The San Diego County Sheriff's Department is partnering with the City of Vista, the San Diego County District Attorney's Office and the North Coastal Prevention Coalition to host a gun buyback exchange.
The exchange will take place Sunday, July 11 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Vista Traffic Court Parking Lot located at 325 S Melrose Drive.
People can turn in unwanted guns and receive a gift card or a skateboard. People will receive a $100 gift card for turning in handguns, shot guns and rifles, and a $200 gift card for assault weapons.
SDSO said this is a "no questions asked" event and people can remain anonymous. The unloaded firearms are to be placed in the trunk of your car and a deputy will help provide further instructions.
SDSO requires the firearms to be in working order. All weapons collected will be destroyed.
