Seattle’s gun buyback event: The buyback is today starting at 9 a.m. and lasting until 3 p.m. in a downtown Seattle parking lot. If you turn in a gun — including hand guns, shotguns and rifles — you’re eligible for a gift certificate up to $100. You can get a certificate up to $200, too. For an assault rifle, of course.
