Air rifles, shotguns and knives handed in during amnesty

All Manx residents have a duty to ensure the Isle of Man is a safe place.

Air rifles, shotguns and hunting knives have all been handed in at police stations since the Manx force announced the amnesty last month.

Bins for weapons to be disposed of are available at the Island’s police stations.
