The Final Hour
Australians turn in 26,000 guns in national amnesty
began on 1 July
to help counter a growing terrorism threat and an influx of arms in the country.
It is illegal to own an unregistered firearm in Australia.
Those caught outside the amnesty period face fines of up to A$280,000 (£172,000, $225,000) and up to 14 years in jail.
The current programme, running until 30 September, means Australians can surrender unregistered firearms and related items without fear of prosecution.
