The Miami Police Department is asking residents to turn in their weapons in return for Miami Heat tickets and gift cards.

The gun buyback program is similar to those seen across the country.  Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado hopes that his buyback will prevent gun violence in the area.

"What we're doing here, we're beating the odds," Regalado said. "If one incident is avoided, it's worth it."

buyback was held today at Jordan Grove Baptist Church where 50 weapons (mostly hunting rifles and small caliber handguns) were handed over in the first hour.

Residents were given a choice of $25 or $50 gift certificates to Walmart or Winn-Dixie -- or 300-level Miami Heat tickets!  Any person who returned an assault rifle was given two 100-level tickets to a game this March.

The Miami Herald reports that residents will have two more chances to turn in their weapons for supermarket gift cards and Miami Heat basketball tickets:

Jan. 26, from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at St. John Baptist Church and Feb. 2 at San Juan Bosco Church.

(OP NOTE: Here comes the brainwash part...)

Mayor Regalado says that hosting the buybacks at churches, with pastors overseeing the event, reassures residents that they won't get in trouble for possessing the weapons they're returning.

REST OF IT

If anyone is stupid enough to take this offer, then it is probably wise to have them disarmed, though probably someone may be unloading stolen goods, no questions asked and a few trinkets thrown in in the bargain

They get the worst, small caliber, POS guns nobody wants .....

....for a level 300 ticket......

yeah, none reparable junk guns go for that price

If you turn in more than 3 "assault" weapons Dwayne Wade and Lebron James will come to your house and play a pick up game in your driveway with friends.

If these sheep christians are  so stupid  as to turn in their guns, they  deserve to get what they  will get  if TSHTF, just like the stupid jews did in Germany. Also, these people don't need Guns anyway, they wouldn't have the guts to shoot anyone anyway.

The same thing happened, here in Phoenix, Az. Some of the Churches were giving Walmart Gift Cards to sheep christians for turning in their guns. Later on I found out these churches were selling the guns to dealers.
