Gun Buyback In Northampton, Greenfield Saturday

People in the mostly rural western Massachusetts counties of  Hampshire and Franklin are being urged to turn in unwanted firearms on Saturday, October 5th

   The Northwestern District Attorney’s Office  has organized its first gun buyback. DA David Sullivan said the idea is to  get guns people have no use for out of homes to prevent the weapons from being stolen or otherwise falling into the wrong hands.

   Firearms can be exchanged for $50 gift cards at the police stations in Northampton and Greenfield on Saturday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
