GunSmart is an initiative of the DPI Game Licensing Unit in partnership with the NSW Police Force. The campaign promotes the safe use of firearms by hunters and raises awareness of firearms safety - how to be safe around them, when using them and when storing them.
NSW Firearms Licences are issued by the NSW Police Force when an individual has completed firearms safety training and satisfied an extensive background check. GunSmart reminds NSW Firearms Licence holders of how to be smart around their firearms and to be safe, always.
GunSmart gives you the tools and reminders to always practice the fundamentals of firearm safety. These simple safety messages are for all hunters and firearms users regardless of how often they hunt or how long they have had a firearms licence. Whether you use a gun bag zipper key ring, a magnet on the fridge or sticker on your gun safe, be GunSmart and remember that firearms safety is everyone's business.
GunSmart objective: Firearms licence holders retain knowledge of firearms safety
and practice firearms safety every time they handle a firearm.
