Chicago police paying to disarm citizens

Gun Bullets

When the American founders wrote and approved the “right to bear arms”, the intention was that if the government ever became too authoritarian, the people could raise a militia and rebel just like the founders themselves had done. Since the signing of the document over 200 years ago, many Americans have forgotten the real purpose of the second amendment and in Chicago, citizens are now getting paid to disarm themselves.

    Too funny…ON the street.  “This is a chance to get some money for their weapon, and get another dangerous weapon on the street.”

    I would agree, giving a weapon to the cops is inherently dangerous.  Who knows how many of them will be used kill citizens, or plant as evidence after another wrongful use of force by CPD.

    Really?  Reading the U.S. Constitution shows the Militias are there to be called up by the Government to stop people trying to overthrow it.
