Minister Papalia banned Gel Blasters without any industry consultation at the request of the Commissioner for Police.

During our meeting when he advised us of his actions we were informed that there are planned amendments to the Firearms Act and that we will be invited to make a submission for the sport of Gelsoft. He presented the banning of Gel Blasters as a temporary measure which he was required to take at the request of the Commissioner for Police.

An amendment to the Firearms Act has just recently been introduced to Parliament. Apart from us not being consulted, neither were the stakeholders most impacted by the change.

We wrote a letter to Papalia this week expressing our disappointment in his promise not being kept and provided him with a proposal for regulating Gel Blasters and Airsoft devices in WA.

Please write a letter to Papalia expressing you disappointment in the continued lack of consultation and commitments not being kept. Please also direct him to the Western Australia Airsoft and Gel Ball Club Inc. as the representatives for the sport in WA. It is best if you send him an actual letter (printed is fine) as opposed to an email. Emails usually get ignored, but there is a different process for physical letters which from our experience receive more attention. Below are his contact details (Ministerial Office):
