Over 1200 guns given up in amnesty
MORE than 1200 guns were surrendered in WA during the three-month national gun amnesty, which ended on Saturday night.
Police Minister Michelle Roberts said there were now 1242 fewer illegal guns which no longer had the potential to fall into the hands of criminals.
“Disturbingly, among the surrendered items was an assortment of highpowered weapons and guns that had been modified, presumably for no other reason than criminal purposes,” she said.
“I’m pleased to say these are now on the way to the scrap heap.”
