JSO holds gun buyback in Arlington
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Police took guns off the streets of Jacksonville Saturday as part of their gun buyback event.
Residents turned in their guns -- no questions asked -- to officers at Arlington Baptist Church.
Each received $50 per gun that was turned in.
The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says one of the purposes of the event is to provide a secure outlet for a citizen to get rid of any unwanted firearms.
The gun bounty program has been in existence since 2006.
