Gun trans­port poli­cies dis­may

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Tay­lar Amonini

New poli­cies re­strict­ing the trans­porta­tion of firearms in the State have sparked anger in re­gional WA af­ter it was dis­cov­ered only 11 car­ri­ers have been ap­proved for trans­porta­tion.

Un­der a new pol­icy im­ple­mented by WA Po­lice, Aus­tralia Post is no longer ap­proved to trans­port firearms in WA and only one trans­port or­gan­i­sa­tion trav­els to and from the Pil­bara.

Out­raged by the lack of con­sid­er­a­tion for the re­gions, Pil­bara gun own­ers have be­gun writ­ing let­ters to the Po­lice Min­is­ter, lob­by­ing for change.

Har­vey King Firearms owner Peter Ni­cholls has urged lo­cals to as­sist li­cence own­ers and would hap­pily as­sist any­one in writ­ing a let­ter to rel­e­vant min­is­ters.

To find out more in­for­ma­tion, and as­sist gun own­ers, Mr Ni­cholls said peo­ple could con­tact him at his shop on Edgar Street or call him on 9173 4825.
