Gift cards for guns
When you want to get creative for the sake of safety, you can’t beat this idea:
According to this news, the Prince George’s County “is teaming up with the NAACP in the Gift Cards for Guns program in an attempt to reduce gun-related crimes. The program provides an incentive for those who are willing to anonymously turn in their weapons for Visa gift cards.”
I think that this is a splendid idea, and it will encourage the lesser use of guns for whatever reasons you can think of.
So what are the police going to do with the guns? According to the news, they are going to destroy them. Good idea!
However, it will be strange if they don’t curb the selling of guns because it will be back to square one anyway.
Regardless, I think that this is a good example of how gift cards can be used creatively.
