If I have a weapon what should I do?

You should ring 101 and make arrangements with the police. They will either direct you to a nominated police station or arrange for its collection. You do not have to give the police any information about yourself or the weapon if you do not wish to.

Will I face prosecution?

You will not be prosecuted for possessing the weapon/ammunition at the point of handover. However, it may be inspected further to see whether it can be connected to any criminal offences. If the weapon has been used in criminal activity, this will give rise to further investigation, and the amnesty will not prevent the police pursuing people for those offences.
