It was that time of year again when L.A. trades Ralph’s gift cards in exchange for residents’ high-powered arsenals. Yesterday, over 2,000 guns were turned in through two drive-in collections system, including 75 assault rifles, which fetch $200 in groceries compared to the $100 offered for rifles, handguns, and shotguns. At least no one turned in any rocket launchers this time around**. [NBC]

** Oops, we were wrong, turns out there were two turned in.
