Milwaukee pastors want city to start gun "buyback" program

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Saying they're "fed up" about an increase in shootings, a group of pastors in Milwaukee has asked the city to start a gun buyback program. 

Those with unwanted weapons could turn them in, and get $100 gift card for a handgun and $200 for an assault weapon. 

The pastors held a news conference about the idea Monday, after meeting with city officials about it recently. 

The pastors have asked the city to budget $50,000 next year for a one-time buyback, in which those returning guns could stay anonymous. 

A spokesman for Mayor Tom Barrett says the mayor and Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn both favor a buyback -- but they'd have to figure out where the money would come from.
