More than 400 unregistered, illegal or unwanted firearms have been surrendered to South Australian Police and firearms dealers in the first month of an amnesty…

The amnesty runs until June 30, 2016.

Gun dealers who are assisting with the amnesty are accepting weapons on behalf of police, holding the firearms to allow owners to obtain licences and are buying surrendered items from people who have a firearms licence.

The data:

- 444 firearms were surrendered
- 353 were taken to police stations
- 231 were surrendered outside of metropolitan Adelaide
- 55 firearms surrendered to dealers are being held pending approval for permits to acquire the firearm
