Around 70 weapons taken off Mississauga and Brampton streets during gun amnesty.

The Spring Gun Amnesty program ended with 69 firearms and six edged weapons being turned in by Peel residents along with 75 pounds of ammunition.

The program, which ran throughout May and provided Mississauga and Brampton residents a “controlled and safe opportunity” to surrender unwanted firearms and ammunition for destruction, was spearheaded by the force’s Street Crime Gang Unit.

These numbers are way down from 2015, when more than 300 guns were turned in.
