NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell has announced the Firearms Amendment (Ammunition Control) Bill 2012 which will impose new restrictions on the sale of ammunition to law-abiding firearm owners and additional onerous record keeping requirements for firearm dealers ( See Bill here: http://goo.gl/uy2q5 ).
This Bill will do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to reduce drive-by shootings by CRIMINALS in Sydney.
What it will do is:
(1) inconvenience tens of thousands of LAW-ABIDING FIREARM OWNERS, particularly in the bush,
(2) drive firearm dealers to the wall with the added paperwork, and
(3) breach Mr O'Farrell's pledge to reduce red tape for businesses and the community by 20% by June 2015 ( http://goo.gl/bSOhQ ).
We the undersigned call on NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell to immediately withdraw the Firearms Amendment (Ammunition Control) Bill 2012.
