Montgomery County sheriff deputies carted dozens of pistols, shotguns and rifles to an incinerator last week.

Montgomery County's gun turn-in program on Saturday brought in a total of 111 guns, including 69 handguns, 27 rifles and 15 shotguns.

In addition, officials also collected 1 grenade, 1 sword and about 10,000 rounds of ammunition.

Event organizers say for each weapon turned in, they will make a donation to the University of Maryland's Shock Trauma Center. The event was held in cooperation with the Maryland Attorney General's first annual statewide gun turn-in day.
