As emailed to members last week, SSAA NSW have been in regular contact with the Firearms Registry regarding the requirement of completing attendances. SSAA NSW have sought exemptions for all SSAA NSW members at this time due to the escalating events regarding COVID-19.

We are expecting a decision to be made shortly in this regard and will communicate with all members once it is received.

We have been advised that there may be the need for a legislative fix in the form of a temporary amendment to allow registry to deviate from any requirements prescribed by the Act / Regulations.

SSAA NSW took the proactive step to advocate on your behalf almost three weeks ago as the trajectory of restrictions was getting worse in terms of social distancing. Firearms Registry have sought legal advice.

In the meantime, any licence holder who cannot comply with their annual shooting requirements can be assessed on a case by case basis.

As your peak Association, SSAA NSW took the lead on this issue for the benefit of all law abiding firearms owners and we expect a positive result soon.
