in Community/Featured/Headline

A multi-agency Anonymous Gun Buyback event is set to be held in San Carlos on Saturday, Dec. 14.

The event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the end of Skyway Road.

Organizers are offering $100 for handguns and rifles and $200 for assault rifles, along with free gun locks and a raffle. The 102.9 KBLX crew is set to attend.

See the flyer below for more information.

This will be the third Gun Buyback event held in partnership with the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office, and the Redwood City, San Carlos and Belmont police departments. The buyback events were initiated by the Citizens for a San Mateo County Gun Buyback, which worked to solicit funding for the events from multiple city and town governments in the county.

A buyback in May last year in Redwood City led to the collection of 427 guns. In December last year, 442 guns were collected at another event in Redwood City.
