Police arrange firearm amnesty in NSW

A statewide firearms amnesty is being launched in NSW, following the success of last year's national campaign.

During the national amnesty, more than 26,700 firearms and firearm-related items were handed in for destruction, sale and registration in NSW.

The success has prompted another operation to further reduce the number of unregistered and unwanted firearms in the community and anyone with an unregistered firearm or firearm-related item in their possession will have the chance to legally dispose, or register it without penalty between July 1 and September 30 2018, police said.
