New Orleans police chief Shaun Ferguson at a gun buyback event called for by New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell on Jan 20, 2019. The line started at 5:30. Only 200 of the more than 1000 people who turned out were able to claim the $500 offered for any gun turned in. When the Mayor first announced the buyback program no limits were put on how many guns you could bring in for $500. That was changed to $500 maximum payout to any one who could prove residency in Orleans Parish.
