Democratic Labour Party statement

The Democratic Labour Party supports hunting for personal food use by licensed firearms users with the permission of rural and regional land owners. The DLP also supports the existing laws licensing firearms owners and storage of firearms, but opposes any move to centrally store firearms.

The DLP recognises that shooting is a foundation sport of the Olympic movement and supports shooting as a legitimate sport from club level to elite including Olympic, World and Commonwealth levels. It supports all disciplines of shooting being included at elite levels.

We support the removal of law-abiding, licensed firearms owners from the ‘CrimTrac’ data base used by Australian authorities for tracking criminals.

The DLP supports the culling and control of native and introduced pests and vermin by licensed firearms owners with the permission of land owners.  We support the SSAA’s Farmer Assist program and believe the control of pests and vermin will assist our eco-system and the preservation and protection of our flora and fauna.
