Dozens of firearms turned in at Mukilteo Gun Buyback event

MUKILTEO, Wash., March 1, 2023—The Mukilteo Police Department collected a total of 32 firearms in exchange for $2400 in gift cards at its second Gun Buyback Event on Saturday, February 25, 2023. All exchanges were anonymous.

The first Gun Buy Back was in December of last year and collected 41 firearms in exchange for $2,850 in gift cards.

Both events were part of Mukilteo PD’s ongoing efforts to reduce gun violence and unwanted firearms in our community.

How it works?”

  • Person arrives at the Mukilteo Police Department in a vehicle.
  • The unloaded firearm placed in the trunk or backseat of the vehicle is exchanged by Mukilteo PD staff—$50 for handguns, and $100 for long guns (rifles, shotguns, etc.).
