What is the easiest and safest way to get rid of a shotgun in North Carolina?

I have my ex-husband's shotgun. We live in North Carolina, where he did not need a permit to purchase the gun. I believe they did a background check on him when he bought it.
I am now in possession of the shotgun and have his written consent to get rid of it in any way I deem appropriate. Neither of us wants the gun anymore. He does not want to deal with it and wants me to keep any of the money that I may make in its sale. I just want it out of my house and am willing to do whatever is easiest to get rid of it. I don't care about making money off of it. However, I obviously want to dispose of it safely. Is this something I can do? I have no paperwork or anything, just the shotgun itself.
I have no idea how to go about getting rid of the gun in a safe or reliable way. Googling is just leaving me confused.
Please don't tell me that it's my ex's problem and that he has to figure this out. This is not a relationship question. I just want this gun out of my home in the safest and quickest way possible at this point. Thanks.
