Illegal firearms campaign success

Posted in Success Stories

Illegal firearms campaign helps make our communities safer.

Across WA and around Australia, our illegal firearms campaign increased awareness, education and action towards ‘no illegal guns’.

In WA, over 2,000 firearms have been surrendered or seized by police and over 51,500 rounds of ammunition.  In Australia over 15,000 firearms have been handed in or seized.

That represents a significant reduction in the potential for firearms-related harm in the community.

The campaign involved a permanent amnesty to hand in unregistered or illegal firearms followed by a message to the public to ‘say something before it’s too late’ and report any illegal or unregistered firearms to Crime Stoppers or police.
