Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House Queensland lawful firearm owners seek more sensible and fair firearm laws. In recent times the Queensland Government noted the important role that lawful firearm owners play in assisting the rural community when they made concessions to gun shop closures for recreational firearm licence holders to buy ammunition and firearms if they held approval from a primary producer to conduct shooting for primary production purposes such as pest control and stock management.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to make immediate changes to the Queensland Weapons Act and Regulations to allow lawful and licenced firearm owners to acquire and use the same weapons already available to primary producers for the purposes of pest management. This would see recreational shooters being permitted to own and use category H, C and D firearms for pest control.
