AHPA is pleased to have joined the Australian Gun Safety Alliance
The Alliance has the following objectives:
• Have all jurisdictions comply with the 2017 National Firearms Agreement
• Increase public awareness of the poor compliance by all governments and hold them to account for their non-compliance
• In order to bring understanding and change, contribute to a balanced public conversation about the importance of a strong gun safety framework.
There is a lot happening in this space. Here’s a recent update:
The Tasmania House of Assembly Select Committee on Firearms Legislation and Policy has advertised for submissions.
The advertised Terms of Reference etc can be found here.
A submission will be made confirming concerns about the process undertaken and also encouraging the Tasmanian government to set a high standard by fully complying with the NFA rather than considering watering it down. The closing date is Friday 26 October 2018.
Follow the Alliance on Twitter @AustGunSafety and see the Alliance website for more information.
