Nearly 900 firearms are off the streets after a gun buyback in Ohio.
Residents in Akron and Cleveland were offered $100 grocery cards, two tickets to a Cavs basketball game and entered into a raffle to win up to $1,000, in exchange for weapons.
Both events were held at area churches and police were on hand to make sure none of the weapons were loaded.
The event was sponsored by several private businesses and local agencies, including local police.
A minister at one of the sponsor sites says he hopes the buyback will help prevent accidental shootings.
