New Jersey's next gun buyback program is planned for Essex County.

Attorney General Jeffrey Chiesa will announce details during a news conference Thursday morning.

The program will seek to get guns off the streets in Newark, Orange, East Orange, Irvington and Montclair.

The announcement comes days after a gun buyback program in Mercer County netted more than 2,600 firearms, including a rocket launcher and semi-automatic rifles.
