Bring a functioning firearm and receive a laptop.
That’s the buy-back deal being offered this Saturday at the Downtown Cultural Arts Center, where computer training nonprofit Digit All Systems will be handing out 150 working laptops to anyone who brings in a working firearm for trade.
Computers for Guns takes place July 13 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. More information and the address here.
