National Firearms Amnesty 2017
Australia’s National Firearms Amnesty runs from 1 July to 30 September 2017. The aim of the amnesty is to improve public safety by reducing the number of unregistered firearms and firearm-related articles in our community. If you have an unregistered firearm, you may be able to register or sell it during the amnesty—no questions asked. If you cannot or do not want to register or sell your firearm, you can hand it in at an approved location. Arrangements for how you can participate in the amnesty will depend on where you live. For more information, visit https://firearmsamnesty.ag.gov.au and navigate to your state or territory. If you are found in possession of unregistered firearms, you risk a fine of up to $280,000, 14 years in jail and a criminal record.
The Firearms Amnesty National Hotline number is 1800 909 826.
