Protecting your rights - Letter from the NFDA
The National Firearm Dealers Association Inc. are calling for action from all firearm owners. Please see below for their letter regarding this or download it here.
What recommendations will your State Police put to the Federal Justice Minister’s NFA Review?
It is now apparent that recommendations from state police agencies to the National Firearms Agreement (NFA) review will be tabled at a meeting of the Law, Crime and Community Safety Council (LCCSC), likely to be held in October this year.
Recommendations from the jurisdictions to this review have been shrouded in secrecy and neither industry or recreational organisations have been consulted in what appears to be a deliberate ploy by police and public servants.
What is known, is that discussions regarding classification of lever action shotguns, magazine capacity and storage will likely be included in recommendations to the review.
There is every possibility that changes to the NFA could lead to compulsory confiscation of some firearms.
It cannot be overstated what may happen here. It is requested that all firearm owners write to their State Police Ministers and request to be advised of the recommendations they will be putting forward to the review. It is also important to copy this correspondence to your local State and Federal parliamentary members, or better still, meet your local members face to face.
This is the biggest threat to licensed law abiding firearm owners since the 1996-gun confiscation.
Experience shows that decisions which are made without full and open consultation with firearm owners and industry, and which are not based on sound verifiable evidence, invariably impact negatively on us.
It is critical that we make our concerns known loudly and decisively.
Remember to be polite and respectful, the purpose of these letters is to ask for genuine consultation, not to attack people or score points.
