NBC Connecticut | Hartford Police Department held a gun buyback Saturday morning in an effort to get guns off the street and curb violence in the Capital City.
“The program is fully anonymous. You can come in, give no names, no idea, no questions asked, and you will get a hand receipt showing that you turned in a gun,” Sgt. Chris Mastroianni said.
The gun buyback has been taking place in Hartford for about seven years.
