UPDATE: Peel Police release results of their gun amnesty program
Peel Police have announced the results of their gun amnesty program, with numbers up significantly over last year's program.
And Peel doesn't pay for their guns.
Peel collected 129 guns through the month of May, and 269 pounds of ammunition. That works out to more than 10,000 individual rounds of bullets.
Compared to last year though, it's a jump of 380%.
And compared to Toronto, it's only a fraction of the total numbers. During Toronto's 3-week campaign, officers collected 2, 700 guns, with more than 800 of those handguns.
However, Toronto paid more than $660,000 to get those firearms.
There is one thing that both cities have in common; police say none of the guns collected have ever been used in crimes.
