Police are giving you a chance to hand over unwanted guns and ammunition, no questions asked. August 11th is one of several gun amnesty days held around Omaha in 2012 with a goal of getting illegal and unwanted weapons off the streets.
Unwanted or illegal guns and ammunition may be dropped off at a collection point at the Sheet Metal Workers Union Hall at 3333 South 24th Street. Drive-up service will be available.
No compensation will be given for the firearms turned in. However, citizens dropping off firearms will have the peace of mind that one less gun will be available in our community to those who choose to use it to harm others or commit a crime.
