Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti announced that people will be able to turn in firearms — no questions asked — in exchange for up to $200 in Ralphs grocery cards at two Los Angeles locations on Saturday, Dec. 13.
“The goal is to take these guns off the street and make sure they don’t fall into the hands of criminals or children,” Garcetti said. “The gun buyback gives Angelenos the opportunity to help make our city safer by turning in unwanted firearms.”
The amount exchanged per firearm will depend on its type — up to $200 for assault weapons as specified in the state of California and up to $100 for handguns, rifles and shotguns. The LAPD Gun Unit will be on site to determine the types of firearms surrendered.
People can surrender their firearms between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Mid-City Los Angeles Parking Lot between Wilton and Gramercy Place, 2379 West Washington Blvd. and the Valley Van Nuys Masonic Temple, 14750 Sherman Way, Van Nuys.
