FREEHOLD – The latest Guns For Cash program took in 120 weapons exchanged for cash as part of a one-day program in Asbury Park on Saturday, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.
The Guns For Cash program accepted 120 firearms this past Saturday with a payout of $7,025. The final inventory of firearms comprised two assault weapons, 49 rifles and shotguns, and 48 handguns, including 14 semi-automatic handguns, and other items.
The program allows anyone to anonymously surrender a weapon without fear of having to answer questions about their identity or how they came into possession of a weapon. Once the weapon is surrendered, the gun is checked against a national database to determine if it is stolen. If the weapon is identified not stolen it is then slated for destruction.
