Proper Firearm Disposal in Colorado
When residents have firearms or ammunition that they wish to get rid of, they are supposed to report it to local law enforcement and either drop it off at their police station, or wait for an officer to come by their location and take care of it. If a firearm is disposed of in another way, you could be charged with criminal disposal of a firearm.
