   EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - Authorities say an East St. Louis weekend gun exchange rounded up 130 guns.

   Saturday's event allowed the first 100 people to get $100 grocery store gift cards. All 100 of the gift cards were gone about an hour after the event started.

   Officials say the guns were allowed to be turned in with no questions asked.

   St. Clair County Richard Watson says the event was a success. He says that people who came in said the money would help with Thanksgiving dinners. He says the guns will be destroyed. An event last year took in seven guns.

   According to St. Clair County State's Attorney Brendan Kelly, the gift card money came from cash seized during drug raids.

   The guns turned in included long shot guns and rifles with scopes.
