Gun Theft Figures Confirm Need to Dump Liberals’ Dangerous Policy

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens’ Police spokesperson

The report released today by Gun Control Australia shows firearms thefts have doubled over the last decade. Even more concerning, Tasmania showed a far higher number of guns stolen per capita than any other Australian state.

Gun Control Australia’s research shows 8% of all gun thefts happen in Tasmania, even though only 2% of the national population live here.

Gun Safety Bill A Priority

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Police spokesperson

The Greens will debate an amendment to the Firearms Act in Parliament this week that aims to improve community safety. 

A new shotgun on the market, the Adler 110, can fire off 6 shots in about 6 seconds and can be legally owned by anyone with a gun licence in Tasmania. At least 7,000 have been purchased in Australia, and several hundred of these are estimated to be in Tasmania.
