    Have any old junk you want to be rid of? Worth $100 to Mayor Daley. Clean out the closets and get paid. Looks like that old JC Higgins parts gun is worth something after all.

    It's tempting to make up a pile of zip guns and turn them in for lots of rewards.

    The story says,

    "Owners can hand over any firearm, shotgun, rifle, automatic or semi-automatic pistol or revolver – no questions asked."

    I wonder how many thugs are going to steal guns to turn in for cash?

    You guys are missing the point....

    GET YOURSELF DOWN THERE, RIGHT NOW, with a couple thousand bucks in your pocket!!!!!!!

    ask folks walking in if you can see the gun...you might be SUPRISED at what's getting sold for $100. S&W revolvers, Glocks, etc. That old shotgun MIGHT be a Parker side by side. Or a Remington 1100. Or a Winchester 101.

    Offer them $125 or $150 to take it off their hands.....

    ONE good gun would make it a pretty good day!

    jeff, a couple of dealers tried that here a few years back. The cops ran them off the mall property and threatened them with trespass. Also run off was anyone who simply stood there and gave advice, like "Ma'am, that shotgun is a collector piece and may be worth $2000. You might want to have it appraised."<br>
    <br>
    A dealer friend of mine did run an ad for his own gun turn in concurrent with the news story about a city sponsered turn in. The authorities were not amused.<br>
    <br>
    What I'd like to know is, the police and the city are de facto in the business of purchasing and transferring firearms (to the smelter). If you or I did that we'd need an FFL. Why doesn't BATF require the city to have an FFL?

    Would like to know where the corporate donations are coming from. I think this is double talk about Prince Rod giving tax dollars to King Daley. Even if they aren't it would be nice to identify where the money's coming from.
