COS Co-Sponsoring Gun Buy-Back on June 11

Church of Our Saviour and Calvary Methodist Church are among the sponsors for the June 11 Gun Buy-Back, to be held in the morning at the Dept. of Public Works, 51 Grove St., Arlington.

In the past two years, organizations in Arlington, Belmont, and other Middlesex towns have organized successful gun buy backs in their communities in partnership with the local police departments. Together they have recovered 242 guns. With this event, we hope to raise public awareness that unsecured firearms in homes are dangerous to children, people with mental illness, those vulnerable to domestic violence and others in the community. Reducing unwanted guns in homes can save lives and build a safer community. The guns collected will be properly destroyed by the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office. No questions asked. No identification required. To volunteer, please contact Jessica Walsh at JWalsh@town.arlington.ma.us.
