STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Stamford Police say they’ll be handing out gift cards in exchange for guns at a buy back event next month.

The Hearst Connecticut Media Group reports (http://bit.ly/1bXFp2e ) that police also will accept other dangerous weapons and violent video games.

The department says it will exchange gift cards ranging from $50 to $150 on Dec. 14. The value of the gift card will vary depending on the type of firearm turned in.

Police say they will also accept voluntary submissions of other dangerous weapons, such as knives, swords and spears and violent video games, movies and computer software.

Firearms turned in must be unloaded.
