In the wake of the Connecticut shooting, local leaders are hosting a gun buy back programs Saturday at two Brooklyn churches.

The NYPD and Brooklyn district attorney's office are teaming up for the program.

You can anonymously turn in a working gun in exchange for a $200 bank card or a $20 card for a rifle or shotgun, no questions asked.

Guns can be turned in at Mount Ollie Baptist Church on Saint Marks Avenue in Brownsville or at Saint Peter's Lutheran Church on Highland Place in Cypress Hills.

Thousands of guns have been collected since the program launched.
