Gun Buyback Program a Success

gun buybackNORTHAMPTON, Mass (WGGB) — Organizers of the Valley Gun BuyBack this weekend say it was a success.

The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office says they collected a total of 301 guns.

That’s 160 in Greenfield and 141 in Northampton.  Police say they hope that the program will keep weapons out of homes.

This was the event’s first year and the DA’s office says the number of guns collected exceeded expectations.

People who turned in a gun received a $50 gift card and two gift cards for turning in an assault weapon.
