Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders announced the results of the forces gun amnesty program that ran from November 2 to November 16.
The program allowed gun owners to turn in their old or unwanted weapons to police.
Saunders says they collected 86 long rifles, 22 hand guns and over 8,000 rounds of ammunition during the 14 day campaign.
He says a lot of the the people with these weapons “felt the firearms that they had in their possession, they were burdened,”
The chief says many of the older weapons were handed down from family members and “they didn’t know what to do with it”
