HARRIS COUNTY – The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Office of Commissioner Lesley Briones, Precinct 4, to organize a gun buyback event. This event encourages residents to voluntarily turn in their firearms for gift cards just ahead of the holidays.
We hope to see everyone at the gun buyback event on Saturday, November 18, from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. at the Westchase Park and Ride, 11050 Harwin Dr, Houston, TX, 77072.
This event is a proactive community safety initiative and can have positive outcomes in preventing accidents and promoting responsible gun ownership. There is $170,000 in gift cards to hand out to the community and those cards are ready for immediate use.
All weapons collected during this buy back event will be destroyed and will not be resold or kept by the Sheriff’s Office.
For those planning to turn in firearms next week, do not sell your firearms to solicitors who may be outside the event. You never know if that firearm ends up in the wrong hands. Let our professionally trained staff safely dispose of the firearms.
