Middlesex Gun Buyback Results

State officials say more than 1,800 weapons were collected during a gun buyback program in Middlesex County last weekend.

Guns

Acting Attorney General John Hoffman and acting county Prosecutor Andrew Carey say the weapons collected included more than 800 handguns, 352 rifles, 344 shotguns and 60 assault weapons. The two-day program was conducted at three churches in New Brunswick, Perth Amboy and Old Bridge.

The buyback also yielded 170 illegal guns — weapons that are unlawful to own because they feature excessively high ammunition capacities or have been illegally modified.

Hoffman says the buyback program netted 1,844 weapons overall. That means nearly 16,000 firearms have now been collected in the 10 buyback events the state has staged in recent months.
