UKAPU have teamed up with the Western Australia Airsoft Club:
WESTERN AUSTRALIA AIRSOFT CLUB & UK AIRSOFT PLAYERS UNION AFFILIATE
Australian and British players team up to fight for airsoft
UK Airsoft Players Union and Western Australia Airsoft Club officially ‘tied the knot’ this month! The two organisations elected to officially affiliate, in recognition of their shared aims and values and in a show of international solidarity amongst airsoft players. Australia operates under common law which comes from in the UK, yet, in stark contrast to the UK, Airsoft is banned. WAAC has it’s work cut out for it in trying to get the ban lifted in a single state of Australia, with the hope that the other states will follow. The UKAPU committee was very impressed by the competence and commitment of the WAAC team and have confidence in their ability to lead the fledgling Australian airsoft community toward accomplishing this mammoth task.
“I am happy to announce that UKAPU is affiliated with Western Australia Airsoft Club, Inc.
The organisation is run by a few passionate individuals who are committed to getting Airsoft legalised within the state of Western Australia – and eventually propagating it throughout the rest of the country.
We’ve been supporting them for some time now. Their campaign is picking up momentum and good progress has already been made in their endeavour.”
David Weston, UKAPU Chairman
WAAC have already made some significant headway.
- They met with the Shadow Minister for Police, who stated that he was “embarrassed with the legislative regime” regarding the provisions of the Firearms Act being applied to the sport of Airsoft.
- Successfully ran a ‘Nerf gun amnesty’ campaign which caused a stir in local media regarding nonsensical firearms legislation in WA.
- This week they will be meeting with the State Minister for Police, the first ever airsoft group to be granted an audience.
For more information on the WAAC campaign please visit http://airsoftwa.com.au and like their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/AirsoftWA/ and ask your Aussie mates to do so too, they really need the support of locals who may want to play airsoft in the future!
About UKAPU: UKAPU is an unincorporated non-profit association formed by a dedicated group of Airsoft skirmishers to help protect and strengthen our hobby.
