April 18, 2023

The Baltimore County Police Department collected over 200 guns during Saturday’s firearm buyback event. Police partnered with the NAACP, Baltimore County chapter to host the event. Participants exchanged the guns for gift cards. Officials said the goal was to make communities safer. “It doesn’t matter if the guns come from any other state, any other county, we just want to get the guns off the street because guns can travel to Baltimore to kill individuals. We just want them off the street,” said Danita Tolson, president of the Baltimore County NAACP branch.
