Las Vegas Statement

Las Vegas Statement

The actions of American Stephen Paddock in Las Vegas were cruel, callous and criminal.

We express sympathy to the families and communities suffering the devastating loss of loved ones in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA overnight.

This morning in Australia, we join in the world-wide condemnation of Stephen Paddock.


Australians deserve firearms legislation, regulation and policy that upholds community standards of sovereignty, security and safety.

SIFA is working today in all states and territories to bring about improvements based on facts and evidence and to ensure the proper allocation of our communities’ resources to illegal and criminal activity.

The Shooting Industry Foundation of Australia is the peak body representing one of our nation’s most respected and trusted industries.

We have earned and uphold this reputation by continually evolving to meet community standards and by working to improve Australian firearms regulation through research, education, advocacy and safety promotion.
