Boston Gun Buyback Day Nets 43

Boston's one-day gun buyback event netted 43 guns.

In a press release issued Sunday morning, Boston police said the city had six drop-off locations Saturday. The program offered city residents a $100 Target gift certificate funded by Massachusetts General Hospital in exchange for surrendering a handgun.

The event took place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

In 2017, the program helped collect 64 firearms in one day.
