A National Firearms Amnesty will run for three months from 1 July to 30 September. This is your chance to dispose of a firearm without penalty.
If you live around the ACT you can take firearms to the ACT Firearms Registry, located at 86 Vicars Street, Mitchell, between 8:00am-1:00pm and 2:00pm-3:30pm on weekdays. You do not need to make an appointment to take in your firearms.
The ACT Firearms Registry may accept items which do not appear to be formally covered by the amnesty. If you have an item like this you would like to hand in during the amnesty period, please contact the ACT Firearms Registry to seek advice.
Under no circumstances should loaded firearms be taken into a public place, including a police station.
