Rene Hidding, Minister for Police, Fire and Emergency Management
The Hodgman Liberal Government is a strong supporter of Australia’s National Gun Laws, and nothing in our re-election policy puts these at risk.
This policy is aimed at helping agricultural producers, particularly farmers, to protect crops from browsing animals and other pests. Farmers often suffer up to 30 per cent crop losses.
I want to be clear, we won’t do anything which is inconsistent with the National Firearms Agreement.
