Police guard some of the more than 1,600 firearms which were voluntarily surrendered to police custody over a five-hour period last Saturday are on display at a press conference at police headquarters in Los Angeles, California on May 11, 2009. More than 1,600 firearms were voluntarily surrendered to police custody over a five-hour period May 9, 2009 in the one-day gun buyback program in which citizens who turned in a handgun, shotgun or rifle received a USD100 voucher for a local supermarket while people who turned in higher caliber assault weapons such as a AK-47, Uzi or AR-15 received a voucher worth USD200. The gun buyback program is a component of Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's 2009 gang plan to reduce gun violence. At right is city councilmember Jack Weiss and second from left is the mayor's anti-gang czar Rev. Jeff Carr.
