This is pretty incredible! There was as special moment that took place in Hamburg, New York at a gun show that has everyone talking.

While the NFG show was happening at the Erie County Fairgrounds, Carrie Underwood's version of the National Anthem played over the loud speaker and those in attendance stopped to honor it.

One of the best traditions in Buffalo radio is that WYRK continues to play the Star Spangled Banner at noon and at midnight. It started after the attacks on September 11th, 2001 and is something that we keep as part of our regular programming.

If you missed this past weekend, according to their website, there are other shows planned including one on May 21.

This past weekend was also the first ever statewide gun buyback across New York State.

From Niagara County to Albany, people were invited to bring in their guns in exchange for a cash card. There was no limit on the amount of guns a person could bring in and there were various amount of cash (cards) given based on the type of weapon. The "assault" style guns were worth the most.


The numbers are in and it looks like thousands of guns were bought back in New York State. Late Saturday 4/29, it was announced in a press release that:

Including the guns turned in at the Niagara Falls event, Attorney General James secured more than 3,000 guns today alone from across the state.

We recovered 3,076 guns today, including 185 assault weapons.
