Just last week, Niagara Falls hosted a gun buyback program that allowed people to bring in guns in exchange for gift cards. Some handguns were exchanged for iPads and other incentives as well. This may be a short term solution to get some of the guns off the street before they make it into criminals hands. Contact the state attorney general or the mayor of Niagara Falls office for more information.
