Waterbury Police Department Will Buy Your Unwanted Firearms This Saturday
The Waterbury Police Department is looking to buy any unwanted guns out there. According to a recent Facebook post, the Gun Buyback Program is for any Connecticut resident and is happening this Saturday, November 12th from 10 am to 1 pm at the Waterbury Police Training Center, 240 Bank Street in Waterbury.
So if you are in possession of an 'unwanted' gun and could use some extra spending money, the Waterbury Police Department can help you out. We all know that unwanted firearms in your house are dangerous especially when you have children. You can turn in a working gun for a gift card and yes, you can do it anonymously.
Here is the deal, you can turn in a working gun anonymously if you prefer and that gun needs to be unloaded and placed in a clear plastic bag inside a paper bag or box. You can turn in non-working guns, flare guns, pellet/BB guns, and magazine/ammunition clips but they are not eligible for any gift cards. "How much can I get for these guns I don't want anymore?" I thought you would never ask...here is the breakdown:
$200 gift card for an Assault Rifle
$100 gift card for a Handgun/Revolver
$50 gift card for a Shotgun/Rifle
$25 gift card for single and double-shot (Derringer-Style) handguns and any type of Black-Powdered Guns.
If you do have some guns you no longer need or want and they are not collector's items or family heirlooms it might not be a bad idea to get rid of them for some fast funds. For more information, you can contact Officer Matt Lemos at 203-574-6962 (ext. 4319).
