Why every gunowner should worry about “037”


If shooters ignore our voting system, it won’t be a question of “if” the Greens will hold the balance of power in State Parliament, but “when”.

Donate with 5 orgs - generic call

In less than 100 days since deciding on a new workplan with 5 of Victoria’s largest shooting organisations, the CFCV has done more than we thought we’d be able to get done. We have:

  • expanded our reach to over 40% of Victoria’s licenced shooters online and through our member organisations own communications;
  • played a key role in putting a cork in the Adler problem; and
  • drawn attention to politicians on key ongoing issues of concern that we will keep pursuing up to and beyond the next state and federal elections.

Thank you for your support. It has been fantastic – and encouraged us to do a lot, lot more! We look forward to the next 100 days. Read more »
