MIAMI, Fla. -

Officials say several "assault weapons" were exchanged -- no questions asked -- for premium tickets to a Miami Heat game.

A gun buyback event in Miami brought residents who exchanged 130 guns for either Heat tickets or gift certificates to Walmart or Winn Dixie

Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado says the Jan. 19 event brought in a record number of guns. Two more gun buyback events are planned for Jan. 26 in Overtown and Feb. 2 in Little Havana.
