Thousands Line Up In LA To Swap Guns For Grocery Store Gift Cards In Buyback


According to Reuters, officers from the LAPD handed out $200 grocery store gift cards to people who turned in — no questions asked — an automatic weapon, and $100 gift cards to those who turned in a handgun, rifle or shotgun.

The LA Times reported long lines of cars had formed as people turned in at Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena and the Van Nuys Masonic Temple.

The paper reported seeing two men in a pickup truck with two children in the backseat handing over a rifle, pistol and a MAC-12 altered with a silencer.

Annual $100 and $200 grocery cert. from Ralph's Supermarket (a subsidiary of Krogers) just so you know whom to thank.
