Subject: Request for consultation with regards to Ban on Gel Blasters.

To the Honorable Paul Papalia,
I am writing to ask you to reconsider your decision to blanket ban gel blasters in WA on July 3rd.

The effects of this ban will include:
Alienating the hundreds of veterans that not only enjoy the hobby but also heavily rely on it for their mental health.
Taking away one of the only working methods of therapy for hundreds of sufferers of Anxiety Disorders.
Removing what is for some with moderate-to-severe disabilities the only way for them to interact with others, improve mental health and more fully take part in the better aspects of recreation and community.
Destroying one of the only ways that thousands have to enjoy a safe, healthy and fun hobby that has zero negative impact on anyone and benefits all who partake in it.

It will personally affect my life by [YOUR REASONS HERE]

BUT IT’S NOT TOO LATE.

The gelball community of WA was never properly represented in any of your decisions and The owner and admin staff of Perth GBG (Perth Gel Blaster Group) are but a few of the many that would relish the opportunity to help guide this decision in the best ways possible. We know they can help you do right by the WA Police, the general public and the Gel Blaster Community, and we ask that you give them that chance.

Nhat Troung can be reached at 0433 246 713, or [email protected] and is available any time you are to meet and offer consultation on these proposed changes. He’d be more than happy to have accompanying him notable members of the group that are both serving and retired Veterans of all branches of the armed services as well.

There are a number of things that could be done to improve these proposed changes such as looking to regulate gel blasters similar to paintball markers like they’ve done in South Australia, where they were going to outright blanket ban gel blasters as well until they properly consulted the gelball community. They found ways to integrate a serial number and Firearms Licensing into the regulation and it’s been a workable solution in comparison to the outright ban.

This thing doesn’t have to happen in a way that’s going to do irreparable damage to the lives and physical and mental health of thousands of West Australians. We can all work together to find a way forward that can avoid the inevitable devastation while still maintaining 100% of the proposed benefits to public safety and Police concern.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my personal experiences as well as the community’s request for consultation. We desperately hope that you’ll choose to do the right thing and we’re ready to assist in any way necessary.

Sincerely,

[YOUR NAME]
