The PSP destroyed more than three thousand firearms and blank weapons confiscated in criminal proceedings, administrative proceedings or misconduct.

In a statement released on Friday, the PSP’s leadership says that 3129 weapons were destroyed on Tuesday in a specialized company after they were seized or given voluntarily to the state by their owners or advisers.

Guns, including pistols, revolvers, rifles, daggers, razors, swords, were destroyed because of their degradation as they were useless for operational, formative, cultural or museological activity of the security forces.

In 2016, the PSP carried out seven operations of destruction of arms, in a total of about 24,000 firearms and blank arms.
