Miami-Dade County Commissioner Dennis C. Moss and the Miami-Dade Police Department will host a Safer Communities Gun Buy Back Event. The event will take place on Saturday, July 27, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Goulds Park Gym, 11350 SW 216 Street.
Anyone may drop off a firearm, no questions asked. In exchange for turning in a gun, individuals may receive a gift card(s) up to $200 per gun. Free gun locks for safe gun storage will be provided while supplies last. Residents are asked to bring all firearms unloaded and in the trunk of a vehicle.
"I encourage residents to come out and support our efforts in making this community a safer place for our families and children,” said Commissioner Moss. “Gun ownership must not be taken lightly. We must continue to educate individuals on the importance of responsible gun ownership and discard as many unwanted firearms as possible in the process."
In addition to this South Dade regional event a North Dade regional Gun Buy Back is also scheduled to take place at the Biscayne Landings sales office, 15045 Biscayne Boulevard on July 27, 2013 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m., hosted by Commissioner Sally A. Heyman.
