Program trades guns for debit cards

They gathered Friday at the Grace and Peace Center church on North Kildare. The city is offering a $100 debit card for each firearm, and a $10 card for each BB, pellet or replica gun.

No questions are going to be asked, and the guns do not have to work.

Members of the group that gathered Friday said every contribution would help make a safer city.

"The reason we're getting involved is that we've had enough. We've had enough of this silliness. We've had enough of young people dying for no reason," one participant said.
