On Saturday, Cleveland police held their annual gun buyback program outside a former municipal building on Payne Avenue.
This year, police were offering $100 gas, Target or Dave’s Supermarket gift cards, tickets to see the Cleveland Cavaliers or Lake Erie Monsters and a chance to win $1,000 all for the community’s unwanted firearms.
But as tempting as that offer was, there was another offer on the table, so to speak.
That is, a group of gun owners and collectors stood nearby, offering would-be participants cash for guns. As they say about any transaction, “cash is king.”
