Making the Newport area just a little bit safer…

It's estimated there are enough guns in this country for every man woman and child to have one from the Pacific to the Atlantic - and yet they're still pouring out of munitions factories.

It’s estimated there are enough guns in this country for every man woman and child to have one from the Pacific to the Atlantic – and yet they’re still pouring out of gun factories.

In cooperation with Central Coast Cease Fire, the Newport Police Department conducted a ‘no questions asked’ public gun turn-in which produced a total of 138 firearms. The number included 18 shotguns, 18 rifles, 35 semi-auto pistols, and 67 revolvers.

Of note, of the total number of firearms turned in, one was an assault rifle and two were sawed-off shotguns.

Ninety-five 95 high capacity magazines and ammunition were also turned over to police. Serial numbers on the firearms will be checked against state and federal data bases. Any stolen firearms will be sent to the police agency that reported the weapon stolen. There may be two or three firearms that are museum quality and notices will go out to accredited museums to see if they may be interested in them.

Persons turning in weapons were given gift certificates redeemable at local stores.

Once all gun serial numbers are checked, the firearms, along with ammunition and magazines, will be boxed and shipped to the burn plant in Brooks, Oregon for destruction.

Chief Mark Miranda said “I am impressed with the amount of firearms turned into the Police Department, and consider this project a success. We will look at doing another project such as this next year.”

During the year, any unwanted firearm, or ammunition may still be turned into the Police Department. The front office is open from 8am to 5pm, Monday thru Friday, excluding holidays, or any Newport Police officer may be contacted.
