Gun violence is a public health crisis in the United States, and an upcoming firearms buyback event in Morgan Hill aims to address the problem by keeping unwanted weapons out of the wrong hands, according to county law enforcement and government officials.

Some of that violence has occurred in South County. At a Dec. 2 press conference held at City Hall by local officials to promote the Dec. 10 buyback, Morgan Hill Police Chief Shane Palsgrove noted that a public art piece named “Everyone’s Child” just outside the building was created and installed as “a symbol of our community’s commitment to maintaining a non-violent environment for our children.”
