You have the power to make a difference
Take action to save yourself and those you care about
Hand in a legal gun to be destroyed
If you have a firearm that you want to get rid of you can either sell it or have it destroyed – you are not allowed to destroy it yourself.
Remove a gun in a case of domestic violence
Any woman who lives in fear of a gun in her home can ask the magistrates court or the police to remove the gun immediately.
Help stop a gun-related suicide
Reducing access to lethal means is an effective way to increase the odds that a suicide attempt will end in care, not in death.
Make your space a gun-free zone
You can take action against gun violence by declaring your space – your home, your place of work, worship or study, even your car – a Gun Free Zone (GFZ).
Survive an incident of gun violence
If you've been shot or threatened by a gun, witnessed gun violence, or know someone who’s been killed, injured or threatened by a gun, you're a survivor of gun violence.
Deal with firearms in a deceased estate
If the owner of a firearm has died, the Firearms Control Act (2000) prescribes how the firearm must be dealt with by the heir.
Hold the police accountable
The police are supposed to protect the public from crime and violence, but some officers engage in unlawful behaviour such as corruption, brutality and torture. Holding police officers accountable for wrongdoing is therefore essential.
