Austin Police buying Guns with Groceries
26 May 2010 - 23:34, by , in Forums, No comments

The Austin Police Department and the Greater Austin Crime Commission have teamed up to get guns off the streets with an innovative program called “Guns 4 Groceries”.

The Austin Police Department will be “buying back” weapons, guns, fake guns, BB guns, air-soft guns and pellet guns from residents with groceries.

Turn in a BB gun or air gun and get $10 grocery certificate. Handguns and rifles get $100, and assault rifles receive $200 in grocery certificates. (No questions asked.)

All guns must be unloaded and the ammunition must be packaged in a separate bag.

The Gun 4 Groceries program starts on June 5th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Austin Cornerstone Church at 1101 Reinli Street.
