How to take nafa in a hurry
- by admin
Preparatory courses for NFA registration in New South Wales have been closed, but you still have time to take the course online.
The ACT government says the changes will make the ACT the only state in Australia to implement NFA for all registered gun owners.
The NFA has been in place in New Zealand, Australia and the US since 1996, and was implemented in Victoria in 2016.
The changes will also extend the registration of handguns to the age of 18.
The New South Welsh Government says the ACT government is committed to ensuring firearms owners are not locked out of the community by not having the NFA.
“Our priority is to ensure gun owners are able to acquire a firearm,” a spokeswoman for the ACT Government said.
“We are taking the step now to ensure everyone is able to register and have access to a firearm, regardless of where they live or where they reside.”
The ACT Government says people will still be able to use a firearm in the ACT, but it’s not clear whether they’ll be able use their firearms in a public place.
The ACT Government is not proposing to impose an additional fee on firearm owners, but they have made changes to the way the NLA process is handled.
The new system is more restrictive.
People will now need to demonstrate they are at least 18 years old to register a firearm.
This will be done through a police-issued form, with a “no record” requirement, and a minimum age of 17 for the application to be processed.
It is not yet clear whether anyone who is not a current NFA holder will be able access a firearm at all.
The change means any firearm that you already own is automatically removed from the NAFSA database.
NFA registration has become a major political issue in the past two weeks.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison said he was pleased with the changes.
“We’ve always said it was our intention to make this happen,” he said.
Gun control advocates say the change means people will be allowed to purchase a firearm with a new ID card, and that the state will be the only one in Australia with this.
