Orangeville Firearms Amnesty Nets Four Guns

The annual Firearms and Prohibited Weapons amnesty has come to an end in Orangeville. The annual program ran from April 1st to April 30th 2018. Orangeville Police say 4 guns were collected: 22 caliber handgun, a .22 caliber rifle and two 12 gauge shotguns. The goal of the annual program was to increase safety by reducing the number of unwanted or illegally owned firearms, prohibited weapons and ammunition in the community. This helps lessen the chance of having guns land in the hands of criminals from break-ins and thefts, or into the hands of curious youth. Police chief Wayne Kalinski said “We are pleased that this annual initiative continues to achieve the intended goal. We thank the members of the public for supporting this program and assisting our police service to help make Orangeville a safer community
