More than 65 guns are now off the streets after a gun buyback event in Brooklyn Saturday.

One of the deadlier weapons turned in was a MAC-11 semi-automatic with a 30-round magazine.

In all, 28 semi-automatics, 37 revolvers and two other weapons were handed in.

In exchange, the people surrendering the weapons received $200, no questions asked.

The event was held at an Islamic center in Sunset Park.
