The Australian Government in 1996 approved the National Firearms Agreement, which is a list of recommendations made by the National Committee of Violence for state and territory governments to introduce laws that would ban or limit firearm use.
A review of the agreement is being finalised and we are working to ensure there are no further tightening of legislation regarding firearms unless it only affects criminals. We believe the Law Abiding Firearms Owners of Australia have given more than enough in their ability to use firearms, and there is no justification for taking any more privileges.
There are nearly a million licensed shooters in this country with more than 200,000 in Victoria alone. We can add to this the supportive family members, friends and people with enough common sense to realise that continually squeezing those who obey the law will not work.
