The Boulder Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship (BVUUF)

On Saturday, October 14, you can donate your unwanted firearms: drive thru from Noon – 2:00pm at 1241 Ceres Drive, Lafayette CO and receive grocery store gift cards (while supplies last).

Gift Card Value: $50 for your long gun or shotgun, $150 for your handgun or semi-automatic gun, $250 for your assault or tactical gun.

“Anyone may bring unwanted and unloaded guns to be dismantled and later made into garden tools,” said Rev. Lydia Ferrante Roseberry, Senior Minister of BVUUF. “Because we believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all beings, we are putting our energy into addressing the high level of gun violence in America and the harm that is being done through suicide, injuries, accidents and other gun violence. If you feel that it is no longer safe or desirable for you to have a gun in your home, this is a responsible way to dispose of unwanted guns”.

How it works:
Arrive at the church parking lot with your UNLOADED gun(s) in the trunk (no ammunition accepted).
• Remain in your vehicle and skilled personnel will remove your gun(s). Homemade guns will be accepted and destroyed, but not compensated for.
• Your gun(s) will be dismantled on site and will later be transformed into garden tools.
• You remain anonymous.
