Although multiple guns can be turn in to be melted down, Gift Cards are only available for three firearms.
Since 1994, Ceasefire Oregon has conducted turn-ins, collecting almost 10,000 firearms. When does a gun become “unwanted” and why would someone voluntarily give up a gun? Young, curious children are at your home. Someone in your family, friend or neighbor is suffering from depression. The firearm cannot be properly stored. You inherited the gun. You no longer hunt. An earlier occupant of the house left the gun. Regardless of the reason to ensure the gun is out of circulation bring it to the Newport Police Department on February 3rd, 10am – 2pm.
