Police say 354 guns including an Uzi submachine gun and four AK-47-style assault rifles were turned in during a one-day gun buyback program in the Bronx.

The guns were brought into three churches on Saturday in exchange for bank cards worth up to $600.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said turning in guns prevents the weapons from getting into the hands of criminals.
