The New Zealand government has purchased more than 10,000 firearms in less than a month as part of the arms repurchase plan after the massacre of Christ Church mosques in March.

Russian media outlet reported on Monday that 10,242 firearms were handed over to the police, while an additional 1,269 weapons were handed over under the amnesty, which means no questions asked by the police about when or how the owner obtained the weapons.

New Zealand, in mid-July, launched a six-month plan that has allocated an estimated millions of dollars to buy semi-automatic weapons from citizens as part of its measures to prevent a repeat of the “massacre of mosques.”

New Zealand Finance Minister Grant Robertson and Police Minister Stuart Nash have announced in a joint statement that the government has allocated NZ $ 208 million to compensate the owners of these weapons by up to 95% of their original price, giving them until December 20 to hand them over to the authorities.
