CHICAGO – Chicago Police are hoping to get more guns off the streets this weekend by hosting a gun return event in Lawndale on Saturday.
Gun drop-offs will be given a $ 100 Visa Gift Card with no questions asked. The department also pays $ 10 for each BB pistol, airsoft pistol, or replica pistol.
“This is not about tracing the gun, it’s about making sure the gun you found in your possession can be safely disposed of …” said Glenn Brooks Jr., police director of the CPD Community. “The most important thing is how we get these used and unwanted weapons off the streets.”
