Comments Comments

Simone Norrie representing the NSW Farmers lobby group showed her support for the reclassification of the Adler shotgun from Category A to B in this weeks The Rural publication.

Simone stated “There’s been no meaningful reform achieved from either side of the debate for the past fortnight.”

“The focus of the recent state and Commonwealth discussions has been around a proposal to reclassify the five shot capacity Adler from Category A to Category B and the seven shot Adler (currently banned) into Category D. NSW Farmers would support this”.

“If the seven shot were the be reclassified as Category D – and the ban lifted – there would need to be a serious conversation with the NSW Government about how farmers who need Category D firearms can actually get access”.

“We’ve approached Deputy Premier Troy Grant about access to Category D weapons. NSW Farmers received assurance this would be open for discussion in the New Year”.
