Gun Buy Back Program 2022

Gun Buyback Program

Marin County’s effort to enhance safety in the community includes the goal of collecting and disposing of unwanted and unneeded firearms.

On June 4, the Marin County District Attorney’s Office, the City of San Rafael, and local law enforcement agencies are conducting a gun buy-back event at the sheriff’s headquarters in San Rafael.

By encouraging people to turn in or sell guns they no longer want in their homes the collaborating agencies are working to help reduce:

  • gun violence,
  • the risk of accidental discharges,
  • domestic violence,
  • suicide,
  • gun theft.

All guns collected will be destroyed.


Saturday June 4th, 2022 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM in the east side parking area of the Marin Sheriff's Office at 1600 Los Gamos Drive in Norhtern San Rafael.

$100.00 for functional handguns, rifles, and shotguns.

$200.00 for semi-automatic weapons.

No questions will be asked, and showing identifications will not be necessary.

The drive-up event is limited to three operable firearms per person. All weapons must be brought in vehicle trunks.
