Today only, Southwest Philadelphia residents can participate in a gun buy-back program.


    Organized by State Sen. Anthony Williams, State Rep. Kenyatta Johnson, Power 99 FM, University of Pennsylvania and the Peace Not Guns Organization, the Turn in Your Guns campaign is designed to get firearms off the street with the help of the Southwest Community Advisory Group and Southwest Detectives.

    Gun owners can turn in their guns today from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., no questions asked, and receive a $100 Walmart giftcard in exchange.
