Rockville Police to Partner with State’s Attorney and County Schools for Gun Buyback; $100/$200 Visa Gift Cards Offered for Functioning Guns Including Assault Style Weapons and “Ghost Guns”

The Rockville City Police Department, in partnership with the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office and Montgomery County Public Schools, will host a gun buyback event from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, in the parking lot of the RCPD station, 2 W. Montgomery Ave.

Community members will be able to voluntarily turn in their firearms and receive a $100 Visa gift card for functioning handguns, rifles and shotguns, and $200 in Visa gift cards for functioning assault-style weapons and privately-made firearms, i.e., ghost guns. All firearms will be accepted, with no identification needed and no questions asked by law enforcement. RCPD will make the ultimate determination on what firearms are eligible for gift cards.

When dropping off firearms, participants must remain in their vehicle at all times. Firearms must be unloaded and transported in the trunk. No ammunition in guns is allowed. No walk-ups will be allowed. For the issuance of the gift card, weapons must be functional. RCPD reserves the right to limit the number of gift cards given to an individual, regardless of the number of weapons surrendered. Nonfunctioning firearms and ammunition will be accepted with no exchange of compensation. Gift card quantities are limited and subject to availability.

Every gun turned in is one less gun that could be used in a serious crime, suicide or domestic violence incident, or accidentally discharged by a child. Keeping guns off community streets, out of the hands of youth and out of our schools remains the highest priority for all. This is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to dispose of an unwanted firearm voluntarily, anonymously and safely.
