CrimeStoppers Gun Buyback Event: Saturday, August 19, Bryant Missionary Baptist Church


CrimeStoppers Gun Buyback Event To Be Held On Saturday,
August 19, 2023 @ Bryant Missionary Baptist Church

On Saturday, August 19, 2023, starting at 10:00 a.m. Central Alabama CrimeStoppers, in
conjunction with the City of Montgomery and Montgomery Police Department, will be hosting
an anonymous Gun Buyback event at the Bryant Missionary Baptist Church located at 3645
Norman Bridge Road in Montgomery, AL. Citizens who surrender guns at this event will receive
gift cards in the amount of $50 for any rifle or shotgun, $100 for any functioning handgun, and
$200 for an assault and/or semi-auto rifle.
The Gun Buyback hosted in Montgomery on May 20, 2023, was deemed a success. A total of 89
guns were collected between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. A total of $6,450.00 in gift cards were
paid to citizens for the guns collected. A total of 219 guns were destroyed on that day that
had been collected from previous gun buyback events.
The purpose of the Gun Buyback event is to provide a safe and anonymous way for community
members to turn in firearms they no longer need or want. In past events, many of the participants
were widows who were left numerous guns by their loved one, single adults who were given a
gun by their parents and were never taught the proper way to use a firearm, or parents who didn’t
want a gun falling into the hands of their child, and the list goes on and on. By participating in
this event, you are helping to keep our communities safer by reducing the number of guns in
circulation. We encourage all residents to consider taking advantage of this opportunity to make
a positive impact in our community.
If you provide a valuable resource to the community such as summer programs, mentoring, or
counseling, and you would like to setup a table during one of our Gun Buyback events please
contact CrimeStoppers by calling 334-215-7867 or sending an email to
[email protected].
To those planning to attend, please remember to transport your firearms
unloaded and in the trunk of your vehicle. All guns will be accepted, no
questions asked, in exchange for a gift card ranging from $50 to $200.
