Today we continue our ongoing conversation about  gun control and gun reform with a focus on gun buyback programs. 

Programs across the state--and country--offer gun owners cash, gift certificates, among other things,  in exchange for their firearms. So would tickets to high profile sporting events, like a Celtics or Red Sox game, be enough of an incentive for people to hand in their guns?

To find out if a program like this could work in the Bay State,  Callie Crossley spoke to Jack McDevitt, Associate Dean of Research at Northeastern’s College of Social Sciences & Humanities--he also heads the special commission on gun violence in Boston.
