Good luck with that Kieth, and I mean that sincerely. It's a quite sensible point.

That said, as we have some utter nonsense in many of our firearms legislation, like preventing people considered fit to own a high powered firearm from using an otherwise useless inert metal tube to protect their hearing from that firearm.

All the antis see when they see a pistol is the Hollywood pistol BS that forms their opinions.

But I signed it anyway because if we don't at least try things will only get worse.

Kieth, would I be right in thinking that petitioners to the NSW Parliament could only be NSW electors?

I wouldn't think so #1, you are basically casting your vote. I made this for NSW for two reasons, 1) because there is no uniform firearms regulations Australia wide, & 2) I see this petition as a stepping stone. I think this is going to be a hard one to win, I already recieved a reply from the Police Commissioner telling me that they have no intention of changing any present gun legislation. BUT, if we did win this one, then we will have set a precedent for other states. This could in time lead to more scrutinizing of present regulations concerning modern firearms as well.
