Gun Buyback Event

The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office is leading an effort to put unwanted firearms out of commission.

The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office is leading an effort to put unwanted firearms out of commission by offering gift cards in exchange for weapons that will then be destroyed. The event is set for April 13 at the Northampton and Greenfield police departments.

The program offers $75 for handguns, rifles, and shotguns and $150 for assault weapons. The event will mark the third time the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office has launched a gun buyback program. In 2013, 301 unwanted guns were collected, and in 2016, residents turned in 273 guns. All collected guns were destroyed.

Firearms will be accepted from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Northampton Police Station, 29 Center St. and the Greenfield Police Station, 321 High St. The firearms must be unloaded, in working condition, and in a bag. Ammunition will also be accepted for destruction. Antique guns will be delivered to the Springfield Armory.

The Gun Buyback event is being organized jointly by the Northwestern District Attorney’s Office, the Hampshire and Franklin Sheriff’s Offices, and the Northampton and Greenfield police departments with funds from a Safe Neighborhood Grant awarded to the District Attorney’s Office by Gov. Maura Healey’s office.
