Eugenio Negro's comic about a scheduled gun buyback in San Jose in which police will give Target gift cards for working firearms. The event is Saturday 14 December from 9AM to 1PM and is open to south bay residents.

The San Jose Police Department will be buying firearms from the public, no questions asked, on Saturday 14 December from 900AM to 1300PM at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 2012 E. San Antonio Ave in San Jose.

Working handguns, rifles and shotguns will fetch a $100 Target gift card, assault rifles a $200 gift card. The event is open to residents of all surrounding cities and intends to both take weapons from gang members without questioning and to empty homes of unused weapons that could be stolen.

Here is San Jose comic artist Eugenio Negro's satirical comic about attitudes toward technology and consumerism as regards the buyback's use of Target gift cards.
