Firearms licence applications and PTA’s a waste of scant police resources – unnecessary, unwieldy, unreliable and unworkable

Two Shooters Union executives recently attended a stakeholder meeting with the Queensland Police Weapons Licensing Branch and obtained some interesting statistics:

– There are approximately 215,850 licence holders in Queensland

– There are approximately 996,523 firearms registered in Queensland

– There are approximately 7,779 new firearms licence applications in the WLB system

– WLB are working seven days per week to process licences and PTAs

– Priority is being given to Occupational or Primary Producer licence applications

– All applications are being processed manually, ie an Authorised Officer must review and sign off on every licence and PTA application (even PTAs for Category A firearms)

– WLB are continuing to look for ways to improve internal systems to improve efficiency and speed up processing times

Shooters Union are thankful to Weapons Licensing Branch for the invitation to the meeting and their time in openly and honestly providing updates and answering questions from shooting organisation representatives.

We will continue to make representations to WLB regarding unacceptable processing delays and other issues affecting our members, but it is good to see genuine efforts being made on the WLB side to address the problem too. – contributed

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. You lucky bastards.

    You Queenslanders at least might get your licence sometime this century.

    The NT Government knocked me back because I am white. I was told I must apply to the Northern Land Council. That would be like Pontious Pilate knocking on the Pearly Gates.

  2. Processing of Firearms Licences (which I support) does not need to be done by Police officers – it could be done by clerks who would need to have access to the Police’s database of criminals. Processing of the registration of firearms by anybody is a total waste of time and resources, because it is a fact that no crime anywhere in the world has ever been solved or assisted by the registration of firearms.
