TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House Category D firearms that are used in international sporting shooter events are restricted to professional shooters and do not include individuals that would use such firearms in legitimate and organised club shooting events.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to make Category D weapons available to sporting shooters to be owned, stored and operated by approved individuals to compete in club organised competitions. It is proposed that all individuals approved to own a Category D firearm and in the possession of Category D firearms for the purpose of sports shooting will keep and maintain a year to year participation record, as well as follow all licencing rules and requirements that allow sporting shooters to own, store and operate Category H firearms through their respective clubs, to stay compliant with Queensland weaponry requirements.
