Why a firearms surrender

Guns made safeWhy are we doing this?

We want to take out of circulation any type of firearm and ammunition and make our communities safer.

  • Guns which can still be fired
  • Antique or unwanted collectible weapons
  • Trophies of war
  • Replica weapons
  • Air weapons
  • BB guns
  • Stun guns
  • Ammunition which is no longer required

This is an opportunity to surrender firearms and not be charged with illegal possession. Outside of the surrender period if police find you in possession of a firearm for which you do not have a license then you could receive a mandatory five year prison sentence.

If you have even a shadow of doubt about the legality of a weapon or ammunition that you possess we urge you to hand it in during the surrender. (*see note on previous convictions)

If you know of people involved in illegal firearms activity contact the police or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
