Western Australia needs public safety, not paperwork

 Western Australia already has the toughest firearm laws in Australia. That is no excuse for complacency, and the laws should be brought up to date. However, to be truly effective, to promote public safety instead of paperwork, the Bill should integrate the findings of the Law Reform Commission of 2016, and it should take account of experts in the field. Most importantly, the government should not block proper scrutiny of the Bill, and it should not trample on the rights of WA citizens.

Instead of law reform that will promote public safety, the government has advanced a Bill based on ideology instead of evidence. It is written without an adequate understanding of firearms, and it expects the Bill to be enforced by police the government cannot recruit, using resources they do not have.

Doing nothing for public safety but spending millions on paperwork!

...  If the government was sincere about public safety, it would not rush through flawed legislation and block scrutiny of the Bill. It would be look at firearms reform as part of a more important reform of our state’s approach to violence, especially domestic violence.
