A report released yesterday by New South Wales Police announced the imminent destruction of almost 3000 firearms this month alone.

Every week hundreds of firearms are located and collected by police, which are then audited and processed for destruction.

In this latest report, NSW police say they were led to an abandoned property where they uncovered a haul of 2809 firearms, with a total net weight of around 3228kg.

The current police firearms seizure, which is marked for destruction, includes pistols, rifles, shotguns, military firearms, homemade firearms, airsoft gel blasters, air pistols, and air rifles.

The weapons seized and gathered by the police, will be melted down into steel and poured into other items.

Police Commissioner Karen Webb said that every firearm destroyed is a ‘win for police and the community.”

“Some of these items are collected through long-term, complex criminal investigations, and others are located through isolated search warrants and police incidents,” she said.

“By destroying these weapons, we prevent any that are kept for legitimate purposes from falling into the wrong hands and used in other crimes.”

Deputy Premier and Minister for Police Paul Toole said that regular seizures of firearms, ammunition, and other weapons would continue as police crackdown further on illegal activity.

“We know the vast majority of those in our community possess firearms for a valid reason – and then there are those who use these weapons to inflict fear and cause serious harm to others,” Mr Tool said.

The Deputy Premier said police are committed to keeping these weapons off the street in an effort to keep the community safe.
