Local church exchanges guns for gift cards


CHARLOTTE, N.C. - On Saturday, a local church will continue exchanging guns for gift cards, but the event only lasts until noon.

If you drop off a handgun at New Life Fellowship in north Charlotte, you will get a $50 gift card and up to a $100 gift card for assault rifles.

Reverence John Kee told Eyewitness News that he has seen more support this year than ever, and he thinks it is because of the tragedy in Connecticut.

All guns collected will be turned over to the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police.
