Police Admit Gun Buyback Doesn’t Bring in 'Ones Causing Problems'

Leave it to Chicago to throw good money at bad ideas in an attempt to end their city’s violent gun crime. But rather than going after criminals committing gun crimes, they’re appealing to citizens to turn in their unused and wanted firearms.

More than 250 guns were turned into Chicago police at St. Sabina Church on Saturday. Police say the gun buyback may have taken hundreds of guns off the streets, but admit they “aren’t the ones causing problems”. Yet Chicago’s police superintendent said that with over 1,000 shootings already this year; gun buybacks are a step toward battling the city’s gun violence.

So which one is it?

WGN reported:

“We’ve gotten a number of different types of long guns, shotguns, rifles, handguns .38s, .22s, a wide variety of weapons were brought in today,” said Eric Washington, Deputy Chief of the Community Policing Program. “If that weapon is in a home and it’s burglarized, it’s one of the first things going out. Like I said, it’s going to end up back on the street in somebody else’s hands, and potentially end up killing some kid — a resident of the city of Chicago.”
