They collected more than 98 firearms and 39 replicas during an event at Word of Life Ministries.
They believe one weapon off the streets could mean one less violent crime.
People who turned in guns, no questions asked, received $100.
Police also paid $10 for BB guns or replicas, which can also cause problems if they are mistaken for real weapons.
