Buy-back and amnesty for prohibited firearms and parts

Eastern District Police

After changes to firearm laws, the government introduced a six month amnesty period. This means that anyone with firearms and parts that are no longer legal have until 20 December 2019 to hand them in to Police.

Police are providing a number of ways for people to hand-in their firearms or parts, including Police-run collection events - bit.ly...

If you can’t make a collection event, check whether there is a dealer near you - bit.ly...

If you think you have a unique prohibited item and are eligible to apply for compensation, find out how you can do that here - bit.ly...

Some firearms can also be modified and there is also a list of approved gunsmiths eligible to do the work - bit.ly...

FAQ’s here - bit.ly... or call 0800 311 311.

Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
