Firearms, knives and other weapons offences

We are reviewing sentencing for firearms, knives and other weapons offences. 

We released a consultation paper (PDF, 1.4 MB) and an issues paper as part of this review. The consultation paper focused on weapon-related offending by adults. The issues paper focused on young offenders and weapon-related crime.

Submissions closed on 4 December 2023. Thank you to everyone who made a submission. 

The terms of reference (PDF, 383.8 KB) outline the scope of the review.
