The citywide Gun Buyback Program is an initiative of the Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development (GRYD).  Major corporate sponsorship is being provided by KCBS-2 and KCAL-9.  City leaders and LAPD Gun experts will also be available to answer questions about the event and about the guns.

Individuals may surrender guns anonymously at any of the four Gun Buyback locations.  The Public is reminded that when bringing a firearm to a location, please leave the unloaded gun(s) in a locked container or stored in a vehicle trunk.   The Gun Buyback staff will provide direction to individuals surrendering guns after discussing their intent to surrender a weapon.  Those interested in receiving a Ralph’s gift card, may qualify for a $100 card for handguns, shotguns, and rifles and $200 for assault weapons as classified in the state of California.

For further information, please contact the Mayor’s Communication office at 213-978-0741 or LAPD Media Relations at 213-486-5910.
