Home Hill Observer
14 February 2013
A firearms amnesty has been launched over three months to allow those with unregistered firearms to surrender or register the weapons.
Residents from across the Burdekin are being encouraged to hand in their unlicensed weapons, or register them at their local firearms dealer…
"Since the amnesty began on February 1, we have seen more than 310 firearms surrendered or handed in to be registered," Mr Dempsey said.
"The amnesty gives those who are trying to comply with the law the opportunity to register or surrender any unregistered firearms they may have.
"Those wishing to take advantage of the amnesty can do so at registered firearms dealers or their local police station…"
"The amnesty, which ends on April 30, 2013, allows firearm owners who have an unregistered firearm to register it under their current licence," Assistant Commissioner MacDonald said.
