Saturday, May 11, 2013 is the First Annual Maryland Gun Turn-In Day.    

the gun turn-in event will allow anyone to surrender illegal or unwanted handguns, rifles, shotguns or air guns to local law enforcement, no questions asked. No personal identification will be required.

"This gives family members the opportunity to remove illegal and unwanted guns from the home that they fear would be used to harm themselves or others," added the Attorney General.

The no questions asked policy and no identification allows people to turn in guns that may have been obtained illegally without worrying about being charged with a crime.  

The gun turn-in day will also allow those who have guns and no longer want to own them to easily get rid of them without having to worry that the guns will end up in the wrong hands.  

That this event is being publicized as "The First Annual" indicates that the Attorney General intends to make this event a yearly event.  

So if you (or someone you know) lives in Maryland and has a gun they want to get rid of, please pass on the information about Gun Turn-In Day.  Click on the link below for a list of locations for turning in the guns.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
