Bringing guns to church

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - December 22, 2008

But it was all part of the plan.

Authorities say 475 illegal guns were turned in at Long Island churches Saturday, in a cash for guns program.

People in Nassau County, New York, got 200 bucks for shotguns and pistols, no questions asked.

BB guns and air pistols were worth $20 cash.

The cash for the program came from money seized in criminal investigations.
