Default Group turns tables on Chicago gun turn-in, uses money for gun camp

Group turns tables on Chicago gun turn-in, uses money for gun camp

A Downstate pro-gun group says it turned payouts from Chicago’s firearm buyback program last weekend into a fund-raiser for a youth summer camp — a National Rifle Association shooting camp, that is. The city collected 5,500 guns last Saturday in the annual buyback. The city gave out $100 MasterCard gift cards for each gun and $10 cards for BB guns and replicas.
Sixty of the guns and several BB guns were turned in by the Champaign-based Guns Save Life. In return, the group received $6,240 in gift cards, said John Boch, president of the group.


Guns Save Life is known for the pro-gun signs the group posts along Interstate 57 between Chicago and Champaign. It also publishes a monthly gun journal.
Most of the money will go toward buying ammunition for an NRA youth camp in Bloomington. The rest will pay for four bolt-action rifles that will be given away to campers.
“This was rusty, non-firing junk that we turned in,” Boch said. “We are redirecting funds from people who would work against the private ownership of firearms to help introduce the next generation to shooting safely and responsibly.”


Ya gotta love it!
Maybe the umpteenth sequel of American Pie can include 'Gun Camp Girl'.

They are just doing what everyone else does. With their no questions asked policy one has to wonder how many murder weapons and stolen weapons are also turned in for cash.

This is great!

Teach kids from a young age how to safely handle and respect fire arms and guess what......they handle guns more safely and respect them more as adults! Go Figure! *smacks forehead*

I need to find something like that near me. The local boy scout camp could probably use a new rifle or two, and I know where I can find some clunkers that I'd be afraid to shoot.
