SSAA National interviewed about upcoming national firearms amnesty

Details of the national firearms amnesty – first floated by the Federal Government in October last year – have finally been unveiled. According to Justice Minister Michael Keenan, the amnesty will allow those in possession of an unregistered firearm to either register the firearm free of charge and without prosecution, or hand it in at a number of designated locations.

SSAA National President Geoff Jones and CEO Tim Bannister recently featured in a series of interviews with the ABC about the amnesty. Tim encouraged people to register or sell their unregistered firearms through licensed firearm dealers, while Geoff made it clear that it won’t make criminals hand in their illegal guns.
