In this story, the NSC:
- retains the services of a second Barrister for legal actions it is taking and to help shooters in trouble; and
- publishes a new page on its website to help shooters who have had their licences suspended or cancelled.
The NSC has made two changes to help shooters fight bad gun laws and the way they are administered.
NSC hires a second barrister
The NSC currently has 9 major legal actions Australia wide and several more on their way, mostly on firearm reclassifications, licence suspensions and bad administration by our regulators – all of which our barristers have helped with.
The addition of the second barrister to our team means the NSC will be able to run more legal actions and help even more members get their licences issued or reinstated.
New webpage to help shooters on licence problems
The second key change is the creation of a new page on our website dedicated to letting shooters know how to fight licence suspensions and cancellations.
While we cannot help every shooter directly, there are things that shooters who find themselves in that situation can do to help themselves.
The page can be accessed by clicking here. The page also provides advice on what you should do with your firearms while your licence problem is sorted out.
If you have a problem with your licence, take the time to read up on our website and whilst it can feel daunting, know that help for our members is not far away.
