Don’t let your unwanted gun get destroyed

Re: Amnesty offers chance to surrender firearms, Oct. 14
The Delta Police Department’s gun amnesty offer is nothing new, nor should it be a cause for concern amongst firearms owners.
Silvercore Training, headquartered in Delta and Canada’s largest firearms training company, has been offering the same service throughout the Lower Mainland since 2004. We want the public to know there is no time constraint to legally turn over firearms and ammunition to Silvercore.
Over the years, Silvercore has received hundreds of unwanted firearms, magazines and accessories from multiple local law enforcement agencies, which in turn are deactivated and made into inert training aids for use in our courses.
Unfortunately, changes in Canada’s public agency regulations now require law enforcement agencies to immediately destroy the firearms they receive. Instead of allowing this to happen, you can donate any firearm, magazine, accessory or ammunition in your possession to Silvercore.
Silvercore will take care of all legal transfers, paperwork and transportation of firearms. Rather than destroying any guns collected, we deactivate them so they cannot be fired and put them to use educating a growing and vibrant community of new firearm owners. In this way, we are able to build on Delta’s rich history of hunting and firearms ownership.
Do not attempt to transfer the firearms or ammunition on your own. You can call Silvercore at 604-940-7785 and a federally licensed business representative will take care of any unwanted firearms.
Do not allow your firearms to be destroyed through confiscation or surrender, but let them serve the public by educating the next generation of firearms owners on safety.
