Gun turn-in collects 33 unwanted weapons
Thirty-three guns were received during a Gun Turn In event hosted Saturday by Church of the Holy Spirit in Schaumburg.
Church pastor the Rev. John Dearhammer was inspired to hold the event by last December's school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut last December. His former parish, St. Gall Catholic Church in Chicago, also used to host such events.
Dearhammer said the event was intended to reduce the number of unwanted or unnecessary guns in the community. Donors received a $40 gift card for every gun turned in.
