Civil Society AVRP [Armed Violence Reduction and Prevention] Programming

[T]he very first amnesty was held in December 1994; although it lasted only 24 hours, it led to the recovery of some 900 firearms and raised awareness of the issue (Kirsten, 2008, p. 33). Subsequent amnesties in 2004-05 and 2010 recovered about 100,000 and 42,000 guns, respectively (South African Parliament, 2012; Kirsten, 2007).
