ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – In an effort to curb gun violence in Albany, a local church is hosting a gun buyback program June 19.

Victory Church on Quail Street will be hosting the event from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. People can turn in illegal handguns in exchange for a Visa gift card – no questions asked.

Pastor Charlie Muller is hoping this event will help reduce gun violence in the area.
