Australia is in a unique phase where all nine government elections will be held in the next three years.
We all need to make sure that our governments continue to uphold the commitment they have already made to the National Firearms Agreement.
We also need to be vigilant about the influence of candidates and political parties that have policy platforms that call for the undermining – or even the scrapping – of the National Firearms Agreement.
Our democracy is stronger because of the range of views we encompass, but it can be strengthened further by the participation of the public in having a voice on significant policy issues such as gun safety.
We will help supporters ensure that they are heard.
In the meantime, make sure you ask your local candidate whether they support the National Firearms Agreement.
