FPO Legislation

Recommended Posts

This FPO legislation superceeds and overrides any other similar laws. 

A Firearm Prohibition Order can be issued for one of the four following reasons: 
1) Attempted murder of emergency services. 
2) Mass Murder
3) Repeated improper use of a firearm related offences
4) Attempting to supply weapons to someone with an FPO. 


If you are issued a firearm prohibition order the following restrictions apply to you: 
1) You are unable to have on your persons a firearm. 
2) You will be unable to purchase firearms and anyone selling to you is committing an offence worth a FPO. 
3) There are rumours that criminals will be less likely to work with you and sell you firearms due to the heat you generate and risk to their enterprises. 
4) Police may search you whenever they have an interaction with you. 
5) If you hold an FPO and also commit one of the crimes that can issue you an FPO then police and magistrates have extra sentencing options. 
6) If you repeatedly violate FPOs police can request compliance orders which further restrict your freedoms, allowing them to search properties, cars and known associates (like any organisation you might want to join) without having to apply for warrants . 


Repeat offences with an FPO:
1) If someone already has a FPO and then kills or attempts to kill causing serious injury a paramedic .Then a police officer with SGT approval or higher is permitted to sentence that person for up to 250 weeks. However the SGT should consider the situation as if they were a magistrate as punishments for false imprisonment will be high. If MCV is open then this case MUST be brought before the court and even more strict sentencing can be approved. Magistrates are permitted to sentence up to 900 weeks if found guilty and MUST sentence for a minimum of 450 weeks . 

2) If someone already has a FPO and then attempts to kill causing serious injury or kills 2 or more police officers in a single day. Then a police officer with SGT approval or higher is permitted to sentence that person to 250 weeks. However the SGT should consider the situation as if they were a magistrate as punishments for false imprisonment will be high. If MCV is open then this case MUST be brought before the court and even more strict sentencing can be approved. Magistrates are permitted to sentence up to 900 weeks if found guilty and MUST sentence for a minimum of 450 weeks

Note: The method utilised for the attempted killing or killing does not matter for the purposes of determining punishment


To get your FPO revoked:

Contact a lawyer either in city or via Legal Aid

Your lawyer will have to issue a court application for you and then have your case heard by a Magistrate or Judge. Please do not harass police they are not able to revoke your FPOs. A Magistrate is also not empowered to remove your FPO unless the case has been assigned to them by the District Court so please do not harrass them. 

Harrassing either party in these matters will likely result in any application you make to have the FPO revoked denied. 

If you have further questions please talk to one of our lawyers.
