      It is one of MPD’s main goals to safely remove illegal firearms from DC streets to reduce crime and the fear of crime in the community. The responsibility to recover firearms falls on the shoulders of all MPD officers.  We also thank members of the community for their help in creating safe neighborhoods.

      The Metropolitan Police Department also recovers firearms with the assistance of anonymous tips made through MPD’s anonymous tip line. Anyone who has information regarding gun recoveries should call police at 202-727-9099. Additionally, information may be submitted to the TEXT TIP LINE by text messaging 50411.”

  • The pictured pistol is probably similar to the “machine gun” that was spotted in Georgetown a few weeks ago. I assumed then that the extended clip probably gave the impression of some sort of automatic weapon to the witness.
