Solano County’s first countywide gun buyback program today collected 344 weapons including a military rocket launcher and multiple assault rifles, according to Vallejo police Chief Joseph Kreins. The buyback, conducted from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., drew in 113 handguns, 67 shotguns, 163 rifles, including multiple assault rifles and the rocket launcher, Kreins said.

“The goal of the operation was simple: We wanted to get as many illegal and unwanted guns off the streets of Solano County as possible,” Kreins said in a statement today. “We all know that these very firearms are often used to commit violent crimes against our fellow citizens and in a variety of tragic scenarios, including suicides,” Kreins added.
