CHICAGO (CBS) — Using the lure of $100 gift cards, the Chicago Police Department is encouraging people to get guns out of their homes and turn them in this Saturday, during the annual gun turn-in program.
As WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports, the Police Department is partnering with 20 churches..

First Deputy Supt. Alfonza Wysinger says anyone who turns in a real gun will get a $100 gift card. Replicas and BB guns are worth $10.

“No questions asked,” Wysinger said. “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.”

The gun turn-in event, dubbed “Don’t Kill a Dream, Save a Life,” is on from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the following locations:
Take from the people and give to the corrupt Chicago police. They steal the money through taxes and then use that money to encourage people to take guns and turn them over.

Actually that's pretty much how it works and it's a waste.

The thugs using guns won't turn them over for $100.

They can make way more robbing people that gave up the guns for the cash.

My guess is they hope some dumb kids will take guns from homes to get 100$

Who else would hand over a 600$ gun for a $100 gift.

When Delaware did this, a few people set up outside the venue and were paying $200 cash for working guns instead of the $150 gift card the state was offering.

Great idea. I'm sure in Chicago the police would execute the people trying to buy the guns for 200$,shut down the stand, and get a promotion.

I'm surprised that didn't happen in Delaware. I guarantee the guys outside caught some shit for it.

Will the Chicago PD be outside of the venue arresting people for carrying weapons within the city limits? Sounds like a big sting operation to me.

A case of 20 Mosin Nagants can be had for $1500. Let's set up a Kramer-like scheme to turn in 5000 rifles for a neat little profit of $125,000 less gas and tolls.

Hey genius, it's $100, not 100$.

That happened in LA a couple years back. Some dude went to a gun show, bought a bunch of guns for 20-30 bucks each and then sold them to the gun grabbers for $100+.

most of the guns that are turned in are relics or total pieces of shit.
And the number of antiques that got scooped up by things things is painful.
