then there have been stories of gang members turning in guns that were used in crimes to get rid of them for free.
This happened here a couple years ago.
Minneapolis police officials said they will not ask questions of people who turn in guns during a buy. The buy back is sponsored by a group called the Twin Cities Anti-Violence Coalition.
Lt. Greg Reinhardt said plain-clothed officers will be on hand to take the firearms, but will not try to identify the person bringing in the gun.
Participants will receive a 50 dollar gift card for revolvers and 100 dollars for a semi-automatic. Reinhardt said they are not accepting rifles.
