Warwickshire Police joins firearm surrender campaign

Surrender firearms during national campaign West Mercia Police support national firearms surrender

The father and friends of Halton McCollin who was shot dead in Stretford in 2008 are urging people to "Give up the Gun" as Greater Manchester Police launches a firearms surrender.

Guns and ammunition, including replica firearms, BB guns and antique weapons, can be surrendered at designated police stations across the United Kingdom during the surrender.

Essentially, if anyone has received a suspended/custodial or youth detention sentence of more than three months but less than three years, they can not possess a firearm or ammunition for five years after release.

He said 3D-printed guns have not yet surfaced in Britain but he technology is there to print them not just in plastic but also in metal, which is more "robust".

Sussex Police Detective Chief Inspector Steve Rayland said: "If you have any guns or ammunition you no longer want, or if you don't know what to do with them or how to safely dispose of them, we can help". However, I'd urge everyone to take stock and consider whether they need all the firearms and ammunition they own and if not, take advantage of this surrender to hand them in to be safely and securely disposed of.

People surrendering firearms will not be required to leave any information but if police suspect a weapon may have been involved in a crime, they will examine it for evidence.

"Fortunately, any kind of gun crime is rare in West Mercia's policing areas, and I am committed to ensuring West Mercia Police have the resources to continue to protect our communities".

The amnesty comes less than a month after national figures revealed the number of crimes involving firearms in England and Wales increased by 27% to 6,696 in the year ending June 2017.

Officers, who are hoping for a similar success this year, say some people may hold firearms in innocence or ignorance of their illegality; or they may have older items in their homes which have been overlooked or forgotten.

Detective chief superintendent Jo Chilton, head of Nabis, said: "Perhaps you have a gun that has been handed down through the family or you have found a firearm in your loft or shed which has been gathering dust and you had forgotten about".

Launching the drive in the Northwest, Detective Chief Superintendent Mary Doyle, of Greater Manchester Police, said the public should be anxious about the supply of guns on the UK's streets.

"We know that the consequences of firearms or replica firearms falling into the wrong hands can be fatal and can cause real fear within our communities".

We've had incidents whereby innocent children have been caught in the crossfire.

"We have been quite amazed that within a few hours of this kicking off that we have had quite so much coming in so I think it does show that people are wanting us to provide this opportunity", Mr Kennett said. "Yes, you should be anxious".

Neither Wiltshire nor Hampshire Police will ask any questions about how you came to possess any of the weapons.

Richard Kennett, firearms licensing manager for Norfolk and Suffolk Constabularies, said the campaign had got off to a good start, with 14 guns already collected before lunchtime on Monday at police sites in Ipswich and Martlesham.
