Tight gun control rejected by lobby?
Concerns have been raised about the make-up of a committee advising the state government on gun laws.
A leaked report shows police wanted to tighten the rules to include banning serious criminals from buying one all together.
But it was rejected by a committee which is advising the government on the reforms, which happens to be made of pro-gun activists.
The panel is made-up of members of the Shooters Lobby, which has already rejected a proposal, that would have significantly tightened the rules around buying and using a gun.
Greens MP David Shoebridge has told Stuart Bocking the panel's view is unbalanced and the Government's being held to ransom.
