Victorias Firearm license and prescription pain medication?

Post by Stag101 » 08 Apr 2021, 11:45 am

Hey guys recently I’ve completed and handed in my firearms application and with all the research I’ve been doing I am beginning to be abit sceptical on the answer I might get. I’ve had a bike accident couple years back and hurt my lower back, since then been prescribed s8 pain medication for my pain. Especially with all the tightening of gun laws here in Victoria,
My question is would this affect the outcome of my application?

If I worked in weapons licensing and I heard someone was laying down on the couch With their eyes closed listening to pink Floyd’s COMFORTABLY NUMB ...I would not hesitate to issue a weapons licence. You got nothin to worry about

G'day Stag101,
Short answer, no. I know someone with a morphine script after losing a leg, didn't affect their licence. LRD are more concerned with people using anti-psychotics, Cheers.

I think this type of thing is a good example of why you should OPT OUT of the MY Health scheme. Having your medical records available for any gov dept to seach or view is not a good thing.

So Stag101, what are you saying. Are you accusing the QLD police are intentionally conducting illegal activities?

If so, please show and tell. What Act and Section number?

Lol no mate. I used the term unlawful ( not morally right or conventional ) not the word illegal ( forbidden by the law )

Unlawful does NOT mean illegal :lol:

Fair enough.
