A Better Mid-South: Guns for gas or groceries

A Better Mid-South: Guns for gas or groceries

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Editorial by Tracey Rogers, Vice President and General Manager of WMC Action News 5:

If we save one life, we have made a difference.

That's the slogan for this year's Guns for Gas or Groceries campaign.

If you aren't familiar with this program, you can exchange a gun for a Kroger or Mapco gift card to buy gas or groceries.

This year's event will be held this Saturday, October 1st starting at 10 a.m. at the Hickory Ridge Mall Incredible Pizza.

This is a drive through--you can drive in, hand the "unloaded" gun over to a Memphis Police Officer, get a gift card, no questions asked.

The limit is 3 guns per person.

WMC Action News 5 is proud to be a sponsor of Guns for Gas or Groceries.

If you have questions about the campaign, you can email me at abettermidsouth@wmctv.com and I'll post the information on my Facebook page, A Better Mid-South.
