The Futility of Gun Turn-Ins

When it comes to government 'programs'....it's good to remember that we are NOT dealing with Rocket Scientists. The premise that 'guns' cause crime is about as valid as suggesting that MATCHES cause ARSON. People with criminal intent commit crimes; if a firearm is an aid to making that vocation profitable, then there will be CRIMINALS who commit CRIMES! WHY, oh why, do so many nitwir politicians behave as if they don't understand that? ANSWER: Control!!!

If you've got some clothes you don't need anymore, you can give them to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. If you have an old car, you can call various organizations to take it away. And if you're in Chicago and have a gun that's burning a hole in your pocket, you can get rid of it on Saturday, no questions asked.

 

The city government has a great fondness for gun turn-in events. It's done six of them in the past six years, collecting more than 23,000 weapons. This one will be held at 23 churches, and anyone...
