HARLEM — Get cash for guns this weekend, no questions asked.
The Manhattan District Attorney's office announced a gun buyback program this Saturday at Abyssinian Baptist Church, at 132 W. 138th St. from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The buyback is part of a new six-week anti-violence initiative to rid the streets of guns, held in partnership with the NYPD and non-profits Harlem Mothers S.A.V.E. and One Hundred Black Men of New York, the DA's office said.
Officials held their first gun buyback event in Harlem at Salem United Methodist Church last month when 81 guns were surrendered, the DA's office said. Officials are hoping to replicate the success.
People who bring working handguns or assault rifles to the event will receive a $200 prepaid giftcard with no questions asked, according to the DA's office. Those turning in rifles, shotguns or air guns will receive a $25 card, the DA's office said.
All guns must arrive in a box or a plastic or paper bag. Weapons transported by car should be locked in the trunk.
Police officers will screen each gun to determine if it's operable. Participants are encouraged to surrender multiple guns, but they will only receive cash cards for the first three, according to the DA's office.
Active or retired law enforcement officers and licensed gun dealers are not eligible to participate in the program, officials said.
