Amnesty Law

When a Pistol Permit Holder is deceased, the executer or administrator of the estate must dispose of the handguns within 15 days to a dealer, a valid Pistol Permit Holder, or any Police Department.  The issuing agency must be provided with transfer documentation and a certificate of death.

Any person that is in possession of an unregistered gun may voluntarily surrender it to any Police Department (under the Police Departments terms) and will be granted amnesty from prosecution for Unlawful Possession of an illegal firearm. Before you surrender a firearm in this manner you must contact the Police Agency you wish to surrender the firearm to.

Firearm Safety

  • Treat every firearm as if it was loaded.

  • Always keep the muzzle pointed in a safe direction.

  • Always keep your finger off the trigger and outside the trigger guard unless you intend to fire the weapon.
