On Saturday, December 14th, many area police departments will be taking part in a “Goods For Guns” campaign.  Local residents with unwanted or unsafe firearms will be able to take them to a participating police station and trade them in for gift cards for local supermarkets.

For each operable gun, you will receive $25 per rifle, $50 per pistol and $75 for automatic or semi-automatic weapons.  This program, sponsored in part by the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office, is designed to prevent injury or death from guns in local homes.

Registrations or licenses for these weapons are not necessary during this time and the program is anonymous.  Free gun locks are also available to those who request them.

It is important to note, all guns turned in during this program are to be unloaded and wrapped in packing material or a bag.
