Rare heirloom firearms given up in amnesty


Australians have handed over more than 12,500 fireams during the first month of the national firearms amnesty.
Almost half of the unregistered firearms have been surrendered in New South Wales, with another 3500 given up by Queenslanders in the first national amnesty since 1996.
Guns handed in so far include heirlooms from World War One, World War Two and the Vietnam War and one rifle dating back to 1874, and the amnesty will continue until September 30. AAP
