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.
