Police and religious leaders are once again teaming up to help get illegal guns off New York City streets.

The NYPD's gun buy-back program returns to the Bronx Saturday.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., people can turn in handguns for a $200 bank card.

Rifles and BB guns can be redeemed for $20 each.

Weapons can be turned in at either the Grace Temple on Marion Avenue, Bronx Pentecostal Church on Watson Avenue, or Our Lady of Grace on Bronxwood Avenue.

More than 6,000 guns have been turned in since the program began.
