The city of Hoboken will be hosting a gun buyback program to try to get weapons off the street.
The program will take place on June 22 at Hoboken police headquarters from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
“We understand that Hoboken, compared to other cities, is not known for gun violence. But even one shooting death in our city is one too many, and if this buyback can prevent even a single instance of gun violence, it is well worth it,” Mayor Ravi Bhalla wrote in a statement.
The amount received for each gun will vary depending on what type of firearm is turned in.
  • Inoperable: $40 each
  • Rifle/Shotgun: $200 each
  • Handgun (semi-automatic/revolver): $250 each
  • Assault Weapon/Illegal: $350 each
  • BB guns are excluded from the buyback
Participants are asked to register in advance. All firearms must be listed on the registration form. Registrants do not need to provide identification and can remain anonymous.
