Legislation

Following the tragic events at Port Arthur on 28 April 1996, all states and territories agreed to implement nationally consistent legislation relating to the regulation and control of firearms across Australia.  The implementation of the 1996 National Firearms Agreement (NFA) included a national compensation buyback scheme.  The 1996 NFA was updated in 2017.
