SDSO gun buyback event in Lemon Grove leads to collection of 184 firearms

During the event held at the First Baptist Church of Lemon Grove, a total of 184 firearms were collected from individuals seeking to responsibly dispose of their weapons. In return for their handguns, rifles, shotguns, assault weapons, and ghost guns, participants received gift cards valued at $100 or $200, depending on the type of firearm turned in.

The SDSO emphasized the anonymous nature of these events, where no questions are asked of those surrendering firearms. However, they also noted that each weapon is thoroughly processed to check for any ties to criminal activity or if it has been reported stolen. Any firearm falling into these categories will be subject to further investigation.

One of the event’s key outcomes is the destruction of all collected firearms, ensuring these weapons will not fall into the wrong hands or be used in future crimes. Additionally, attendees had the opportunity to receive free cable locks and gun safety lock boxes, promoting responsible firearm storage among gun owners.

This recent event follows a similar successful gun buyback in Vista last December, which saw nearly 300 firearms turned in. For individuals looking to safely dispose of unwanted firearms outside of these events, the SDSO provides information and resources on their website.
