Mayor Leo Scoda and the Phoenixville Police Department are holding a gun buyback day next weekend, The Mercury is reporting.
By getting extraneous weapons out of homes, Scoda told the paper he hopes the event will make the borough safer.
“People say, ‘I’ve got [my guns] hidden,’” Scoda said. “Yeah, right. The kids find the Christmas presents you have hidden, too.”
The event will run at the borough hall on November 10 from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.
Those that turn in a gun will get a $50 gift card in return.
