BOSTON (AP) — Mayor Martin Walsh has launched a new gun buyback program to help combat violence in Boston.
Firearms are being accepted anonymously starting Monday at district police stations and designated sites. All guns are being accepted, with a $200 Visa gift card incentive given for working handguns.
People won’t be prosecuted for possessing an illegal handgun, but there won’t be amnesty for other crimes committed with that firearm. Guns not needed for evidence in criminal cases will be destroyed.
