New Zealand’s firearms regulator

In the right hands with the right safety measures, firearms are an important tool. But without good practices and sensible precautions, they pose a real risk to others.

Our mission at Te Tari Pūreke – Firearms Safety Authority is to make firearms use in Aotearoa the safest in the world. We do this by effectively regulating firearms use and possession to help keep our communities safe.
