Amnesty for gun owners

ANNIE, get yer gun - but make sure you register it with Coffs Harbour Police first.

NSW Police are running a three-month Firearm Amnesty to encourage people who have unregistered firearms to surrender or register them before May 31.

Owners of illegal firearms can hand them in with no questions asked, no penalties given and anonymity guaranteed as part of the amnesty designed to 'take guns out of the equation'.

Assistant commissioner David Hudson said the purpose of the amnesty was to keep the community safe by taking unregistered firearms off the streets and ensuring that legally allowed firearms are stored safely.

“Any sort of firearm is extremely dangerous if misused or in the hands of the wrong people, which can all lead to fatalities,” Mr Hudson said.

The amnesty started yesterday and runs until May 31.
