You know those insert grenades you sometimes see at militaria collector tables at gun shows? Well, it looks like the Chicago politicians are willing to pay handsomely for them:
In announcing the early results and encouraging others to take part in the day-long event,Â Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis announced that 1,335 guns were turned in during the first half hour, including what looked like two hand grenades.
“What are we doing with hand grenades inÂ Chicago?” Weis asked, incredulous.
Bomb and arson investigators determined the two real-looking grenades were inert, said Officer Daniel O’Brien of Police News Affairs. “They’re not capable of exploding,” O’Brien said.
I’m pretty sure the profit margin was pretty hefty on those. Something to keep in mind next time there’s a buyback.
