JEFFERSON COUNTY, AR -- The Jefferson County sheriff is hosting a gun auction Saturday in his quest to get rid of more than seven hundred guns.

They come in all sizes seized in misdemeanor and felony cases.

Interested buyers have had a chance to look at the guns before the auction.

Neighbors with the Pine Bluff Violent Crime Task Force said they feel comfortable knowing the sheriff will have stringent background checks before the guns leave the door.

"As far as I'm concerned, the weapons don't do anything. It's the person behind the weapon. A weapon is not just going to go off," said Kerry Price.

The auction takes place Saturday at 9 a.m. at the Pine Bluff Convention Center.
