The astonishing arsenal of guns handed in by people living in America's deadliest city - just hours after Sandy Hook massacre

Impacted by the carnage in Sandy Hook, residents of Camden, New Jersey, turned in a record number of weapons in a gun buyback program over the weekend.

'A lot of people said they don't want the guns around the house now,' said state Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa as he announced the result of the program held Friday and Saturday at two Camden churches.

The state brought in 1,137 guns, surpassing the previous record of 700 weapons from a 2009 Essex County event.
