$15K in donations to fuel Marin gun buyback plan
MARIN, Calif. (KGO) -- Next month officials in Marin will open five locations to buy back guns and violent videos using almost $15,000 in donations collected so far.
The donations include $10,000 from the Marin Community Foundation according to our media partner, the Marin Independent Journal. About $5,000 in donations comes from private donors.
This gun buyback program has the added twist of buying back violent video games.
The program was first proposed by the Marin district attorney after the Connecticut school shooting tragedy.
