SIFA Calls for Media Balance

This morning’s ABC News 24 interview with Gun Control Australia was a lost opportunity to include the informed views of industry experts.

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

For two hundred years, the Australian firearms industry has continually adapted to changing community standards of safety and security.

Every day, more than a million people uphold their obligations for safe storage and use of firearms, and SIFA works with the wider community to reduce the already very small number of firearms accidents.

Conflating the recent incident involving a child on a New South Wales farm with criminal activity and gun crime is not backed by facts and evidence.

SIFA rejects Gun Control Australia’s comments made this morning on ABC News 24 and is available for interview.
