ADDENDUM (message from Ceasefire): “Just to clarify, this is not about someone taking guns from anyone involuntarily. The co-sponsors are providing a community service. The voluntary Turn-In of Unwanted Firearms is intended to help people who have guns, but no longer want them for whatever reason. (No Questions Asked.) Participants who choose to turn in their guns, rather than sell them privately, want the to gun be melted down and permanently removed from circulation.
To support this decision, our local Central Coast Ceasefire Oregon chapter has purchased Gift Cards for participants. No Gift Cards were donated. In the future, we would prefer to work with local merchants who are willing to match the value of Gift Cards we purchase. We would also welcome more co-sponsors. That is the spirit of community this event is intended to encourage.”
