FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) Confidentiality is the idea behind Gun Amnesty Day, an event coming up next weekend where FWPD will collect guns.
The Fort Wayne Police Department (FWPD) is teaming up with the Fort Wayne Urban League, NAACP Fort Wayne Chapter, and Men of Action for Gun Amnesty Day.
Next Saturday (April 20), you can head to 2135 S. Hanna Street, at the Urban League parking lot, and turn in any ammunition and or guns, no questions asked.
There will also be a tip box on site for people to anonymously leave crime tips.
Police say the goal is not to disarm the innocent or law-abiding people by collecting guns, but to make the community safer.
These are the guns that you found at your house, may have taken away from your children, or nephews or whoever, and don't know what to do with it. Or you may be a widow and don't know what to do with it, and you say I have this gun laying around the house so instead of letting it lay around the house, bring it to us. We'll take it and dispose of it, and do the proper thing for you so you don't have to worry about it getting into the wrong hands, said Detective Timothy Russell with FWPD.
If you can't make it to the drop-off, you can arrange to have an officer come to your house to pick up the gun. Just call the Fort Wayne Police department at (260) 427-1222.

...i.e., If you know anyone who didn’t turn in their guns you can tattle on them and write down their name in this box.
Set up your own business.

It could operate 24/7... just have a sign that says “After hours, please slip guns and ammo through slot in door”.
I have gun amnesty day at my house 24/7, you are free to drop off any unwanted guns on my doorstep and I promise to give them a good home.
Widows turning hubby’s bring-back Luger from WW2, not knowing it’s worth a thousand bucks. Sad.
