PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia is holding yet another gun buyback event on Saturday.

The event, co-hosted by Uplift Solutions, will be held at the Myers Recreation Center at 5803 Kingsessing Avenue in Philadelphia. Participants will receive $100 gift cards in return for the weapons, and there is a limit of two gift cards per person.

This is the fourth gun buyback in ten months hosted by Sen. Anthony H. Williams, and more than 400 guns have reportedly been removed from the streets.

Starter pistols, flares and air guns will not be accepted.
