Gun Buyback Gets 207 Firearms


The Santa Barbara Police Department and the Coalition Against Gun Violence hosted an anonymous gun buyback on 6/13 at which 207 firearms were turned in for Vons gift cards. Organizers collected 98 handguns, 86 rifles, 22 shotguns, and one assault weapon. Free gun locks were also given away. During the city’s first gun buyback event last year, 239 firearms were collected.
