Amnesty nets 20 firearms

During the last few days of the Rotary Club’s gun amnesty campaign, a member of the public found 95 rounds of ammunition of various calibres and handed it over to police.

In addition, a private citizen who has a firearms permit handed over a .22 calibre handgun with 340 rounds of .22 ammunition, police said. A .32 calibre handgun and 73 rounds of .32 ammunition were also handed over to the Police under the amnesty program.

On the last evening of the gun amnesty, a 12 gauge shotgun without ammunition was turned into police at 10 pm.

This brings the total firearms handed into police under the Rotary Club’s Ceasefire programme to 20 – 19 in Grand Cayman and one on Cayman Brac.

‘The Rotary Club gun amnesty has been a great success and we have managed to take 20 guns out of circulation on the Cayman Islands. The RCIPS will now move forward with a planned enforcement phase,’ RCIP Police Commissioner Stuart Kernohan said in a press release.
