Chicago police will pay you for unwanted guns ‘no questions asked’


The Chicago Police Department is hosting a “no questions asked” Gun Turn In event on Saturday at Edgewater.

From 10 to 14 the agents will be at the church of Sant’Ita to collect unwanted or unused weapons. Interested residents will receive a $100 prepaid gift card for each gun and $10 for BB guns, air guns, and replica pistols.

No one at this event will ask you where or how you got your weapons as long as you turn them in. Prepaid Visa cards can be used in most shops to pay for gas, groceries and utility bills.

There is no limit to the number of guns you can submit, all of them will be accepted.


The guns will be destroyed after the event. If you fail to make it to the event, weapons can be turned in to any police station. However, to redeem the gift card the guns must be turned over Saturday between 10am and 2pm at St. Ita’s Church located at 5500 N. Broadway St.

Chicago Police can also safely dispose of any ammunition and weapon parts.
