Annapolis Police collected 16 guns as part of a statewide gun turn-in day.
The police accpeted six handguns, five rifles, four shotguns and one air rifle during Saturday's event.
They also accepted 20 boxes of ammunition.
The police said the most common reasons for guns and ammunition to be turned in were that they belonged to a deceased person and the person no longer wanted them in their home.
The statewide gun turn-in was organized by the Office of the Attorney General. Guns were accepted with no questions asked. All guns were to be destroyed after being checked to see if they were stolen or used in a crime.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
