Gun buyback scheduled

NYPD will give bank cards to people who bring their guns to three Bronx churches on Saturday, June 4.

$200 bank cards will be given in exchange for working handguns, and $20 will be given to those who turn in an operable rifle or shotgun. NYPD officials say no questions will be asked of those who bring in their weapons.

Grace Temple at 2401 Marion Ave, Bronx Pentecostal at 1755 Watson Ave and Our Lady of Grace at 3985 Bronxwood Ave are the staging areas for this year’s annual gun buyback day, which will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., with the intention of getting as many guns off the streets as possible

Last year nearly 1,000 guns were given over to NYPD on buyback day.
