A coalition of Chester County groups will host a "Gun Buy Back" day Saturday at the Coatesville Memorial Community Center.
The event is a "no-hassle, no-questions-asked, no-arrests-made" opportunity to turn in firearms, organizers say.
Participants will receive a $100 gift card per gun and will be paid for a maximum of two guns, receiving a total maximum payment of $200 in gift cards. Additional guns may be turned in, but no payment will be received.
The event is an effort to combat gun-related violence in the community, said Chaya Scott, director of the Coatesville Youth Initiative which has a gun buy back program as part of their mission.
