Gun and Fireworks Amnesty Day a Success
Omaha, NE - Dozens of guns, loads of ammunition, and even some fireworks were handed over as part of Gun and Fireworks Amnesty Day. Officers collected a total of 47 firearms and several explosive devices. Police say getting the guns off the streets is a priority in keeping the city safe.
"We’ve got people out there storing these things near where children can play with them children and can get their hands on them,” said Omaha Police Sergeant Matt Manhart. Accidents happen but turning it into us and letting us handle them we can put an end to that.”
The guns will be checked to see if they were used in any crimes before being destroyed.
