HAYWARD, Calif. — A firearm laying around at home is one more gun that could be misused, so police gave an extra incentive for people to turn in their guns Saturday.
A $50 bill with President Grant's smiling face was given in exchange for each surrendered firearm. No questions were asked, and no fingerprints taken as cars rolled into the Costco Business Center parking lot on A Street in Hayward from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
