Attention all WA members.Here we go with another petition team – albeit an extremely important one !We must get our numbers on as we push forward again and tell the government that we demand the proposed firearmbill be scrutinised by a bilateral Legislative Committee where the parliament can interrogate all aspects of the bill.By now you would have seen the intent of the bill is clearly NOT aimed at the criminal elements of our society but blatantly attacks law abiding firearm owners with unprecedented arbitrary firearms limits, and unworkable property approval restrictions in addition to the overreaching property use proposals and unnecessary minimum use requirements, all being piled on top of an unjustifiable scrutiny of West Australians personal beliefs and living circumstances.It's important we get all current and future firearms users to sign this petition ASAP.Many thanks to long standing advocate Rick Mazza for lodging the petition and the Hon Nick Goiran MLC who will read it in. www.parliament.wa.gov.au/Parliament/LCePetitions.nsf/petitions/24-0016 See MoreSee Less

Recreational hunters play a key role in helping landowners control pest animals and reduce environmental impacts.The whole reason SSAA Farmer Assist exists is to connect landowners with hunters to help with this mammoth task.The role of the hunter is under threat in WA, where the WA Government has plans to restrict law-abiding firearm owners and landowners from managing their relationships and firearm use, responsibly as they have always done.WA firearm owners can get more information via Western Australian Firearms Community Alliance – WAFCA and Sporting Shooters Association Of Australia WA Inc.

The Australian Shooter will be made available as both a digital and print publication from October, allowing SSAA’s state and territory members to choose how they engage with the Association.All members will receive the Australian Shooter in the new digital format, but those wishing to maintain their print copy of the magazine will need to pay an additional $15 annual fee (equating to $1.35 per print edition). This fee directly covers postage and printing costs that have increased significantly in the past three years and are forecast to continue this trend.READ MORE: www.ssaa.org.au/?ss_news=ssaa-fee-update-and-the-australian-shooter-goes-digital See MoreSee Less
