SAN FRANCISCO — Police took 271 guns off the street during a gun buyback event Saturday that netted an arsenal including a bazooka, cannon ball and assault rifles.
“We got everything that you can name that could destroy a whole universe, and we get rid of them within hours," said Rudy Corpuz Jr. with United Playaz, a community group that helped organize the buyback with police.
There were no questions asked. People were given $100 for a handgun and $200 for assault weapons, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
The weapons will be destroyed.
