gun buy back
The assault rifle was an SKS .762 with a 30-round magazine.
Sgt. Lisa Cotto says a Norwalk resident anonymously donated $5,026 to fund the buyback, a symbolic amount to remember the 26 Newtown victims.
Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said Saturday that no piece of legislation could have prevented the massacre that left 20 children and eight adults dead in Newtown, Conn.
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.
A Brooklyn gun buyback conducted on Saturday netted 182 weapons. The count includes 58 semi-automatic handguns, 1 sawed-off shotgun, 2 assault rifles, and a variety of other firearms
