Chicago Gun Buy Back June 2, 2018---$100

Okay all you Raven and Jennings owners (you know who you are) head off to Chicago and on June 2, 2018 you can get $100 for each one. They say they are NOT doing a sliding scale, it's going to be a flat $100.

If you're going I'd suggest you get there early.

DO NOT BRING A GUN TO CHICAGO. This has all the makings of a trap. You get stopped a half mile away, car searched, you go to jail. No pass through transport exemption as your destination was in Chicago

Did something suddenly change in Chicago and I didn't get the memo?

Guns are not illegal in Chicago, last I checked. I'll let this Chicago Trib author do my talking for me......

"Chicago does not have the strictest gun laws in the country. It’s time for gun lovers to stop spreading that lie."

Full article here.....

So can a person that can legally carry a firearm in another state travel to Chicago with a gun?
Can a person in Chicago own a firearm without any other restrictions than what the federal government has levied without any additional approval?
Anything other than a yes means that they have strict gun laws to me.

Well, she does have a point............but a hat would cover it nicely.

She talks about the criminals, but conveniently leaves the law-abiding victims out of the equation. Typical.

Apparently there's been a novel scheme from pro-gun groups to previous Chicago buybacks.

Exploiting gun buyback program in Chicago

Doesn't the phrase "buyback" imply the person buying the gun back, sold it or gave it to you?

I would think even a junk gun would be sold at a loss at 100$. There’s only $250k being budgeted for this campaign. So to scam the buyback you would need 2500 broken guns that can be had for less than $100.

If I lived closer, I'd bring an old Lorcin .380 that I have used to practice my polishing and other bubba-gunsmith techniques.

The only people who really profit are criminals who turn in stolen guns, perhaps stolen just for the gun-buy, (is any attempt made to return stolen guns to their owners?), and dirty cops who pick over the guns and steal anything really valuable for their private collections.

is there any guarantee that the turned-in firearms are actually going to be decommissioned?

Asking for a friend.
