EVERETT POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL BE HOSTING ITS FIRST GUNS FOR GIFT CARDS EXCHANGE EVENT ON DECEMBER 17, 2022

EVERETT, WA –The Everett Police Department will host its first Guns for Gift Cards exchange on Saturday, Dec. 17, 2022 at the Everett Police South Precinct located at 1121 SE Everett Mall Way, Everett, WA. Residents of Everett and Snohomish County will be able to submit eligible firearms in exchange for pre-paid VISA gift cards. This event will take place from 10 a.m.-noon for Everett residents only and noon-2 p.m. for all Snohomish County residents.

Community members attending the event must leave all firearms unloaded, with the safety on and secured in the trunk, or in a locked area of a truck bed (in a canopy, toolbox, tonneau cover, etc.).

I remember when seattle did that, years ago. We drove down there and stood on streetcorners, like a bunch of hookers, waiving cash. I took home a half dozen firearms to include a WWI german battle rifle to a 30-30 Winchester lever made in 1949. Total cash output was US$275. A grand day.

I remember drooling at your haul. I belive that Sudden Valley Gunner did pretty well, too.
