    Amnesty program a hit

    Police services province-wide wrapped up the Gun Amnesty program Tuesday, Oct. 31. The program ran from Oct.1-31 and gave citizens the opportunity to turn in weapons and not face charges if they were un-registered.
    Official numbers were not ready at press time, but Cochrane RCMP had over 24 individuals turning in 52 weapons.
    Cochrane RCMP Sgt. Audrey Robinson fully supports the program.

    “I was expecting that we would have more, but it is great to see people that haven’t used these guns or have no further use for them are getting them safely out of their home, they are not going to fall into the wrong hands,” said Robinson.
    Sgt. Bill Eubank of the Cochrane RCMP has seen some pretty interesting weapons come through the program.
    “The most unique one that I have heard of, but I haven’t seen it personally was a weapon seized in the First World War from a Germany officer with a Swastika on the holster,” said Eubank. :ugh: I hadn't realized we fought the nazi's in the first world war. Must be why they bombed pearl harbor. :hsugh:
    “One of them that was turned in was a Royal North West Mounted Police rifle,” said Eubank estimating it to be 135 years old.

    Brilliant, We'll go to DC and NYC and offer to take the guns out of those areas no questions asked, hell we'll even offer to pay 25-75 bucks a gun or 25 over any buyback offering.

    Wow! 24 people in a 30 day period, what a resounding success! This is an obvious and clear signal to the lawmakers of Canada that their consitutuancy absolutely abhores the thought of private gun ownership, and are doing everything in their power to remove these vile weapons from their communities with the utmost haste. It is virtually a mandate to eliminate private ownership entirely.

    or as the media will spin it, there were so few guns turned in because the program has worked so well there are very few guns left out there.
