The ISMBFG line is handcrafted and made exclusively from materials sourced from local women's prisons in Canada.
So I’m hiding a gun for my boyfriend. Big deal. I haven’t done anything wrong with it.
Holding a gun without a license is a criminal offence.
What’s the penalty for hiding a gun?
Penalties vary. Every gun has a different history. It could mean significant time in prison or a large fine
I don’t want to hide my boyfriend’s gun, but I’m afraid of what he might do if I say no. What do I do?
If you or someone you know is being pressured to hide a weapon, you can report it anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), solvecrime.ca. or download the P3 Tips app.
What’s the worst that could happen?
The worst-case scenario is not going to prison. Jessica Iles, Brianna Kinnear, Mandie Johnson and Nicole Alemy, all murdered, are just a few of the women who have paid the ultimate price for getting involved with gang members. It is estimated that 1/3 of women experience intimate partner violence in their life time.
I have my boyfriend’s gun. I want to get rid of it. How can I do that?
