champaign. It also publishes a monthly gun journal.
Most of the money will go toward buying ammunition for an NRA youth camp in Bloomington. The rest will pay for four bolt-action rifles that will be given away to campers.

This really is a feel good story, good belly-laugh, absolutely loved the irony with turning the Illinois govt. idiocy back on them. Thanks for posting.
