The City of Los Angeles is hosting its annual Anonymous Gun Buyback program on Saturday, December 13, 2014 from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
CBS2 and KCAL9 are sponsors of this year’s buyback, which invites residents to turn in firearms with no questions asked. The program is held each year in an effort to get illegal firearms off the streets.
Angelenos can turn in their unwanted firearms anonymously and receive a Ralph’s gift card.
Gift cards of up to $100 will be handed out in exchange for handguns, shotguns and rifles. Those turning in assault weapons, as classified by the state of California, will be given a gift card of up to $200.
Quantities of gift cards are limited and subject to availability.
The event is taking place at the following two locations in Los Angeles:
Mid-City Los Angeles
Parking Lot between Wilton & Gramercy Place
2379 West Washington Blvd.
Los Angeles, California, 90018
14750 Sherman Way
