Please help Evanston and Chicago land get rid of guns read this provided by the Evanston Now

Evanston police will hold a gun buyback program on Saturday, Dec. 15, at Christ Temple Missionary Baptist Church, 1711 Simpson St.

Guns brought to the buyback must be unloaded, in operational condition and participants must have proof of Evanston residency. Examples of proof of residency include a piece of mail, Evanston Public Library card, student ID or a government-issued ID.

This is an amnesty-based buyback program and officials say no police enforcement action will be taken as a result of someone turning in a firearm.

The program was announced earlier this fall in the wake of the shooting death of 14-year-old Dajae Coleman.
