Police gun sale fundraiser a bad idea

The League of Women Voters of Central Kane County is strongly opposed to the St. Charles Police Department raising funds by selling confiscated or turned-in guns.

One goal of the League, and presumably of the police, is to prevent violence and protect the health and safety of citizens through limiting the accessibility of handguns.

Even if the guns are being sold to "legal" distributors, there is still a possibility that these guns will find their way into the hands of people who use them to commit crimes.

We urgently request that the St. Charles City Council oppose the proposed sale of guns.

Jean Pierce

1st vice president
