Give up an unwanted gun, get a free shopping card -
In an effort to get firearms off the streets, the Fort Worth Police Department is implementing a gun buyback program. The first opportunity will be noon-5 p.m. May 20 at True Vine Baptist Church, 3732 Miller St.
Anyone who brings an unwanted gun will receive a $50 Visa card, no questions asked.
Saturday’s event will be the first of five. Watch City News and the PD’s Facebook page to learn about future dates. The PD’s goal is to get 200 guns at each buyback.
Funding for the program comes from seized assets.
Buyback organizers ask that firearms be brought to the event unloaded.
