CBS2/KCAL9 To Sponsor LA’s Annual Gun Buyback Event

Anonymous Gun BuybackLOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — The city of Los Angeles will host its annual gun buyback event on Saturday, Dec. 14.

CBS2/KCAL9 are proud sponsors of this year’s Anonymous Gun Buyback, which will allow residents to turn in an unloaded firearm for a Ralph’s gift card worth as much as $200.

The event will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at locations in Central and South Los Angeles, as well as the Valley. Gift cards worth $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 $200 gift cards. Quantities of gift cards are limited and subject to availability.

Organizers ask that firearms be transported unloaded and vehicle trunks. There is no limit to the number of firearms that can be surrendered, however, there may be a limit on the number of gift cards an individual receives.

Once surrendered, firearms become the property of the Los Angeles Police Department. Firearms will be checked for lost and stolen status, and organizers say they will return those weapons to their rightful owners. The rest of the surrendered guns will be destroyed by the LAPD.
