PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Dozens of guns are now off the streets of Philadelphia after a gun buyback took place Saturday in North Philadelphia.

The event was held at Deliverance Church located at 21st Street and Lehigh Avenue.

Those who turned in guns received a $100 ShopRite gift card, no questions asked.

The goal of the program was to reduce the number of illegal guns and violence in the city.
