Qld govt tightens shotgun restrictions

October 10, 2017

Annastacia Palaszczuk says tightening restrictions on shotguns will improve public safety.

The Queensland government is restricting access to high capacity lever-action shotguns.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced the measure on Tuesday after the recent shooting massacre of 58 concert-goers in Las Vegas, saying it would improve public safety.

Under the changes, lever action shotguns with a capacity of five or fewer round will be transferred from Category A to Category B, and those able to hold more than five rounds will move to Category D.
