The CPD's annual Gun Buy-Back

The CPD's annual Gun Buy-Back takes place tomorrow between 10:00 AM and 4:00 PM at United Church of Rogers Park, 1545 W. Morse Ave., here in Rogers Park.

Sponsored by the Chicago Police CAPS project, last year more than 6,000 weapons were collected.

When you turn in a weapon, you will receive a MasterCard gift card worth $100 for assault weapons; $50 for unspecified guns; and $10 for BB guns. These gift cards go quickly, so be there early!

For more info, call (312) 745-5907.

Rogers Park Chamber of Commerce fully supports this project. There have been many, many reports of gunfire, injuries and deaths in our community and the city during this past year. Too many have involved children shot or killed by stray bullets.
