BREAKING NEWS: Palaszczuk to move lever action shotguns to Category D


The Palaszczuk Government to move on high-capacity shotguns following Los Vegas Shooting.

In news just in, Shooters Union have been advised that the current Queensland Labor government wants to silence the voice of thousands of sporting shooters, hunters and farmers by moving lever action shotguns to a restrictive Category D. This opportunistic political posturing by Labor in wake of the recent tragic event in Las Vegas is a disgrace. Law abiding firearm owners are constantly being targeted by Labor and your voice is needed to fight back.

Here’s a link to the ABC news coverage of the media release: https://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-10-10/lever-action-shotguns-reclassified-qld-from-2018/9032172?pfmredir=sm&WT.ac=statenews_qld

See the video above for Shooters Union Vice President, David Brown’s response and clarification of the new amendments.
