Firearms Legislation Changes: There have been recent changes to the requirements in relation to the safekeeping of firearms. These changes relate to the storage of firearms and the location at which they are stored. You are now required to store your firearms at your primary residential premises. In simple terms, your primary residence is the address where you most often reside. This change in legislation comes because of a significant amount of firearms thefts from rural properties while those properties are unattended. Police
are asking that firearms owners make changes to their storage arrangements immediately to comply with these changes to the legislation.
