The answer is zero.
The questions are:
Over the last year, how many people were killed by old, non-operational rifles?
How many of the people turning in guns were gang members?
How many guns will be tested to see if they match bullets used in homicides?

Exactly -- I guarantee not a single gang member turned in a gun.
And I wonder how many people got cash for a non-working gun, so that they could go out and buy a brand new working one?
Might be a "feel good" kind of effort, but will do absolutely nothing to reduce violence.

They do not pay as much.
What is the amount of money per gun that I might receive?
Up to $100.00 CASH will be given to individuals on the spot for hand guns, shotguns, and rifles and up to $200.00 CASH for assault weapons (as classified by the State of California). However, we reserve the right to limit the amount of funds an individual can receive.
