The Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office will hold a “Guns for Cash” firearms exchange program this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, July 30 to Aug. 1.
The program will be held at the Asbury Park Police Department on Main Street from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. People can turn in certain types of unwanted weapons for the following cash payments: $25 for shotguns or rifles; $50 for handguns; and $100 for assault weapons, according to the prosecutor’s office. The program is anonymous and voluntary, and you are allowed to transport the weapons to the police station without a gun permit. Weapons should not be concealed but unloaded and in a gun case or sealed container, the prosecutor’s office said. Any other questions should be directed to the prosecutor’s office. This is a great way to get rid of some weapons that may not exactly be legal.
