Watervliet hosting gun buyback event next week

Attorney General Letitia James is sponsoring a gun buyback program in Watervliet next week.

People can bring an unloaded weapon to the Watervliet Dome on Second Avenue on Saturday, Oct. 9. In return, you get a gift card worth between $25 and $250 depending on the type of weapon you turn in.

You can bring as many weapons as you want. They should be wrapped in a paper bag, a plastic bag, or a box.
