Gardaí in Kildare are appealing for gun owners to renew their licences.
This follows the seizure of 5 firearms this morning because the owner had failed to renew his licences for them.
Superintendent Martin Walker of the Kildare Division said that they've noticed this has become a common occurrence.
He is now asking the public to license their firearms or renew their licences fully in a timely manner.
Speaking to Kfm, Walker said he is "going to seize every unlicensed gun in South Kildare" otherwise.
