The KCSO Gift Cards for Guns Program is a voluntary program that provides the public with a viable alternative for disposing of firearms and ammunition. 

The program was initiated by the King County Council County and King County Executive’s Office and aims to reduce gun violence and promote public safety.

The program aims to address the increase in gun violence in King County by implementing a voluntary firearm and ammunition return program that residents can easily access. 

By reducing the number of guns in circulation, the program hopes to decrease the number of accidents, injuries, and deaths caused by firearms. The program also offers residents a safe, consistent option for returning unwanted guns and ammunition.

The KCSO Gift Cards for Guns Program offers gift cards to residents who turn in their unwanted firearms and ammunition, with no questions asked. The program is open to all King County residents, regardless of age or legal status.

The King County Sheriff’s Office encourages residents to take advantage of this opportunity to contribute to public safety and reduce the risk of gun violence in our communities.
