October is Gun Amnesty Month

Prince George, B.C. – A firearms amnesty is in the works.

It will take place province-wide from October 1-31, 2016.

During that time residents are encouraged to arrange for the pick-up of any documented or undocumented firearms and other weapons including restricted and prohibited firearms and weapons that have not been used for a criminal purpose, as well as all forms of ammunition.

The government cautions residents not to drop any of the aforementioned items off in person and instead are asked to call their local police on their non-emergency line to arrange for pick-up.

The Province’s last gun amnesty in 2013 produced 1,801 firearms, 155 other weapons and approximately 30,700 rounds of ammunition.

The government says the goal of the program is “to ensure the safe disposal of unwanted weapons that could otherwise land in the hand of criminals, children or others, potentially leading to tragic consequences.”


Give them to me. I’m sure a number of responsible gun owners will take your unwanted fire arms off your hands. You might even make some money too.

    I’d be happy with some ammo, went to the range and only fired off 3 to 5 shots for each gun to make sure they were still on. Would have enjoyed killing a few hours there but I need to conserve ammo for the actual hunt.

List them on KIJIJI, or consign them at a gun dealer. Someone will give ’em a new home. Or call a PAL instructor, they can use them for their classroom.
