SSAA National employs journalists and other media professionals who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and who have previously worked in both the commercial and not-for-profit arenas. As journalists know, credibility can be easily destroyed. As a result, journalists should do everything in their power to get their stories and facts right the first time around. When writing about firearms, it is easy to get it wrong unless you are a sporting shooter or have personal experience with the topic. SSAA National welcomes and encourages contact from working journalists and offers the following resources.

A Journalist’s Guide to Firearms and the Shooting Sports
SSAA National has released a 70-page guide to firearms and the shooting sports to aid journalists when reporting on stories that contain firearm-related information.
Written by journalists for journalists, A Journalist’s Guide to Firearms and the Shooting Sports aims to provide a crash course in information about firearms, the shooting sports and recreational hunting, which, we hope, will assist in the correct delivery of accurate information.
The book is a handy guide to Australian laws on firearm possession and use, as well as a brief description of more than a dozen shooting competitions the SSAA runs across the country.
Journalists or media organisations wishing to order a copy of the guide at no charge can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Journalists wishing to discuss the guide or seeking media comment can contact SSAA National Parliamentary lobbyist and media manager Tim Bannister on 08 8272 7100.
