The Coalition Against Gun Violence (CAGV), Moms Demand Action and many Santa Barbara elected officials and community organizations will gather in the spirit of honoring National Gun Violence Awareness Day at noon on June 7 at De la Guerra Plaza in Santa Barbara. CAGV will hold its fifth Gun Buyback on Saturday, June 15, from 8 a.m. to noon at Earl Warren Showgrounds. In partnership with the Santa Barbara Police Department, CAGV will exchange gift cards for functional firearms. For the past five years, hundreds of unwanted guns have been removed from circulation in an effort to reduce incidences of gun violence. For information, call (805) 684-8434.
