October 13, 2017

Queensland's government has hailed the gun amnesty a success after 16,000 firearms were handed in.

Queenslanders have handed in more than 16,000 firearms as part of the national gun amnesty.

The state government now says the quantity of the cache shows people support its plan to tighten weapons regulations.

"Queenslanders want our state to be a safe place, and the Palaszczuk government is committed to ensuring that is a reality," police minister Mark Ryan said in a statement on Friday.
