The Bronx is expanding its successful gun buyback program to include -- for the first time in the city -- BB and air guns, officials announced yesterday.
Although not normally lethal, BB and air guns sometimes are used by criminals to scare victims into thinking the weapons are conventional, deadly handguns.
People who surrender such weapons Jan. 23 at several churches in The Bronx will be given a $50 gift or cash card for each BB gun turned in, up to a $150 cap.
The churches will also accept regular guns.
BB guns retail for between $40 and $60.
