Trade In Your Gun, Get Gift Cards & Groceries

Posted: Updated:
Compton, CA -

Got a gun or rifle you want to get rid of? Want a gift card to Target or Ralph's? In an effort to get more guns off the streets the Sheriff's Dept. will trade you guns for gift cards. No questions asked and you can remain anonymous.

Got a nonoperational gun? You can get a $50 gift card.

An operational firearm a hundred dollar gift card? If it's an assault rifle, $200.

So far over 173 guns and rifles, including some assault weapons, have been turned in since the program started just before 10 o'clock this morning.

The "Gift for Guns" program goes until 5 pm or whenever they run out of gift cards. The sheriff's department tells me they have $75,000 worth to give out!
