The police have called a six-month long firearms amnesty during which people can surrender unlicensed weapons without fear of reprisals. It is the fourth such amnesty since 1996 and each undertaking still nets a considerable amount of weapons. During the last amnesty in 2009 people surrendered over 7,000 illegally held firearms. The amnesty enables people to legalize their weapons after they have been inspected by experts. The amnesty is in force from July 1st until the end of the year.
