(Landover, MD) — Prince George’s County police are putting in place a gun buyback program, inviting anyone with a gun to drop it off, no questions asked. In exchange, you will receive a 100-dollar general gift card. The police department’s “Gift Card for Guns” program takes place today at the Prince George’s County Police Services Complex on Barlowe Road in Landover starting at 10am. A police spokeswoman says the gun buy backs are anonymous. Just turn in your weapon and pick up your gift card. Officials say a recent study shows in a 20-year span, violent crime incidents countywide jumped by more than two-thousand. They also point to crime statistics showing that in 2007, more than 400 crimes in the county involved guns.
