Those who turn in handguns and assault rifles will receive $200, those who turn in rifles will receive $100 and those who hand in high-capacity magazines and clips will receive $20. 


The church says the money for the buyback program was donated by a businessman who wants to help take guns off the streets. The program is only for people 25 years and younger.

The gun buyback will be offered Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
