    The city of Worcester, Massachusetts is asking citizens to bring their weapons to the police department next weekend as part of the city's annual "Goods for Guns Buyback Program." In return for the guns, the city will offer gift certificates, and - a free flu shot.


    "City residents, or residents of any other community, may bring their unwanted weapons, unloaded and wrapped in a bag, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday to the Worcester Police headquarters in Lincoln Square, or from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Dec. 8 to the Worcester Division of Public Health, 25 Meade St."

    Since the program began in 2002, "Goods for Guns" has collected approximately 2,200 guns. Last year 40 guns were collected by the police department. Deputy Chief McGinn said guns that are turned in are destroyed.

    The program allows individuals to anonymously turn in "unwanted and unloaded" guns to the police department. In return, citizens are presented with a Wegman's gift certificate. The value of the gift depends on the type of gun. For example, a long rifle earns a $25 gift certificate; handguns earn a $50 gift certificate, and a semiautomatic weapon, a $75 gift certificate.

    This year, citizens of Worcester can receive a free flu shot for turning in a weapon. Also, individuals who bring guns directly from home to the police station will be granted amnesty if they are not properly licensed.

    McGinn has said, "Come one, come all. We're not asking any names or questions."

    The "Goods for Guns Program" is similar to buyback programs across the country:

    I'll keep my weapons, and they can keep their GC's and flu shots, thank you.

    Don't give the folks in Mass too much credit for what used to pass for brains, look who they've elected and are electing. Collective IQ of maybe 6.

    anyone who actually does that, I feel very sorry for... you need more than a flu shot to fix your mental disorder, holy camoly man.

    A freakin' flu shot....

    wasn't there some other similar scheme where they would give $100 for each gun? What freakin' gun is worth a hundred bucks? most of mine average $500 to $2000, that's a great investment. idiocy knows no limits I guess

    I'm surprised they even used the word Shot. I would have thought they would have used more politically correct terminology like you will get $75. in government handouts and a Free Kool-Aids injection.:confused::rolleyes::bleh::eek::bleh::confused:
