New Mexico State Police coordinating gun buyback event in Las Cruces, Albuquerque, and Espanola

LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KVIA) -- New Mexico State Police are scheduled to hold gun buyback events in Albuquerque, Las Cruces, and Espanola early next month.

The events will take place on November 4, 2023, from 8:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at the following locations:

  • Las Cruces, at the Sportsman’s Warehouse at 2230 N. Telshor Blvd.
  • Albuquerque, at Expo New Mexico at 300 San Pedro Gate 6 (south of Lomas).
  • Espanola, at Robert “Gordy” Vigil Regional Sportsplex at 2000 Industrial Park Rd.

According to state police, people may anonymously hand in unwanted guns and firearms and receive Visa and/or American Express gift cards in return. No questions will be asked about who owns the guns or where they came from.

The department says buybacks are intended to prevent unwanted or unneeded weapons from causing harm or being used to commit acts of violence.
