On Saturday, the NYPD collected illegal, working guns at six Brooklyn churches in hopes of making the streets safer. The Brooklyn DA's office was offering a $200 cash card per weapon (limit of three), and DA Charles Hynes said, "I think we're going to run out of money today, that's my hope. And if we do, then I'm going to ask the police commissioner to do it again." NY1 reported they took in nearly 700 weapons, including 12 assault weapons. Though some people reported complained about how long the exchange took (cops had to check the weapons), the NY Times says "most praised the program."
