In Chicago, the police department is encouraging people to turn in their guns, on Saturday, in exchange for a $100 gift certificate.
Deputy Supt. Alfonza Wysinger told WBBM that anyone who turns in a real gun will get a $100 gift card. Replicas and BB guns will get $10.
Deputy Wysinger said: “No questions asked. Just show up at the church, and hand over the weapons to the CPD officer that will be there, and get your $100 gift card. So we strongly suggest that people come out that have weapons lying around the house, or weapons, maybe, that they don’t necessarily want in their house. This is a chance to get some money for their weapon, and get another dangerous weapon on the street.”
