ALBANY, NY – The Office of Albany County District Attorney David Soares, Albany County Sheriff Craig D. Apple Sr., and Pastor Charlie Muller, in cooperation with Senator George A. Amedore Jr., and Brian Olesen, owner of the Capital Gun Group, announced a Gun Buyback today with the goal of removing illegal firearms from our communities. “The 12 Days of Gun Buybacks” will be held to exchange illegal weapons for gift cards, just in time for the holidays.
“Please call me at 518-857-0726 and I will arrange a confidential exchange of any illegal handgun or long gun for a $100 gift card to Crossgates Mall,” said Pastor Charlie Muller.
The Office of District Attorney David Soares commented, “Our goal over the next 12 days is simple – to remove as many illegal weapons off of the streets as possible.”
Sheriff Craig D. Apple Sr. commented, “The more illegal guns we remove from our communities, the less opportunity there is that one of those may be used in a crime. I encourage folks to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Senator George A. Amedore Jr. commented, “By doing whatever we can to get illegal guns off our streets, we are helping to make our communities safer and more secure.”
Brian Olesen, owner of the Capital Gun Group, commented, “If this program results in even one illegal gun removed from the streets, it is a win for law-abiding citizens and law-enforcement alike.”
To arrange a confidential exchange of a weapon please call Pastor Charlie Muller at (518) 857-0726.
