The most recent gun buyback was held in Passaic County last weekend, where 853 weapons were collected.
New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly touted new technology to detect illegal guns on “Face the Nation” Sunday, while noting that handguns – not assault weapons – are responsible for most of the homicides and non-fatal shootings in New York City.
The latest Gallup Poll on guns says that 47 percent of Americans now have guns, more than any time since 1993, and women are buying in increasing numbers.
The NYPD announced the results of the first gun buyback of 2012 on Saturday; 108 weapons were turned in at the Bedford Central Presbyterian Church in Crown Heights.
