PHILADELPHIA, April 4, 2012 Continuing his commitment to help reduce violence and restore safety in communities across Philadelphia, state Sen. Anthony H. Williams will host his fourth gun buyback in 10 months.

The event, co-hosted by Uplift Solutions, will take place on Saturday, April 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Myers Recreation Center, 5803 Kingsessing Ave. in Philadelphia.

Participants will receive $100 gift cards (until supplies last) in exchange for turning in their guns, no questions asked. There is a limit of two gift cards per person. Starter pistols, flares and air guns will not be accepted.

To date, the senator’s recent gun buybacks have removed 400 guns from the 8th Senatorial District.

“Gun violence continues to plague our streets so we all must do our part to maintain peace in our communities. Prevention is key,” Williams said. “This gun buyback is a simple, effective way to prevent weapons from ending up in the wrong hands.”
