City leaders and LAPD Gun experts will also be available to answer questions about the event and about the guns.

Individuals may surrender guns anonymously at any of the two Gun Buyback locations. The Public is reminded that when bringing a firearm to a location, please leave the unloaded gun(s) in a locked container or stored in a vehicle trunk. The Gun Buyback staff will provide direction to individuals surrendering guns after discussing their intent to surrender a weapon. Those interested in receiving a Ralph’s gift card, may qualify for a $100 card for handguns, shotguns, and rifles and $200 for assault weapons as classified in the state of California.
