Mr. Brown said all guns are acceptable and those turning in firearms will be paid in debit cards. Mr. Brown announced the news at the close of his radio program this afternoon on WVOX Radio. Details will be forthcoming.
In previous New York Attorney General Gun Buybacks, the process worked this way:
During the buyback program, people will be paid with debit cards when they turn in a gun to law enforcement officers. Each gun turned in will be screened before any money is given out. Guns must be transported to their drop-off site unloaded and in plastic or paper bags or boxes.
Antique and nonworking firearms will net $25. People will be paid $50 for rifles and shotguns and $75 for handguns. Those turning in assault weapons will receive $100. Licensed gun dealers and active or retired law enforcement officers are not eligible for the program.
Attorney General of New York, Eric Schneiderman in announcing the New York State gun buy back program previously said:
“By encouraging gun owners to turn in their weapons through our cash-for-guns program, we’re removing deadly firearms from locations where they can be stolen or otherwise misused, keeping them out of the wrong hands.”
