It was the fifth time the city of Buffalo has held a "No Questions Asked" Gun BuyBack program to get some guns off the street.
Mayor Byron Brown says the Assembly of Christian Churches reported that someone turned in a Glock -- the type of gun that police officers use."It was an unlicensed gun, and it was very good to be able to get a powerful gun like that, fully working, off the streets of this community," Brown told WBEN on Saturday afternoon
People who turned in guns got prepaid bank cards in amounts ranging from $10 to $100.
The $100 bank cards are reserved for assault weapons. Handguns got $75, while rifles and shotguns were worth $50.
Non-working or antique guns coulc be turned in for a $10 card.
"Nobody, by itself, believes that this activity is going to stop crime, but they that as one small piece of much larger strategy, this can be helpful," Brown says.
