St. Sabina Church targets violence with gun buying event

Eighty one guns were turned in today at St. Sabina Church. Father Pfleger says he is expecting three more guns to be turned in by Monday.

The church hosted a Gun-Buy-Back program today from 10a.m. to 2p.m. “Those who brought in a gun received a $100. gift card or a pair of Adidas gym shoes,” Pfleger said.

The people who choose the gym shoes will have to come back in a week to pick them up. But if you decided on the gift card, they were distributed today.

Father Pfleger added, “If you are between 16-years-old and 30-years-old and have a gun you would like to turn-in, there are still gift cards left and the church will still be accepting guns over the next few days.”

St. Sabina Church is located at 1210 W 78th Place in Chicago.
