Chicago Police are asking people to trade in their guns in exchange for gift cards during their annual gun turn-in event Saturday.

"This summer initiative will help save lives by removing thousands of illegal guns from our streets and is an opportunity for citizens to turn-in firearms, B-B guns, and replica weapons in exchange for gift cards, with no questions asked," according to the Chicago Gun Turn-In 2012 website. This year's initiative has been dubbed "Don't Kill a Dream, Save a Life."

Anyone who turns in a gun will receive a $100 gift card, the website said. BB Guns and replica guns are worth a $10.
