The WA State Government has announced plans to reform the current Western Australia Firearms Act 1973 stating that the legislation would be redrafted to ensure greater community safety, including preventing criminals obtaining firearms (legally and illegally).

SSAA WA wholeheartedly supports improvements to the safety of ballistic sports, recreational and conversation shooting in Western Australia and the community, and we are actively participating in the review process by continuing to communicate with our members, Minister for Police and WA Police.

As part of the State Government’s announcement on Tuesday 22 March, data was released to a media outlet that identifies the location of licenced firearm owners in WA. If you are genuinely concerned about this apparent breach of privacy, we encourage you to write to the Minister Paul Papalia via this link Minister for the WA Police Force | Western Australia Police Force
