Firearm Amnesty Announced

Thursday, June 16, 2016 @ 10:57 AM

amnesty(1)Prince George, B.C.- The Province has announced October will  be the month  residents  can  turn in unwanted  fierarms, weapons or ammunition as   a month long  amnesty  will be in place.

From October 1st through to  the 31,   registered, or unregistered  firearms, including  restricted and prohibited  items,  can be turned over to police   without repercussions,  as long as the  items have not been used in  any criminal activity.

Those who want to take advantage of this  opportunity,  are  asked to  contact the local detachment of the RCMP on the non emergency line, and make arrangements for  officers to   pick up the  materials, Under no circumstances  should anyone  deliver these items  to  the detachment.

Firearms and ammunition surrendered during the amnesty will be destroyed.

The last firearms amnesty in BC  ( in 2013) saw 44 unwanted firearms turned over to Prince George RCMP,  and 1800  unwanted  firearms and weapons  turned in provincewide.


Okay bad guys, you can turn in your firearms now.

For anybody that had unwanted firearms they should be able to turn them in any time of the year.
This makes absolutely no sense to me!!
Waste of time! AND resources.

Talk about stupid! There are many Firearms Safety Instuctors that need more guns to teach safety. What is more important? All firearms turned over to the RCMP must be destroyed. What a waste when they could be used to save lives.

Anyone that doesn’t want their firearms can message me and I will pay you for the ones you wish to get rid of.
