The Australian Government

Help re-legalise semi automaic .22 caliber rifles as well as semi automatic and pump action shotguns in Australia, for the use of hunting and target shooting by responisble, licenced Sporting Shooters.

Banning these firearms in 1996 has had absolutely no effect on the rate of murders involving firearms or on the rate of armed robberies using a firearm.

The Howard government spent more than $500Million on a "buy back" to try and prevent shooters from enjoying the sport they love - money which could have been invested in a worthwhile cause, such as improving the mental helath system.

We, the undersigned, say bring back Semi automatic .22 caliber rifles and semi automatic/pump action shotguns in Australia - for use by safe, responsible law abiding Sporting Shooters!
