Gun buyback program

Hello –

I’m a long time citizen of Menlo Park and I am writing to ask you to
support the gun buyback program that is being put forward by San Mateo
County. San Carlos and other towns are supporting it and I think this is
an excellent place for Menlo Park to invest in its citizens’ safety, and
help get excess weaponry off the streets, without impinging on the rights
of gun owners. It's a moderate and reasonable request. You may have heard
that Santa Cruz Country recently spent $40,000 on a very successful gun
buyback program.

Congresswoman Jackie Speier is in support as well and we could do no better
than to follow her lead. Please take this opportunity to move our city in
the right direction towards greater safety for everyone, and particularly
our school children. Let’s make a move to show them that their wellbeing
is paramount. Citizens need to see action around protecting people from
gun violence and gun buyback programs are an important part of that process.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Best regards,

Rebecca Robinson
