NJ Gun Buyback Coming to Atlantic County

So far, more than 5,000 weapons have been taken off the streets of New Jersey through the state-sponsored gun buyback program.  Attorney General Jeff Chiesa has announced another one will take place in Atlantic County on March 22 and 23.

“To date, approximately 5,000 guns, the vast majority of them operable and capable of ending a life, have been taken out of circulation as a result of these buybacks,” said Chiesa.  “That’s 5,000 firearms that will never kill or maim a police officer, an innocent bystander, a curious child or anyone else.  I urge the residents of Atlantic County to support this effort to make new Jersey safer by coming out later this month and selling back their firearms.”

The buyback will take place from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on March 22 and 23 at the Second Baptist Church in Atlantic City and the Faith Baptist Church in Pleasantville.  Residents can turn in as many as three firearms of any type no questions asked.  They will receive up to $250 per weapon depending on the type of gun and its condition.
