That consisted of 17 handguns, nine rifles and 13 shotguns. Additionally, three air guns and six, five-gallon buckets of ammunition were turned in during the four hours.
Police said the guns weren’t as old as those previously collected on amnesty days, an indication citizens are starting to trust the events.
Weapons and ammo are taken with no questions asked.
Sgt. Eric Nordby said often people give up guns because someone who owned that gun simply doesn’t want it anymore and doesn’t know how to get rid of it. He said even if you’re not using a gun, keeping it still puts people at risk.
“That doesn't mean that gun won't get stolen sometime or get sold, private sell, and somehow, some way, ultimately end up in the hands of somebody who does have criminal intentions. The potential is gone for these guns to be used in a crime."
The guns collected will be run through ballistics tests to make sure they haven’t been used in a crime. After that, they’ll either be cut up, shredded or burned.
