By SDCN Editor

Vista, CA–The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department is partnering with the San Diego County District Attorney’s Office and the Oceanside Police Department to get unwanted guns off the streets. 

A Gun Safety event will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on December 10 at the North County Regional Center, 325 South Melrose Drive in Vista.

Residents can turn in unwanted guns, and receive a gift card ($100 for handguns, rifles, and shotguns, and $200 for assault weapons, and ghost guns). Remain anonymous. No questions asked.

Firearms must be in working order to receive the gift cards. 

All unloaded firearms must be placed in the trunk of the vehicle. A deputy or officer will provide instructions to the gun owner.

According to the Sheriff’s Department, all weapons collected at the event will be destroyed.

Deputies and officers will provide free gun cable locks, and security boxes (while supplies last) to people looking to secure firearms kept in their homes.
