[efoods]Toronto police have seized 400 guns from law-abiding owners whose licences had expired or been revoked.
Project Safe City saw police seize unlicensed guns within Toronto. Owners were given the option to pay to renew their licences and pick them up again, or to forfeit the weapon. The 400 guns shown yesterday were forfeited. None of the owners were charged.
“This is a crime-prevention initiative,” said Superintendent Greg Getty of Toronto’s guns and gangs unit.
