The Miami Police Department wants your guns. And they’ll give you gift cards in exchange for weapons this weekend, no questions asked.
The gift cards will be for Walmart, Target or Milam’s stores and are valued from $50 or more, depending on the type of gun and the number of weapons donated, the police department said.
Folks turning in an AR-15 or AK-47 style rifle may receive cards worth up to $250, the agency said.
The buyback will happen Saturday, March 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Henderson Park in Little Havana.
“Our gun buybacks are a great opportunity to take some guns off the street and out of the hands of criminals that might use them to commit numerous types of crimes,” Commander Freddie Cruz said in a Facebook post.
Donors should arrive with unloaded weapons. Officers will be available to help those who don’t know how to remove ammunition.
The park, at 971 NW 2nd St., is west of Interstate 95, north of West Flagler Street and south of the Miami River.
