Residents hand over dozens of guns before amnesty begins

Ottawa city's gun amnesty hasn't even begun, but police have already raked in dozens of firearms.


Firearms collected by police since the beginning of January

So far, police have collected 43 guns since the city announced plans to host the amnesty on Jan. 5 as part of a larger strategy to reduce gun crime in the city.

FROM JAN. 6, 2006: City announces plan to fight gun violence
Police showed off part of their haul to media Friday morning.

One-third of the guns collected were missing essential working parts, and most were several decades old.(How many boating accidents happend?)

Staff Sgt. Mike Callaghan displayed a few of the more interesting finds, such as the only semi-automatic pistol in the haul, an 80-year-old German Walther .380, a rusty antique breechloader from the 19th century, and two old-style revolvers of the "Saturday night special" design.

They also raked in a number of shotguns, hunting rifles and BB guns.

While Staff Sgt. Mike Callaghan says police were never under the illusion that criminals would hand over their high-powered weapons, but says it's still useful to collect the unwanted guns.

"It provides the opportunity for the community to turn in these unwanted firearms, reducing the potential of a break-and-enter occurring and these firearms being stolen." ()

All guns will be checked by forensics at a police evidence facility in the city's south end to determine whether they were used in any known crimes.

Any firearms with historical value will be offered to museums, and the rest destroyed.

The gun amnesty program officially begins next Wednesday, Jan. 25.

If people don't want guns, or don't want to know how to use them, they should know better than to have them. Leave that to the rest of us. I don't really care.

High power huh? The guns in those pictures are way more powerful than a tec-9 or .223 rifle, fucking retard Canadians.

What a waste of money. What dumb-ass would turn a gun into the police that was used in a criminal act? Better check that breech loader and the bb guns, too

I'm not certain if the turn in is connected, but there have been a couple of high profile firearms thefts from Canadian gun collectors and the Canadian Prime Minister is calling for a nationwide handgun ban.

Of course!
If a criminal steals something - just ban it!
Wha-la; no more crimes of that nature.

So, the criminals won't disarm, the police know it, but find it useful to disarm the good folk? What an @$$hole!

That's exactly the kind of firearms they would get from me if they came knocking on my door for confiscation. The rest would be in a secure location.

Oh wait I must be the first, Bans work to get the criminal to hand in their guns.





Or let me add their ideas are total

Let them disarm themselves. They will be easier to assimilate when the time comes.

Riiiiight.
You would have your kittens stomped, your dogs shot, your wife would miscarry, and your house would be burned down around your ears if it came to confiscation, and you were stupid enough to be in your house when they came knocking.

If you think that retarded shit like this can't happen in the U.S.A., think again.

Reason #36 to join the NRA right now, no matter how much you think that the NRA sucks.

if i'm not mistaken, most bb guns are considered firearms in canada. if it can launch a projectile at more then 400fps(i think), it's connsidered a firearm and it must be registered.

at least that's what a candian citizen on another gun board said...

It's just a matter of time. When the right circumstances present themselves, we will see the same thing. Funny, people will not write a letter make a phone call go to the capitol or even join the NRA, GOA etc when we are winning. Then we are supposed to believe they are going to fight to the death for their gun rights. For the most part we aren't any better here.

These amnestys and buybacks happen in most major cities in North America

Next time a car is stolen and used in a crime we should propose a car buy back program. Turn in your cars and get a free ticket to the carnival.
