The program to reduce gun violence by promoting photography is called “Pixels for Pistols” and it aims to take guns off the streets by issuing a free Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH8 point-and-shoot camera to anyone who turns in a working firearm to the Winnipeg Police Service. Since the start of the month-long program on November 1, the department has already collected several hundred weapons and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

“We’re recovering firearms by the hour,” says Jason Michalyshen, the spokesman for Winnipeg Police Service.
