It’s been 20 since Australia announced tight restrictions on gun ownership. Now, in the wake of a failed gun buyback program, the nation has admitted that more than a quarter of a million guns exist in the country that were never legally registered.
As a result, the nation has announced an amnesty in hopes that gun owners will part with their weapons.
“The amnesty will provide an opportunity for those individuals who, for whatever reason are in possession of an unregistered firearm, to hand it in without fear of being prosecuted,” Justice Minister Michael Keenan told reporters in Melbourne.
