What Labor Will Do

Labor will double the penalties for people who carry dangerous knives:

  • Anyone carrying a prohibited knife will face a maximum six years imprisonment and $72,000 fine
  • Anyone carrying a knife classified as a controlled weapon will face four years imprisonment and a $48,000 fine
  • Anyone carrying a dangerous or offensive weapon in, or within 50m, of a public entertainment venue, or in the company of at least two other people will face six years imprisonment and a $72,000 fine

The #wa2013vote website will be kept online so politicians promises and statements can be checked until the end of next WA election in 2017, and after.
