Senator KAKOSCHKE-MOORE (South Australia) (18:08): Thank you. On behalf of the Nick Xenophon Team, I seek leave to move amendments to the amendments proposed by the opposition on sheet 8037.

Leave granted.

Senator KAKOSCHKE-MOORE: On behalf of the Nick Xenophon Team, I move amendments (3) to (8) on sheet 8051:

(3) Amendment (1), item 1, subsection 360.2(1), omit "20 years", substitute "30 years".

(4) Amendment (1), item 1C, omit "20 years", substitute "30 years".

(5) Amendment (2), item 3B, omit "20 years", substitute "30 years".

(6) Amendment (2), item 3E, omit "20 years", substitute "30 years".

(7) Amendment (2), item 3H, omit "20 years", substitute "30 years".

(8) Amendment (2), item 3L, omit "20 years", substitute "30 years".

The Nick Xenophon Team believes that increasing the maximum penalty for this offence sends a decisive message to both the community and potential offenders that trafficking illegal firearms is not acceptable and that the consequences for doing so will entail harsher penalties.
