The first gun buyback program under Mayor Eric Garcetti will take place this weekend.
People will be able to surrender guns anonymously at any of three Gun Buyback locations. Those that give up their handgun, shotgun or rifle will get a $100 Ralphs giftcard. $200 gift cards will be given to those giving up asault weapons "as classified in the state of California."
The program is part of the Mayor's Office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development. Two local TV stations are acting as corporate sponsors.
Garcetti says he hopes to get 2000 guns off the streets.
