Gun Buyback Event
The Bloomington Police Department will be holding a Gun Buyback Event on Sunday, 10/29/23, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., or until funds run out. The buyback will be held at the Bloomington Fire Department Maintenance and Training Annex, located at 2602 Six Points Road. This event was made possible by grant funds awarded by the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.
$60,000 was allotted via a grant from the State of Illinois. Remember the gun safes that weren’t made for guns? That was another $60,000. Grant recipients never acknowledge grants are still tax dollars.
Everyone except the Democrats in Illinois know the only way to reduce violent crime is to lock up the people who commit it. They passed the Safe-T Act.
