‘Contribute your weapon.’ Blakeman announces gun drive for Ukraine
Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman has announced a gun collection for Ukrainian citizens fighting against Russia forces.
The announcement comes as Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy pleads for arms.
Zelenskyy has repeatedly said his citizens are in dire need of weapons to protect themselves from Russian forces invading their nation.
Residents will be able to donate unloaded legal weapons to SP Firearms Unlimited located at 804 Hempstead Turnpike, Franklin Square.
“We're not asking a lot. We're asking that you come to SP Firearms over the course of the next four days and you contribute your weapon," says Blakeman.
Elsewhere, the Woodbury Jewish Center, partnered with local officials today to collect supplies for Ukrainian refugees.
