A police department in the Chicago suburbs said some of the guns obtained from a buyback program will be sold to a pair of licensed dealers.Ok, so, do-good nitwit, inflated with a sense of his own moral superiority, sells grandpa’s antique L.C. Smith shotgun to the police for pennies on the dollar; police resell to gun dealer – presumably making a profit (from which the taxpayers are unlikely to ever benefit) – dealer sells to, say, nitwit’s neighbor, also banking a profit; nitwit visits neighbor and sees his grandpa’s gun hanging on the wall, says, “Gawrsh, Mickey, I used to have one just like that! Those things are dangerous, you know; might want to do one of those gun buyback things, like I did.” And the great Cycle of Stupid continues.
St. Charles Police Chief James Lamkin said about 20 firearms obtained through a gun buyback program and seized by courts will be sold to the dealers, the Chicago Tribune reported Friday.
"There's value in these guns," Lamkin said. "They're not illegal guns. Quite honestly, it's a bottom line for us."
