Anybody who turns in a gun to BPD today will get a $100 Target gift card in a gun buyback to honor the memory of the children and teachers who died at Sandy Hook.
People dropping off guns at one of several collection point between now and 4 p.m. will not be asked any questions, the city says. The guns have to be capable of firing, but unloaded, and packed in a plastic bag inside something like a backpack. The gift-card offer only applies to handguns.
