'Gifts for guns' program makes SoCal safer
COMPTON, Calif. (KABC) -- Sheriff's deputies were in Compton Tuesday, inviting residents to turn in their firearms in exchange for gift cards from Ralph's, Target and other retailers.
Participants received $100 holiday gift cards to use at local retailers and grocery stores in exchange for their guns.
Individuals turning in assault rifles received $200 gift cards and those turning in poor quality guns walked away with $50 cards.
The life saving exchange program ends when the guns are destroyed at sheriff's headquarters.
