BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) — Here in New York, Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes is doing his best to get guns off our streets. He hosted two gun buyback programs at local Brooklyn churches Saturday.

HYNES GUN BYBACK PROGRAM

One-hundred-and-thirty-four weapons were turned in, including 80 revolvers, 31 semi-automatic pistols and three shotguns. This program was started in 2008 and has been extremely successful. More than 8,000 illegal guns have been turned in, to date.
