Yes, you can get money for your guns. Check in the couch, look under your car seat, grab that rifle off your neighbor’s gun rack, pull out that pistol with the serial number filed off that you were saving for a special occasion. They’re all worth $50.
The Lakeland Police Department has decided to host their first “gun buy back” meet and greet. While supplies last, LPD will trade your oily old guns for $50 gift certificates. Now, gift cards are in shorter supply than guns, so get there early. When the cards run out, LPD will still accept your slightly-used guns and give back the good feeling that another pistol won’t be laying around the living room.
LPD is not using city funds to buy the guns. Donations and money seized from criminal activity was used to fund the program. If you’d like to ask LPD any questions about the event, call Jack Gillen, Public Information Officer, at 863 834-6949
