It's been nearly two weeks since the shooting in Newtown, Conn., and while December gun sales are at record highs across the U.S., the LAPD is urging people to turn their firearms in.

They've moved up their annual gun buyback event from its usual spring date to today, in response to the Newtown tragedy.

KPCC's Erica Aguilar is at the buyback site, where they started taking guns about 20 minutes ago.
