On behalf of all legal firearms owners in NSW, we urge you to sign this online petition to oppose the unintended consequences of the Firearms and Weapons Legislation (Criminal Use) Bill 2020. This Bill will have significant impact on you.
The Bill will criminalise the current activities of legal firearms owners and we need your help and immediate action to amend the Bill. Your support is extremely important, as the petition needs 20,000 signatures for this issue to be debated on the floor of Parliament.

This ePetition follows the strong advocacy from SSAA NSW against the unintended consequences of the Bill. SSAA NSW has undertaken a number of steps to remove the unintended consequences from the Bill. This includes a detailed submission to the NSW Government and an appearance/presentation of evidence to the Legislative Council Upper House Inquiry.
The Inquiry was instigated and chaired by the Hon. Robert Borsak, who first brought this issue to the attention of the shooting sports and has argued against the unintended consequences of the Bill in Parliament.
SSAA NSW has also met with Members of Parliament from the Upper and Lower House to request support in our opposition to the Bill. SSAA NSW extends an invitation to all industry bodies and organisations to join together in opposing the unintended consequences of this Bill.
