Crime warning over gun laws

Postby deja vu on Sat Sep 27, 2008 2:32 pm

CHANGES to gun laws will make it easier for people to gain access to firearms from October 1.

But while shooting clubs expect more people to be attracted to the sport, critics say the amendments
will lead to more high-powered weapons and gun crime.

The Shooters Party-initiated bill allows more exemptions for people, including minors, without a
licence to participate at shooting clubs.

The law, passed with the support of the Government and Coalition, also removes the 28-day waiting
period for licence-holders buying additional guns and renewing permits.
