ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Hundreds of guns, including assault rifles, are off the streets in Albuquerque after another buyback event.
Bernalillo County sheriff's deputies say they took in two assault rifles, 175 handguns and 149 long-guns Saturday at their last buyback event.
The buyback programs began after the Sandy Hook massacre that left 26 people dead, many were children.
In exchange, the county handed out $40,000 worth of gift cards.
Gun enthusiasts were also at Saturday's event holding posters and saying the buyback is only taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.
