'Gifts for guns' program makes SoCal safer

COMPTON, Calif. Participants received $100 holiday gift cards to use at local retailers and grocery stores in exchange for their guns.

Individuals turning in assault rifles received $200 gift cards and those turning in poor quality guns walked away with $50 cards.

The life saving exchange program ends when the guns are destroyed at sheriff's headquarters.
