The police department is scheduled to hold the event on Oct. 28, at its substation on Armistice Boulevard.

Pawtucket residents can bring in any kind of working firearm and exchange it, no questions asked, for a gift card.

They’ll give a $50 card for a rifle or shotgun and $100 for a pistol or revolver.

Guns considered assault rifles, semi-automatic weapons, detachable magazine weapons and military style shoulder fired long guns will receive a $200 gift card.

The city will also accept non-working guns, but will not trade them for a gift card.

Mayor Donald Grebien says it will help reduce gun violence in the community.

....the right to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.

They have smartened up....in the good ole days I could get rid of any of the rusted out junk that people would give me to get rid of.
As long as it had a trigger and a barrell I could get $50 each.

Considering that RI considers an Air Rifle to be a firearm, I'm willing to go by an M4 style bb gun: https://www.amazon.com/Crosman-M4-177-T ... =M4+bb+gun and profit $140 :D
Nope, I don't live in Pawtucket

Grab your C&R and work the lines, could probably score some good deals.

I've got about 10 stripped lowers I'd turn in for $200 a piece.
