Bazooka-style rocket launcher among weapons turned in At S.F. gun buyback

SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX) A bazooka-style rocket launcher was among the weapons turned in at a gun buyback event on Saturday in San Francisco.

Police say the shoulder-fired, anti-tank weapon was one of at least 188 firearms that were swapped for cash at the 'no question asked event.'

The violence-prevention group 'United Playaz' organized the event with the San Francisco police department.

“It’s important because every gun that we destroy and we get off the street is a potential gun that could have killed somebody or destroyed a whole universe — just one of those guns,” Rudy Corpuz Jr., executive director of United Playaz told KPIX.
