Join us for Gun Safety Demonstrations, Firearms Trade In, Family, Food and Fun on Saturday, May 31, 2014, from 10 a.m. - 2 pm. at Second Missionary Baptist Church., 485 Washington Ave., Battle Creek, Michigan. (Map)

This FREE EVENT is also your opportunity to legally dispose of your unwanted firearms to a federally licensed dealer, Freedom Firearms. If you want to seek training opportunities so you can keep your firearm in confidence for home or personal defense then this too is an opportunity for you. We will be purchasing rifles, shotguns, and handguns. Battle Creek Police Department will also be on site providing amnesty to trade in your unwanted firearms for a set monetary value “No Questions Asked.” (Read flyer)

Representatives from each of these organizations will be on hand to educate children and their parents about fire, neighborhood, firearm, bike, and water safety.
