Firearm collection events will be held in Tauranga this weekend, providing firearm owners an opportunity to hand in their prohibited firearms and parts for buyback.

It's also a chance for anyone to hand in any firearm or part – no questions asked – under amnesty.

If you hand in firearms and parts under amnesty no personal details will be recorded as the amnesty is entirely anonymous.

If you do want to hand in firearms or parts for buyback, please complete the online form at www.police.govt.nz before coming to an event, including listing each firearm and/or each individual part you are bringing along.
