The Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office and the NYPD held a gun buyback event on Saturday in Bed-Stuy in an effort to get more guns off the streets.
From handguns to rifles and shotguns, a total of 66 guns were collected at the Emmanuel Baptist Church. In exchange, those who turned in guns received gift cards or an iPad.
“This event was a big success, lots of people came out and the NYPD and DA’s office plans to host more in the future,” says Eric Gonzalez, Brooklyn’s district attorney.
