Stamford Police Hosting Gun Buyback Dec. 14

Accepting firearms, violent video games

Stamford, CT | Added on December 11, 2013 At 11:44 AM

The Stamford Police Department is hosting its gun buyback program Saturday, December 14.  

Stamford police are hosting the buyback to give individuals a safe and legal way to dispose of unwanted firearms and ammunition from homes and businesses.  The hope is to prevent accidental injuries, or stolen firearms that could be used in a crime.

The department will accept both operational and non-operational firearms, other types of dangerous weapons,  and ammunition carry cases and holsters.  The program is open to both Stamford residents and non-residents.  

Some rules from Stamford police for the program:

 -All firearms must be unloaded

-Weapons should be transported in a vehicle's trunk

-If carrying by hand, place the firearm in a bag or box

-Ammunitions should be transported in a container separate from any firearm

-Business and gun dealers do not qualify

-Firearms considered to be junk will not be accepted


Police will also accept violent video games, movies, and software.  

Gift cards will be given for operational firearms, while supplies last.

The  Stamford Police Association's Gun Buyback Day is Saturday Dec. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Stamford Police Headquarters, 805 Bedford St.
