Guns Save Life members netted our second biggest haul ever as we once again turned in broken-down, often rust-laden junk for perfectly good cash at a July 13th Chicago gun buyback.

GSL will use the proceeds from this event to fund organized youth shooting programs, including sending young people to the nations longest-running NRA Youth Shooting Camp in Bloomington........

I serve as GSLs executive director. On Saturday morning, I and an undisclosed number of my fellow GSL member patriots turned in 23 guns and three pellet guns. Staff at the event mistook one of the pellet guns for a real gun and issued us a total of 24 $100 debit cards and two $10 cards, for a total of $2,420.

The $2,420 marks our second biggest year behind 2012 when we came home with well over $5000 in our biggest haul ever. That event netted us national publicity and gave Chicagos political leaders a black eye. In fact, they suspended the whole buyback program for at least two years due to fallout from the 2012 event.

Each year that we successfully transact business with the do-gooders in Chicago, we direct our proceeds towards youth shooting programs, including the nations longest-running NRA Youth Shooting Camp at Darnalls GunWorks and Ranges in Bloomington. (2018 photo-rich stories here and here. 2017 stories here and here.)



Trade in junk, use proceeds to train the youth. Well done!

That is wonderful.

Should have a collection for people's old pellet guns for this purpose.

Someone could get tetanus from handling those rusty guns.

At $10 each, you could garage sale haggle all summer and net some serious cash return at a buyback with just pellet guns...

Would it be treated as a work related injury if a cop that was helping with this gun buyback were to catch tetanus?
