Wayland Police collecting unwanted guns from residents

The Wayland Police posted the following on their Facebook Page:

The Wayland Police Will Collect Unwanted Guns from Residents.

The Wayland Police Department would like to help Wayland residents remove unwanted guns from their homes.
If you contact the Wayland Police we will advise you on how you can legally transfer your unwanted firearms to a firearms dealer, or we will come to your home and safely remove all unwanted firearms from your home.

Many people have guns in their homes that they simply don’t want anymore. We would like to help residents remove all unwanted guns from homes so that they don’t end up in the wrong hands.

Suicide is a growing public health concern. Approximately 60 percent of gun deaths in this country are suicides. Our goal is to save lives and increase public safety.

Several years ago the Wayland Police started collecting unwanted and expired prescription drugs. This program has been a great success. We believe that removing unwanted guns from homes will make Wayland safer.
