Farewell to Arms
The MoI sees 'Farewell to Arms' as the most successful programme in Croatia so far.
Between 22 February 2001 and 31 December 2002, 6,574 weapons were collected, 67,333 items of explosive ordnance, 2.3 million rounds of ammunition, and 3,748 kg of explosives.
An interesting detail is that one third of the weapons were collected within the last two weeks.
In addition, about 11,064 requests for legal registration of firearms were submitted.
