The following is a release from Ward 6 councilman Steve Kozachik's office:
On Tuesday, January 8th, beginning at 9am, Tucson Police will be accepting firearms, .22 caliber or
larger where the weapon is designed to fire a projectile that is propelled using expanding gas, that are voluntarily turned in by members of the general public.
In exchange, a $50 Safeway Food Store gift card will be provided. The event will take place atthe Tucson Police Department Hardesty Sub-Station located on Alvernon Way, just north of 22nd. There is a limited number of Gift Cards, so the event will end when they've all been given out.
Tucson Police will ensure the disposal of all firearms that are voluntarily turned in during this event
will be handled in compliance with all relevant Arizona Revised Statutes. Serial numbers will be
tracked through appropriate databases to identify weapons reported as lost or stolen, or that may be
implicated in any criminal activity.
This event is made possible by the generous donations from private individuals who join me in
wanting to offer this opportunity to City residentsto properly dispose of unwanted firearms. As has
occurred in many other cities, we hope this will allow people who wish to participate, a greater sense
of safety in their own homes for having taken part.
