The SSAA is shocked by Prime Minister Tony Abbott's decision to temporarily ban the importation of the Adler lever-action shotgun.
We have already talked to Justice Minister Keenan's Chief of Staff to express our displeasure, given that no consultation with shooting groups or the importer Nioa has taken place.
We will be raising the issue in our meeting with the Attorney-General's office, and the Justice Minister again, within the fortnight.
It is shocking that our parliamentarians are once again targeting the law-abiding shooter, rather than criminals who obtain firearms through illicit means, as was found in the Senate Inquiry.
We call on our members to contact your local politician to express your concerns with this decision.
