Firearms Surrender Project


by Keith Meka

KENOSHA  - The County is joining four others in Wisconsin who are taking part in the Firearms Surrender Project. It requires people who have restraining orders against them to turn in their firearms. They will be able to get their weapons back after the restraining order expires. This adds an extra court hearing to the restraining order process to make sure the person is complying with the weapons restriction. The Sheriff's Department will handle a lot of the extra workload. The four other counties in the state already taking part in the Firearms Surrender Project report a 90% compliance rate.
