New Zealand Gun Owners Surrender Over 10,000 Firearms After Christchurch Attack

More than 10,000 firearms have been voluntarily surrendered to authorities in New Zealand as part of the government’s gun buyback program launched last month in response to the March mass shootings at two mosques in Christchurch.

The initiative, which kicked off on July 13 and will last through Dec. 20, allows owners of semiautomatic weapons and parts banned following the Christchurch attack to exchange them for money. More than 250 gun collection events have been planned around the country during the program’s first three months.
