Law enforcement officers will exchange your firearms for gift cards at buyback event
The City of Syracuse is partnering with the State Attorney General’s Community Gun Buyback Program this weekend in an effort to address gun violence.
This Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., gun owners will have the chance to exchange their working and non-working unloaded firearms for gift cards ranging from $25 to $300. Ghost guns and non-serialized guns qualify for an additional $100.
The collection site will be staffed with law enforcement to take in and secure the firearms. Gun owners are encouraged to go to St. Lucy’s Food Pantry at 425 Gifford St. in Syracuse to participate in the exchange.
