And the ignoramuses who perpetrated the waste of taxpayer money are feeeeeeling oh so smug and righteous that they are saving lives.
If only they knew how that actually worked in this case, but in the unicorn fart and fairy dust world, reality seldom makes a connection.
They’re so fucking stupid, they, of the “ban assault type revolver clip capacity magnums” world, wouldn’t recognize a non-functional piece of scrap iron if they saw it.

Just scheming here – think if I put a nail and rubber band gizmo into a piece of rusty 1/2″ pipe, they’d give me some cash for a .50 cal. zip gun?

Brings a tear of joy to my eye.
Way to support the kids being taught responsibility around firearms.
When Michigan banned all fireworks that go boom, we used to make calcium carbide “cannons” out of coffee cans. With a little practice, we could launch the coffee can lid across the street. it worked great until a friend passed a lit match over the open can while I was spitting on the pebbles inside. they called me “nobrows” for a while after that.
Whatever guvvamint tries to do, it always achieves the opposite.
The “enlightened” leaders of Chicago believe that crime rates would drop if there were no longer any guns (except those belonging to cops) in the city. People may remember videos from just a few years ago of a large brawl that took place outside a Chicago high school where assailants went after their victims with pieces of railroad ties used as clubs and spears. More recently, there have been the “flash mobs” where gangs of youths have attacked lone victims or have stormed and pillaged stores on the edges of the tonier neighborhoods on Chicago’s north side. Chicago has some nice sites: the museums, the Art Institute, Navy Pier, and the “Gold Coast” on north Michigan Avenue. I haven’t been in the city for several years – too expensive and, at times, too scary.
You just cracked me up Paul! Why? Cause we used to use carbide light mounted caps for night racoon hunting in Kentucky. Soooo, my cousin and I, on a whim one day on the farm, poured about a pound of carbide in a 55 gallon drum, poured water on it, put the lid on and light a short piece of dynamite fuze that ended inside said barrel.
It went off an sent the barrel lid about a hunnert yards of altitude. (Collateral damage…) The “Boom” factor wasn`t considered and it turned out the neighbor across the fence was milking his cows in a nearby barn. Whell! The carbide made an exposive sound, likely greater than the *Hiroshima atomic fucking bomb* and caused a cow stampede inside his cow barn!!!!!!
He reported us to my grandpa, an we got to clean his milk barn stalls for a month, for free, Which my cousin and I considered worse than the Nuremburg trials for the fucking Nazis……………………..
