Gun buy-back event planned for Tauranga
Tauranga firearm owners are being encouraged to hand in their prohibited firearm/s and parts for buyback this weekend.
It’s also a chance for anyone to hand-in any firearm or part – no questions asked – under amnesty, says a police spokesperson.
“If you hand-in firearm/s and parts under amnesty no personal details will be recorded as the amnesty is entirely anonymous.
“If you do want to hand-in firearm/s 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.”
The details of the events are:
Friday 30 August-Sunday 1 September: Tauranga – Stadium Lounge, Bay Park, Tauranga, from 9am-1pm.
Police want to thank the firearm community for their positive response to the collection events so far, and look forward to welcoming the Tauranga firearms community to a collection event.
