Turn in a Gun, Go for a Run

Everyone who turns in an unwanted gun this Saturday at the Yarmouth Police Department will receive $50 off of the next pair of running or workout shoes from Hanlon Shoes, a $10 gift card to DiParma's and a $20 gift card to Powderhorn Outfitters.

From the Yarmouth Police Department:

On Saturday, January 5, 2013 from 8AM to 4PM Yarmouth Police Headquarters will serve as a collection point for anyone who has unwanted firearms or ammunition.

Having a firearm or ammunition in your home is a big responsibility and demands the highest level of respect and security. If anyone finds that they no longer want the responsibility of having a firearm or ammunition in their home please contact us and we will appropriately dispose of the items in accordance with Massachusetts laws.

Anyone who brings a firearm or ammunition to our facility must make sure it is unloaded and fully-secured. If there are any doubts about its safety please call us and a Police Officer will come to your home, safely remove it and transport it to our facility.

Everyone who turns in an unwanted gun will receive $50 off of the next pair of running, hiking or workout shoes from Hanlon Shoes, a $10 gift card for lunch or dinner at DiParma's Italian Table, Red Face Jack's Sports Pub or the Yarmouth House, and a $20 gift card to Powderhorn Outfitters.  

For more information about this program please contact Yarmouth Police Records Division Officer Albert Sprague at 508.775.0445 extension 2136 or by email at asprague@yarmouth.ma.us

"A $20 gift card to Powderhorn Outfitters"... down payment on a new gun. Nice.

hopefully that's not sarcasm. Its nice that the owners of powderhorn would give an incentive for this event. Clearly, they are in the business of firearms. If your comment is political, and derogatory, know that this isn't publicized as a political event, just a responsible citizen event.
