Couldn't help but think of you when I heard this on the radio. A religious group organized a buyback just in time for Christmas with grocery store gift cards. $100 for any gun in working order. $200 for an assault rifle. No questions asked. 168 weapons will be destroyed. One guy turned in an Uzi! Several people refused the cards. Several more turned in weapons after the gift cards ran out.
It was the third year that the United African-American Ministerial Action Council of San Diego has sponsored the event aimed at curbing gun violence.
The event began two years ago after two teenagers were fatally shot by gang members.
I still don't understand why pro-gun folks object to these things.
