The fourth annual gun buyback program was held Saturday at six locations throughout Los Angeles. More than 600 weapons were turned in during just the first hour, according to LAPD Lt. Andy Neiman.

In exchange, they receive a Ralph’s or Visa per-paid card for varying amounts depending on the gun type — up to $200 for assault weapons and up to $100 for handguns, rifles and shotguns.

Since the program was launched, over 6,200 guns have been taken off the street and gun violence has been reduced 20 percent, Beck said.
