(C) A permit-issue should be considered on the balance of probability that life or lives will be preserved in the event of a grievous attack upon the innocent; and

Draft Provisions (applicant criteria):

(C) Under the proposed Preservation of Life – Community Protection Act 2020 a person may be eligible to be issued a permit of possession for a regulated weapon if on the balance of probability that life or lives will be preserved in the event of a grievous attack upon the innocent given the circumstances stated by the Applicant.

Section D sub-section 1:

Before being issued a permit of possession an applicant must pass background checks which consider criminal, mental, addiction and domestic violence records.

The two aspects of the permitted applicant criteria are:

(1) consideration of the nature of any mental illness when associated with a hospital, mental institute, psychiatric clinic or otherwise when a person was confined because it was reasonable to say that violence or threatened or attempted violence on the part of the person against any other person has occurred; or

(2) has an established history of behaviour that includes violence or threatened or attempted violence on the part of the person against any person.

Note 1:

It is to be noted that violence used in the above context does not include justified violence with regard to a matter of self-defense, a lawful arrest, or similar situations authorized under legislation.
