Arlington Gun Buyback 6/11
The Arlington Police Department is holding an Anonymous Gun Buyback Event on Saturday, June 11th from 10 AM – 3 PM at 51 Grove Street (DPW Yard). This event is focused on getting unwanted, unused, and unsecured guns out of homes where they pose a serious risk to children, people with mental illness, and those at risk of domestic violence. In return, those who turn in firearms will receive a gift card to the local supermarket. They are also encouraging children to turn in toy guns for an ice cream voucher. If you would like to volunteer or donate, please contact Jessica Walsh at JWalsh@town.arlington.ma.us or 781-316-3943.
