Police say a Tennessee man has checked luggage containing a loaded, defaced rifle at New York’s Kennedy International Airport.
Operable handguns and assault rifles will net $200 and rifles and shotguns will earn $20 each. The event was scheduled to run from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Sgt. Lisa Cotto says a Norwalk resident anonymously donated $5,026 to fund the buyback, a symbolic amount to remember the 26 Newtown victims.
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.
