First firearms collection event this weekend in Christchurch

The first firearms collection event takes place at Riccarton Racecourse this Saturday 13 July and Sunday 14 July, providing firearms owners the initial opportunity of many to hand-in prohibited firearms for buy-back and amnesty.

This is one of 258 events that will run across the country over the next 3 months.

Deputy Commissioner Mike Clement says Police recognise this is a big change for the law abiding firearms community. “We want to work with firearms owners to make this process as seamless as possible during the buy-back and amnesty period.”
