UTICA – Attorney General Barbara Underwood is teaming up with the City of Utica and the Utica Police Department for a Community Gun Buy-Back event next week.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, July 10, members of the community can take their guns to the Utica Recreation Center at 220 Memorial Parkway, in the upper parking lot off of Elm Street, to be sold with no questions asked.
Payments will be given by way of pre-paid debit cards. It will be $25 for non-working or antique firearms, $50 for rifles and shotguns, $75 for handguns and $100 for assault weapons.
No identification is required to turn in a firearm, and no questions will be asked to the person dropping it off.
Guns must be unloaded and placed in a plastic or paper bag, or a box. You can turn in as many firearms as you would like.
Licensed gun dealers and active or retired law enforcement officers aren’t eligible for the gun buy-back event.
