Collection events are being held around New Zealand during the amnesty and is the preferred way for people to hand in their newly prohibited firearms and parts.
Safety is very important – before coming to a collection event, remember to clear firearms of all ammunition and place firearms and parts in a safe carry bag, such as a firearms bag, or a nondescript cover.
When you come to a collection event, please bring the following with you:
Your online notification reference number (if you have notified online already)
Your firearms licence (if applicable)
Your bank account number
Photo identification (drivers licence or passport)
All your prohibited firearms and parts, cleared of all ammunition
Any other firearm/s or parts you wish to hand-in to Police for destruction

So we must hire experts and lawyers who are setting up systems to ensure that our efforts and communications are timely, effective and professional. We have built this website to ensure our information is not censored or misrepresented by individuals or organisations with their own agendas.
We will need people full time to research and to respond to your questions, to record stories, suggestions and to ensure we capture email addresses.
