Local Church Holds Guns For Gift Cards Drive

CHARLOTTE, NC — People across Charlotte are turning in their guns for gift cards at The New Life City of Praise and the Char-Meck NAACP Guns For Gift Cards Drive.

Identities of people turning in their guns are kept confidential. Pastor John Kee says this year’s drive is especially important due to the high homicide rate throughout the city.

Kee started the Guns For Gift Cards Drive, now in its fifth year, because of gun violence in his own neighborhood.
