Bensalem citizens looking to unload their guns for a load of cash can go to the municipal building Wednesday night or Saturday and get paid for surrendering their arms.

The goal is to reduce gun violence, organizers say. Gun givers can get up to $200 for assault rifles, $100 for semi-automatic handguns and $50 for handguns, rifles and shot guns. The first 100 people will also receive two VIP passes to The Comedy Works in Georgine's restaurant in Bristol.

To participate in the buyback, go to the township building at 2400 Byberry Road from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday or 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Questions? Go to www.bensalempolice.org or call the cops at (215) 633-3700 x3777.
