Guns for Money

Gun owners can trade in their firearms Saturday for a cash card.

Monique Bond is a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department.

"Hopefully with the incentive of a hundred dollar gift card, we will be able to at least attract some residents or people to turn in a dangerous gun no questions asked," Bond says.

23 area churches have partnered with the Chicago Police Department to plan the program.

The guns that are turned in will be melted.
