White Plains offers firearm buyback program Saturday – The Journal News | LoHud.com

WHITE PLAINS – Turn those unwanted guns into cash cards when a firearm buyback program is held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at the White Plains Fire Department Headquarters.

The buyback is part of a statewide program being sponsored by state Attorney General Erik T. Schneiderman, who said it’s “a critical part of my office’s efforts to ensure that all New Yorkers are secure in their communities. By encouraging people to voluntarily turn in their firearms for compensation, we are removing potentially deadly unwanted firearms from places where they can be stolen or otherwise misused.”

Working and non-working guns can be turned in to law enforcement officers at the 219 Mamaroneck Ave. firehouse, no questions asked. The unloaded weapons must be transported to the dropoff site unloaded and in a plastic or paper bag or box. There is no limit on the number of firearms one person can turn in.

Those who turn in firearms will receive $25 for antique or non-working guns, $50 for rifles or shotguns, $75 for handguns and $100 for assault weapons. Payment will be in the form of debit cards.
