• Firearms a policy trainwreck with Ferguson at the helm

• Humbling smack down for struggling Minister

Michael Ferguson’s approach to firearms has been a policy trainwreck and another defeat for the embattled Minister, Shadow Police Minister Shane Broad said.

“The Legislative Council has told Michael Ferguson it won’t be forced into doing his dirty work,” Dr Broad said.

“Mr Ferguson dumped his flawed, poorly drafted and consulted policy and then tried to outsource the policy hard yards to the upper house.

“Just a few days ago Michael Ferguson said he planned to make a submission to the inquiry after dumping his policy late on Friday.

“Now the inquiry has slapped him down – humiliating an already embattled Minister.”
