Over in Baton Rouge four churches will be offering gas cards to anyone who turns in a handgun or assault weapon.
It is in a partnership with Circle K Stores Inc., whatever that is.
The event will be held Oct. 23 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. or when the $40,000 allocated to gun buybacks runs out, whichever happens first.
No questions will be asked and no IDs will be checked. Gas cards will range from $50 to $200, depending on the type of weapon turned over. Assault-style rifle exchanges will get $200 gas cards, for example.
Wish it was in Mississippi. I've always wanted to stand out front and offer more (and real cash) for the good stuff.
