About 1000 West Australian gun owners subject to a violence restraining order or convicted of a serious crime will have their licenses revoked or be banned from owning a firearm under proposed reforms included in a rewrite of the state’s gun laws.
The announcement on Tuesday comes on top of the establishment of a new domestic violence taskforce school sector agreement to tackle the scourge of domestic violence after a spate of horrific deaths in the state.

The proposed gun reforms will include mandatory disqualifying offences banning serious violent offenders from holding or retaining a gun licence.
Bans will also apply to anyone subject to a current violence restraining order and both aspects of the reform will be applied retrospectively, with Police Minister Paul Papalia’s office confirming that would apply to about 1000 licence owners.
WA Premier Roger Cook said while the length of the bans was still being worked through, it was likely a case of the more serious the offence, the longer the ban would be.
The reforms will also remove the ability to challenge bans in the State Administrative Tribunal, as is currently the case under the WA Police’s prohibition order powers.
“We want to put that well beyond the situation where people can be subjected to a family and domestic violence restraining order, but at the same time can get their licence returned to them by the SAT,” Cook said.
But WA Farmers Federation chief executive Trevor Whittington was critical of the loss of an appeals processes, raising the scenario of a VRO being improperly taken out on a person.
“A simple obvious question will be asked about vexatious VROs and how easy it is to take one out,” he said.
“Taking an appeal mechanism away from someone reeks of a loss of due process. Why would the government do that?
“They’ve had 18 months since they announced they were rewriting the old act, and they’ve yet to produce a comprehensive discussion paper and this is the sort of proposal that should be out there for considered discussion with all stakeholders.”
Cook said the reforms erred on the side of caution and that VROs themselves could be appealed.
“I’m sure that occasionally a VRO is subject to vexatious claims, but this is about keeping the community safe, I think we need to err on the side of caution in this particular situation,” he said.
“Let’s just be sensible about this.”
The government has been drip-feeding details of its gun reform agenda since it first announced a major rewrite in March 2022.
Last week, Papalia said draft laws would be released soon for consultation and Cook said he hoped the laws would be introduced to parliament by the end of the year.
The government has established a family and domestic violence taskforce that will be co-chaired by former Children and Young People Commissioner, Professor Colleen Hayward, and the Department of Premier and Cabinet director-general Emily Roper.
The taskforce was number one on the priority list for advocacy groups that met with the government in a crisis summit held last month.
It will include decision-makers from across the government and its first task will be to set up a lived experience advisory committee made up of survivors of domestic violence situations to feed into the state’s domestic violence policy and services.
WA has the third-highest rate of domestic violence in the country, behind Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
In 2022-23, family and domestic violence-related assaults rose by more than 15 per cent, with almost 3000 incidents reported in June alone.
The government also announced on Tuesday that the bodies representing public, independent and catholic schools had signed a statement of intent to tackle domestic violence and health relationships in a coordinated approach.
