Rockville Police to Hold Gun Buyback Event

by Patrick Herron

On Wednesday, August 17 at 1pm, there will be a news conference held at the Rockville Police Statioion (2 W. Montgomery Ave) announcing a gun buyback event scheduled for Saturday, August 27. Rockville City Police Chief Victor Brito, State’s Attorney John McCarthy and Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Monifa McKnight will be in attendance.

The Rockville City Police Department, in partnership with the Montgomery County State’s Attorney’s Office and Montgomery County Public Schools, will announce details of a gun buyback event planned for Saturday, Aug. 27.

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. The Aug. 27 gun buyback is a great opportunity for anyone who would like to dispose of an unwanted firearm voluntarily, anonymously and safely.
