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

Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House that in 2019 the Queensland Government introduced the Human Rights Act 2019. Section 16 of this Act is the right to life. This section places duties on public entities to take steps to protect the lives of Queenslanders including in their policy and decision making.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to amend legislation and follow the example of Western Australia where pepper spray is a controlled weapon and is legal to own and use for the purpose of self-defence.
