Activist priest Father Michael Pfleger has planned another gun buyback program, at St. Sabina Church August 16. Although other buyback events have been successful, this time Pfleger is targeting 16- to 30-year-olds.
“University of Chicago Crime Lab" said those are the most significant and most impactful gun turn-ins. Those between 16 and 30, turn in that gun – anonymous, no questions asked – gives you an opportunity to make that change … to get rid of that gun, to say I’m tired of it,” Pfleger said. The first 150 people of that age to turn in a working gun will get a $100 gift card, or a gift card for a pair of Adidas shoes. Pfleger is accepting all guns.
