Gun Buy Back Event a Success

On Saturday, July 19th, 2014, Mothers United Against Violence, Hartford 100 Man Movement, Hartford Communities That Care (H.C.T.C.) and WeWorks Coalition in collaboration with members of the Hartford Police VIN Division and the Hartford States Attorney's Office, held a Local Gun Buy Back Program from 10am to 3pm at The Johnson Stewart Community Center, located at 127 Martin Street. A total of 58 firearms were collected, consisting of 21 pistols, 26 revolvers, 3 rifles, 5 shotguns, 2 derringer pistols and 1 flint lock pistol. Two of the firearms, a pistol and a shotgun, were listed in NCIC as stolen.
