From the Santa Clara County District Attorney's office:
The Santa Clara County District Attorney's office will hold a gun buy back event on Saturday March 2nd, from 10 am to 2 pm at the County Fairgrounds, 344 Tully Road, San Jose.
You can get $100 for a handgun, shotgun or rifle, or $200 for an assault weapon. Please transport your firearms unloaded and in the trunk of your vehicle. Funds are limited and subject to availability. We reserve the right to limit the amount of cash an individual can receive regardless of the amount of firearms surrendered.
Nationwide, there were approximately 31,000 deaths by firearms in 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention National Vital Statistics Report.
The Santa Clara County Anonymous Gun Buy Back program is one part of the County’s initiative to reduce the number of guns in the community, as outlined in the 2013 State of the County Address. The Gun Buy Back program will allow individuals to voluntarily turn in their firearms, no questions asked, in exchange for cash. The Board President’s Office is working the Sheriff, the District Attorney and Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force to reduce the number of guns on the street. Share this information with your friends and family members to help make Santa Clara County safer for everyone.
