According to the Buffalo News, The City Of Buffalo is offering a "Gun Buyback Program" aimed at attempting to urge you to turn in any guns you might have. The incentive is a payoff...in the form of a Pre-Paid Credit Card! Depending on the type of handgun, you could receive anywhere from $10 - $100.00. The goal of the program is to ultimately create such an impact with people turning in guns that it rids the streets of Buffalo of all illegal guns.

The Buffalo News article this morning announcing the program, states that Police have seized 500 guns this year so far...most of them illegal, with about 325 of then being handguns.

Do you think the program is and has been effective in the past...and has it or will it get guns off the streets and lessen crime? (Please Comment Below....Thank You)

Here's the list of local churches where you can turn in your guns in exchange for a Pre-Paid Credit card ranging anywhere from $10 - $100, depending on the type of gun.
