Blue Island police shut down a "Turn in Your Gun Day" Saturday organized by a mayoral hopeful. Tommy Brown, 38, offered $100 for every gun turned in from 9 a.m. to noon at the Redemption Theater, 12952 S. Western Ave. However, Blue Island Police Chief Douglas Hoglund shut down the event just 30 minutes after it began. Hoglund said the building didn`t have a business license and no one authorized by a law enforcement agency was there to take possession of the traded-in guns.
