Ridgefield Police are hosting a gun buy-back program next weekend. In an effort to reduce the number of guns on the streets, Ridgefield Police will be at the Town Highway Department building on South Street next Saturday August 10th from 9am to 4pm.
Police said in a press release that there will be no questions asked so people with unregistered and unlicensed firearms can bring them in in exchange for cash. State Police will destroy all weapons and ammunition turned in. Police will be accepting everything from large magazine clips to bb guns.
The funding for the buy back program is coming through private donations.
