The Baltimore City Police Department kicked off their ‘Gun Buyback’ Program at Shake and Bake on Pennsylvania Avenue Monday.

The department’s accepting any firearm or high-capacity magazine. People interested can walk away with $25 for high-capacity magazines, $100 for revolvers, pump and bolt action weapons, $200 for semi-automatic weapons and $500 for full-auto weapons.

According to Fox Baltimore, police took in 538 guns by 5:30 Monday evening.

The Mayor and Police Commissioner say the program is another tool in the fight against violent crime. But, some research shows gun buyback programs are not effective in reducing violent crime in urban settings.

You can turn in your guns at these locations on these days:

December 19th

McElderry Park Community Center

611 N. Montford Ave.

Noon-8 PM
