(3) How long is this amnesty expected to be in effect.

(4) Has the number of illegal firearms seized in the ACT had an impact on planning for the next firearms amnesty.

Mr Gentleman: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(1) Between 1 January 2018 – 30 June 2018, ACT Policing seized 76 illegal firearms. Seizures include firearms seized by police in police operations as well as firearms voluntarily surrendered. The breakdown of these seizures is provided at ‘Attachment A’. The table shows a higher number of seizures in 2017 reflecting the most recent amnesty.

(2) No firearms amnesty is scheduled in the immediate future. The most recent amnesty period was available to members of the public less than 12 months ago. It was held between 1 July 2017 and 30 September 2017.

(3) This question does not arise (see answer to (2)).

(4) No. Members of the public are able to lawfully surrender unregistered firearms, in the event they acquire these, to ACT Policing or a licenced firearms dealer, and are legally obliged to do so as soon as possible.
