Marin County set to hold gun buyback program
Marin County plans to hold a gun buy-back program on Monday, although it is out of cash to exchange for the weapons.
A total of 827 guns were turned in last Tuesday. The program handed out a total of $43,000 in the first couple of hours and then gave out vouchers.
The Marin County District Attorney's office held the buyback and is raising money so that it can make good on the vouchers.
It will be handing out more of the vouchers during the gun buyback on Monday.
