BC Residents Handing Over Firearms to Police, BC Gun Amnesty Continues

Vancouver, BC: As part of the BC Government’s ongoing gun amnesty, the Vancouver Police are asking the public to consider calling and handing over any unwanted firearms.

British Columbians can turn over unwanted and unauthorized firearms, ammunition and weapons to police agencies across the province during the gun amnesty from October 1-31, 2016.

The purpose of the gun amnesty is to help remove unwanted firearms from the community, eliminating the risk of them falling into the hands of criminals or being part of a tragic and unfortunate circumstance.

The attached photos are examples of some of the weapons that have been handed over to the Vancouver Police.

Officers encourage people to call their local police departments to arrange for officers to come pick up unwanted firearms, weapons, and ammunition. In Vancouver, residents are asked to call the non-emergency number at 604-717-3321 – do not drop off items at the police department.
