BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo Mayor Byron Brown announced the city's 6th gun buyback program on Tuesday.
According to city officials, residents have turned in nearly 3,700 guns over the past five gun buyback programs.
"I recognize that this single Gun BuyBack effort will not eliminate the illegal weapons on our city streets," said Mayor Brown. "We may never know how many crimes we've prevented as a result of past Gun BuyBack events, but we do know there won't be a tragic shooting in Buffalo tied to the guns we collected."

- True Bethel Baptist Church, 907 East Ferry Street
