FLAGSTAFF, AZ (AP) -

An effort to raise money for a gun buyback program in Tucson is prompting questions about a change in state law.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that Councilman Steve Kozachik is raising $5,000 so Tucsonans may have a way to dispose of unwanted firearms while making money in the process.

He says the rules would be simple: Voluntarily bring in your gun and trade it for a Safeway gift card.

Kozachik plans to work with the Tucson Police Department so the guns will be disposed of properly.

National Rifle Association board member Todd Rathner says any buyback program would be meaningless since the police department would be required to return or resell the weapons under a change in state law.

However, City Attorney Mike Rankin believes the law doesn't apply to guns voluntarily surrendered by their owners.
