City of Chicago unwittingly funds gun camp for youth

Back in the day, ingenuity and critical thinking was a mainstay of the American education system.  Through progressive policies and a dumbing down of students, the ability to profit from given situations is fewer and far between today.

Just look at our government and the economic crisis.

However, a studious group of gun owners and dealers found a way to not only provide young people in the Chicago area a way to learn about guns at camp, but to use Chicago's draconian polices of firearm buy backs to actually fund the instruction.

A pro-gun group claims it flipped the script on Chicago's firearms buyback program by selling old, broken rifles to the city and then using the money to buy guns and ammo for an NRA-sponsored shooting camp for kids.

"Guns Save Life," based in Champaign, Ill., recently sold 60 firearms to the Chicago Police Department -- 10 of which were manufactured before 1898 -- in exchange for $6,240 in gift cards, according to group president John Boch. The sale also included five BB guns and a rickety pump-action shotgun that was held together by duct tape and zip ties, he said.

"The real delicious irony here is that the city of Chicago is paying for rifles that we're giving away to young people as part of this camp," Boch told FoxNews.com. "The program was intended to get unwanted and unused guns off the street to make the community safer. We provided them unused and unwanted guns." - Fox News

So while Rahm Emmanuel and the progressives continue to think that removing guns from law abiding citizens will slow down their horrendous crime and violence rates, intelligent people in Illinois will be teaching and proving that it is the law abiding citizen, and their ABILITY under the constitution to have guns for protection, that will in the end, save many more lives than government policy will.
