There are growing concerns about who will have access to My Health Record and it seems certain that government agencies will be able to source personal information. This includes Weapons
Licensing Branch. We know of one dealer who reported to police that he had had a heart attack. As a response, all his licences were suspended, pending his provision of proof of his fitness to hold a
licence. His heart attack was relatively minor and he recovered well. A minor bout of depression is now considered a “mental illness”, so it is not only conceivable but quite likely that any application for a new licence or PTA would involve a search of the My Health Record database to check for any health information which, in the opinion of police, would render the applicant unfit to hold a licence.
Shooters Union Australia is a not for profit organisation which represents thousands of firearms owners and users across Australia. We are actively involved in the political scene, lobbying against the unfair, unreasonable and unconstitutional vilification of firearms owners at every level of government. Our aim is to work towards a co-operative system of effective gun control, and together we are affecting positive change on firearm legislation in Australia. Help us to change the social dialogue around firearms, firearms ownership and the shooters themselves.
Join us to help make a difference, stop discrimination and create a system of fair policies that support and protect. Click here to learn more about the advantages of Shooters Union membership.
