To the Honourable the President and Members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows:

   that the overwhelming majority of Australians support uniform, national gun laws and the associated compensation measures as agreed between the Prime Minister, State Premiers and the Chief Ministers of the ACT and NT.

Your petitioners ask that the Senate:

   continue to demonstrate its firm support for these measures;

   take all possible action to expedite their implementation; and

   resist all calls for the control measures to be watered down or abandoned.
