San Bernardino gun buyback a success

This Saturday’s gun buyback event in San Bernardino was a huge success.

So much so that it ended 2 hours early, after the San Bernardino Police Department collected 211 guns.

Food4Less generously donated $10,000 in grocery gift cards for the program. Firearms classified as assault weapons were traded for $100 gift cards. Other weapons netted a $50 gift card.

Among the guns turned in were AK-47, SKS and Uzi assault weapons.

The SBPD is seeking other donors and community groups to partner with for future buybacks. If you are such an entity, please call the department at 909-384-5742.
