3/1/2013 - City's Gun Buyback Program Receives a 'Thumbs Up'

From the Connecticut Post:

Thumbs up to the gun-buyback program backed by Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch and the Bridgeport Police Department. Since the program started last Dec. 21, it's taken some 650 guns off the city's streets. The program lets people turn in weapons for money or grocery gift cards, all donated by individuals and businesses. The program will be in operation Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the department's Community Services Division at 1395 Sylvan Avenue. "This has so far exceeded expectations. Every gun that is taken off the street is one less gun that can harm an innocent bystander," said Mayor Bill Finch.
