Gun Buyback Program
A gun buyback that took place in San Mateo County on Saturday has been deemed a success by one of its organizers, Rep. Jackie Speier.
An anonymous private benefactor has donated $50,000 for a gun buyback event for residents in Fremont, Newark, and Union City hosted by Fremont police next weekend.
Santa Clara County has unveiled plans for what officials hope will be the largest gun buyback event held so far in the Bay Area.
A gun buyback event in San Mateo Saturday collected more than 680 firearms, including 24 assault weapons, 338 hand guns and 371 long guns, according to Congresswoman Jackie Speier.
The turnout ended up being so big that county officials actually ran out of money within hours, having to hand out vouchers instead.
