The NYPD and the Office of Queens District Attorney Melinda Katz will host a gun buyback event from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 6 at First Baptist Church in East Elmhurst.
Participants can receive a $200 pre-paid gift card for turning in any operable handgun or assault rifle with no questions asked; and a $25 card for other rifles, shotguns and air guns.
Those bringing in an operable handgun or assault rife will receive an iPad while supplies last on a first-come, first served basis. The church is located at 100-10 Astoria Blvd., and social distancing guidelines will be in effect.
Current and retired members of law enforcement are not eligible.
Guns must be brought in a paper or plastic bag or a box. If arriving by car, the gun must be transported in the trunk. Cards will be given out once a gun is screened by a police officer. Participants can surrender as many guns as they like, but payment is limited to three for a maximum payout of $600.
The New York City Police Foundation also is a sponsor.
