Firearm Laws

Repeal the worst

We oppose the new Firearms Act as we believe it unfairly targets law abiding firearms owners based on ideology. We do not think there was a problem with WA firearm culture or gun ownership, and recognise the importance of firearms for recreation, which often also assists conservation and animal welfare efforts across our vast state. We will stand up for all WA shooters, not only those in the country.

We believe the previous firearms act should have been enforced better by providing proper resourcing and training to front line officers, as well as the provision of a fit-for-purpose IT system to enable officers to do their job. We will support the repeal the parts of the firearms act that are designed to take your firearms away from you, which were not consistent with the recommendations of the Law Reform Commission.
