NYPD to hold first gun buyback of 2012 in BK

The NYPD has announced that it's holding the first gun buyback of 2012 in Brooklyn this weekend.

The program gives people a chance to exchange handguns for a $200 bank card; no questions asked. Officials say the effort has taken 8,000 guns off the streets since it began.

You can turn in your weapons Saturday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the Bedford Presbyterian Church at 1200 Dean St.
