So that fourth one is a scarrrrrry photo.  I own some of those guns.   Where is this?  New Zealand?  Or is that from Australia a while back?

They all look like mostly shotguns, pump action specifically.  Might be military surplus or federal arms being phased out and replaced.  Note all the barrels appear to be bent.  To me it's a good sign they were bent intentionally to keep them from being "liberated".12075044_10207426402198903_1807147002434920498_n.jpg.4e845b082fd3f075588e5ee0c7ffab4c.jpg.26831e259d35e21e071612dd0b4f5e91.jpg

Tineye search returns show the image used in a Newsweek article, "Gun Control: What The US Can Learn From Other Advanced Countries" published in 2015.

 

Photo is attributed to Reuters and the caption reads:

 

"A truck unloads prohibited firearms at a scrapmetal yard in Sydney, July 29, 1997, where they were taken to be destroyed as part of an Australian government buy-back scheme. The scheme was set-up due to tighter gun laws brought in after the April 1996 Port Arthur massacre in which 35 people died when a lone gunman went on a shooting rampage."
