Baltimore City Police kicks off their gun buyback program Monday.

The department’s accepting any firearm or high-capacity magazine. People interested can walk away with $25 for high-capacity magazines, $100 for revolvers, pump and bolt action weapons, $200 for semi-automatic weapons and $500 for full-auto weapons.

The Mayor and Police Commissioner say the program is another tool in the fight against violent crime. But, some research shows gun buyback programs are not effective in reducing violent crime in urban settings.

You can turn in your guns at these locations on these days:
