“Help us protect this city and its people:” BPD has taken more than 2,000 #firearms off the streets of the Magic City in 2020 alone.

There are many ways people obtain guns illegally. One of the easiest ways is when gun owners fail to secure their firearms properly. For example, it can take less than 10 seconds for someone to open an unlocked car and remove a firearm left inside. These firearms can then be used to commit a host of #violent #crimes.
