Amicone Press Release Amnesty Program Takes 900 Guns out of Circulation in Yonkers Yonkers, N.Y. August 31, 2006)-- One of the most successful gun buy back programs in the country came to an end earlier this week after nearly 900 firearms were collected by the Yonkers Police Department through a month-long Gun Amnesty Program offered by Mayor Phil Amicone. The anonymous, no questions asked program offered cash in return for guns—$200 per handgun, $100 per long gun—and gave city residents an easy way to get dangerous weapons out of their houses and off the streets. “This is a small but significant victory in our continuing battle to get illegal guns off our streets,” said Amicone who has been a vocal leader in a national effort to combat the flow of illegal weapons into America’s cities. “By no means is our work finished, but we can take some measure of satisfaction in knowing that there are almost 900 guns that will never be used in crimes against our citizens.” The number of firearms collected totaled 890, of which 596 were handguns and 296 were shotguns or rifles. The city spent $147,700 on the program. Amicone paid credit to State Senator Nick Spano who contributed a $25,000 grant to offset city expenses. “Senator Spano, as he always does, came through with much needed funding for an important public safety initiative here in Yonkers. I want to thank him, and all of the police offers, Parks Department employees and Yonkers residents who participated in this worthwhile effort.” Results of the program were announced at a City Hall press conference on Thursday at which the mayor and Police Commissioner Robert Taggart detailed numerous city initiatives to quell heightened violence in the southwest portion of Yonkers. Commissioner Taggart issued the following update on police activities in the Third Precinct and Fourth Precincts which covers the southwest and west sections of Yonkers. *Gun Amnesty Buy Back Program: 890 guns taken out of circulation and off the streets through a city-sponsored gun buy back program.
