Famed bounty hunter offers a trade – turn in your gun, get a turkey

Famed bounty hunter Leonard Padilla and the staff of Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds will hold an open event Wednesday, Dec. 12, in front of their office at 816 H Street to promote their Holiday “Guns For Turkeys” Campaign….Turn in a gun, get a turkey.

With no questions asked, gun owners who turn in their registered or unregistered guns to Leonard Padilla Bail Bonds will receive a Raley’s turkey gift card. This campaign will run through December 20th, 2012.

The event, which began November 15th, will include a pen full of live turkeys, some ready-for-the-oven gobblers and a display of antique rifles and pistols. In a pre-Christmas appearance, (in his work uniform), Santa himself will be passing out candy, with his assistant (a guy who drew the short straw who’ll be in a turkey costume).

“Getting unlicensed, unregistered, and illegal guns off the streets should be a major priority in Sacramento, since only a quarter of gun related crimes that are committed are done so with legal and registered weapons," Padilla said. "This is a way for us to do our part in the prevention of gun violence”
