BRIDGETON – State, Cumberland County and local law enforcement will hold a gun buyback program in the county next month.
The event will be held on June 7 and 8 in churches in Bridgeton, Millville and Vineland, authorities announced today.
County residents can turn in the guns with “no questions asked.” Authorities will pay up to $250 for a gun, depending on the type of weapon.
This will be the seventh state-sponsored gun buyback program. Law enforcement agencies have collected more than 10,000 weapons in the other buyback operations.
New Jersey Attorney General Jeffrey S. Chiesa said his office decided to hold the gun buyback in Cumberland County because law enforcement agencies are in need of help from the state.
