PGA WELCOMES FIREARMS ACT REVIEW

2015-01-27

Western Australia’s leading agricultural lobby group, the Pastoralists and Graziers Association (PGA) has welcomed the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia’s review into the Firearms Act 1973 (WA).

 

“Whether used for vermin control, dispatching sick or diseased stock, or for safety during mustering, firearms are important and necessary tools for West Australian farmers and pastoralists,” PGA President Tony Seabrook said.

 

“Because of this the PGA will be meeting with the Commission and placing a submission on the impact of the Firearms Act on our members,” he said.

 

“It is important that any review of the existing firearms legislation will not restrict the ability of farmers and pastoralists to acquire and safely use legal firearms in their daily activities, whilst ensuring the highest level of public safety.”
