Trenton Gun Buyback Nets More than 2,500 Weapons

Mercer County officials say more than 2,500 weapons were turned in for cash during a two-day gun buyback program in the state’s capital.

The Trenton gun buyback surpassed one in Camden in December that netted more than 1,100 weapons.

Mercer County residents received $25 to $250 for each firearm depending on type, condition and legality.

About $100,000 was budgeted but because of the huge turnout, the amount spent is expected to be well over double that. Some participants were given vouchers after money ran out Saturday.

A final count of weapons collected will be released by the attorney general’s office Tuesday.
