The Queens South Gun Buyback Program
The Queens South Unit of the NYPD will host a Cash for Guns program on February 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Residents can surrender guns in exchange for a cash card, no questions asked. Guns must be brought to the drop-off site in a plastic bag, wrapped in paper, or placed in a shoe box. Anyone except active or retired law enforcement personnel and licensed gun dealers can surrender a gun. BB guns, Air Pistols, handguns, rifles and shotguns will be accepted. After the gun is screened by officers and determined to be operable, a bank card will be given.
Drop-off sites in Rockaway include the First Baptist Church, 15-10 Redfern Avenue in Far Rockaway and Macedonia Baptist Church, 330 Beach 67 Street in Arverne. For more information about the program you may call 311.
