TRENTON N.J. (CBS) — Essex County is hosting a state-led gun buyback event tomorrow, and Saturday.

Both days the program will run from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Essex County residents can turn in a maximum of three firearms of any type “no questions asked” and receive up to $250 per weapon.

The buyback program will take place at a total of six churches in five municipalities – Irvington, Montclair, Newark, Orange and East Orange.
