101 Pct. Urges Community To Turn In Guns


During Wednesday's 101 Precinct Community Council meeting Captain Matthew Hanrahan, the executive officer of the Precinct, urged residents to turn in legal or illegal guns during Queens Borough South's Gun Buy Back Program this Saturday. "People can come in … drop the guns off and we can get some guns off the streets and prevent crimes from happening, prevent children from getting hurt and so forth," said Hanrahan. Drop-off sites in Rockaway, which will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., are the First Baptist Church at 15-10 Redfern Avenue in Far Rockaway and the Macedonia Baptist Church at 330 Beach 67 Street in Arverne. People handing in guns will receive a $200 bank card, no questions asked.
