Get gift cards for guns now through Christmas.
The popular initiative to get more guns off the streets returns for another holiday season: Drop off any working handgun that is not on a permit at Victory Christian Church at 118 Quail Street and you 'll receive a One Hundred and Fifty Dollar Crossgates Gift Card, no questions asked. Proponents say it's a great way to make the city a little safer while pocketing a little extra cash for Christmas.
Last year over thirty hand guns were turned in: the gift cards can be redeemed at any store in Crossgates Mall. Ten guns have been already turned in.
