Another Reason Gun "Buy-Backs" are a Bad Idea

I've written before about all the reasons gun "buy-backs" (which is a misnomer) end up hurting the communities in which they are executed.  Today I saw another reason why- because sometimes the administrator steals 62% of the $800,000 in tax money used to fund the buy back. 

By the way, that $479,183 that wasn't used for the program didn't include the administrators salary of $287,565.  Seriously, a bureaucrat is getting paid almost three hundred thousand dollars to run this scam of a program and that isn't enough, he steals more than half the money, the tax money, devoted for the program.  Do you think the citizens of Philly could have better benefited from the $1.2 million spent on that program in 2 years?

And people call out business as greedy!  Look anywhere in government and you'll find greed.  It's a part of the human condition found everywhere, not just in private enterprise.  Pundits moan about how the sequester means teachers and firemen have to be fired while more than a million is blown on a program like this with no results except for a bureaucrat living a lush lifestyle. 

Stay frosty, folks.
