APRIL GUN AMNESTY REPORT RELEASED BY OPP
The OPP have released the results of their Gun Amnesty Campaign in April. OPP detachments across the province received five hundred and ninety two gun amnesty calls for service; eighty six through their online service. Officers recovered six hundred and eighty nine items through appointments including two hundred and sixty seven rifles, one hundred and fifty six shotguns, one hundred and thirteen prohibited firearms, and sixty two other guns such as replica and vintage weapons. They also collected twelve thousand six hundred and fifteen pieces of ammunition. All Ontario police services participated in the month-long initiative. During that time, a total of fifteen hundred and three guns were voluntarily surrendered in non-OPP jurisdictions. A majority of firearms that have been surrendered to police will be destroyed, but a number of guns will be retained for historical, educational or training purposes.
