If you’ve got some clothes you don’t need anymore, you can give them to Goodwill or the Salvation Army. If you have an old car, you can call various organizations to take it away. And if you’re in Chicago and have a gun that’s burning a hole in your pocket, you can get rid of it on Saturday, no questions asked.
The city government has a great fondness for gun turn-in events. It’s done six of them in the past six years, collecting more than 23,000 weapons.
