The latest gun buyback program in the City of Newburgh has been set for Saturday, June 22 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The program is designed to allow people to safely surrender guns and receive a Walmart gift card of up to $150 depending upon the type of gun surrendered.
Those turning in an operable assault weapon will receive a $150 gift card. Those surrendering operable handguns, or modified rifles or shotguns, will receive gift cards of $100. Those surrendering rifles, shotguns, antique or non-working firearms will receive $25 gift cards.
Guns must be unloaded and brought in a plastic or paper bag. Guns being transported in a car must be unloaded and in the trunk. There is no limit to the number of weapons that may be surrendered.
Active or retired law enforcement officers or licensed gun dealers are not eligible to participate in the program.
No identification is required to turn in a weapon and no questions will be asked.
