Hollywood police amass arsenal during gun buyback

The cornucopia of weapons ranged from BB guns and pistols to shotguns and semi-automatic rifles at a gun buyback hosted by police in Hollywood.

Between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Saturday, a total of 65 firearms were swapped for Publix gifts cards worth $75 to $250.

A line of vehicles wound around police headquarters, at 3250 Hollywood Blvd., as soon as the gate opened.

One man turned over nine rifles he inherited from a relative’s estate. Another man said he would rather turn in his gun for a gift card than risk selling it online to a stranger whose intentions are unknown.
