Gun Buy Back In Hartford Saturday

(CBS Connecticut)— Today at Pope Park Arroyo Center in Hartford authorities will be giving out gift cards in exchange for guns.

Handguns can be swapped for a $200 gift card while shotguns and rifles can be traded in for a $50 gift card.  Police officials have said in the past that they offer more for handguns because those are the weapons typically used in shootings.

Saturday’s buy back is the second of a trio of buy backs in Hartford that aim to get unwanted guns off the streets.

The buy back will be going on from 10:00 am through 3:00 pm at 30 Pope Park Dr. Hartford, CT 06106.
