Residents are encouraged to turn in their unwanted firearms this Thursday at "Kicks 4 Guns" and receive a free gift card.
This year’s collaborative effort between the Lake County Sheriff’s Office and the Mount Dora Police Department to keep unwanted guns off the street will be held at Renninger’s Twin Markets in Mount Dora located at 20651 U.S. Highway 441.
There will be no questions asked of donors while unwanted firearms are collected through a drive-through operation. Participants are asked to keep all firearms in the rear areas of their vehicle and follow all safety signage and instructions. A law enforcement officer will then safely remove the firearm(s) from the vehicle. A gift card will be exchanged for each firearm turned in.
The Kicks 4 Guns event will begin at 7 a.m. and continue until 7 p.m.
