We made our fundraising goal!!!! On with the Gun Buyback!!
Congratulations to all of us who contributed and are working on this Gun Buyback for Norwalk CT on 10/28. I have added up all the contributions from GoFundMe, and others from other Quaker organizations, and WE MADE IT!
I bought the gift cards and met again with the police department today. Counting down the days!!!
Please spread the word that there are 8 cities in CT doing a gun buyback the same day, Saturday, 10/28.
Oh yes, and we hung up this banner outside the NPD station today!
Getting rid of unwanted guns means less accidents and gun thefts and safer communities.
