                                       Regional “Guns for Groceries” events a success
                          Nearly 200 firearms were taken off the streets in Fall River and New Bedford

 


On Saturday, November 17, the Fall River and New Bedford police departments, in partnership with the UMass Dartmouth Leduc Center for Civic Engagement, hosted “Guns for Groceries”. 


In total, 193 firearms were exchanged - 99 in Fall River and 94 in New Bedford respectively. Firearms exchanged included 72 handguns, 93 long guns, and 28 pellet/bb guns.

 

Officers also collected 4,000 rounds of ammunition and 20 knives.


“UMass Dartmouth is proud to partner with our communities to improve the health, education, and welfare of the Southcoast, said Matthew Roy, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Civic Engagement. “With a focus on public safety, we are honoring the legacy of Rev. Robert Lawrence by making our communities safer”.


The events were held at churches in Fall River and New Bedford and allowed anyone to bring in unwanted guns in exchange for Market Basket gift cards and Domino’s pizza coupons.


The program was inspired by the October 17 Rev. Dr. Robert Lawrence Lecture at UMass Dartmouth, which featured two survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting. The late Rev. Lawrence had orchestrated numerous gun giveback programs in Southeastern Massachusetts, removing more than 3,100 guns from the streets.
