A total of 25 churches will open their doors Saturday to individuals who voluntarily bring in guns or other firearms.
Austin’s Mandell United Methodist Church, 5000 W. Congress Parkway, is listed as one of the churches. A $100 gift card in exchange for firearms will be given out with no questions asked. The gift cards, issued by Chase Bank from a $10,000 donation from Jewel Osco, can be used at most stores, according to the Chicago Police. Individuals looking to turn in a gun at one of the locations can call the Chicago Police at 911. Turn-ins will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
