NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has called on Labor to "rip up" its preference deal with the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party, as former prime minister John Howard joined the campaign trail ahead of Saturday's state election.

Mr Howard defended his appearance in Liberal ads released over the weekend, in which he warned that, if Labor won government, the Shooters would exert "enormous pressure" to weaken gun laws.

Responding to criticism about the timing of the ads, Mr Howard said they had been filmed before the Christchurch terrorist attack on Friday, in which an Australian gunman killed 50 people.

"I haven't made any comments [about New Zealand] except to express my condolences about what has happened," Mr Howard said.

"But if you're talking about the criticism I've made about the preference deal between [Labor leader Michael] Daley and the Shooters party, I'll repeat it.

"I think it's bad he's made a preference deal because if Labor were to win with the help of the Shooters, the Shooters would demand a relaxation of our gun laws. That is as surely as night follows day."

Mr Howard joined Ms Berejiklian and Sports Minister Stuart Ayres on the hustings at Westfield shopping centre in the must-win seat of Penrith on Monday.

Daley says 'I'll resign' if NSW guns laws change but deal with Shooters Party remains New South Wales Labor leader Michael Daley says he will resign from parliament if the state's guns laws are weakened, despite his party cutting a preference deal with the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party ahead of this Saturday's state election. Mr Daley is under renewed pressure over the preference swap in the wake of the deadly shootings in Christchurch, which once again put the issue of gun control on the political agenda.

With the campaign now in its final week, Ms Berejiklian also stepped up her attack on Mr Daley.

"If he is a person of character, he needs to rip up his preference deal with the Shooters," she said.

But Ms Berejiklian refused to be drawn on the Coalition’s own record of cutting deals with the Shooters to get legislation through the upper house.

"We owe them nothing," she said.

The Premier also dodged questions over the Coalition's decision to preference the Christian Democratic Party, whose leader Fred Nile has previously called for a ban on Muslim migration and has labelled homosexuality a "mental disorder".

Mr Daley has repeatedly defended Labor's preferencing strategy as one designed to win as many seats as possible, and on Sunday said he would prefer to quit politics than weaken gun laws.

"I will not be a part of a Parliament that weakens the gun laws in NSW; it will not happen if I am premier," he said on Sunday.

Ms Berejiklian's comments came as the NSW Electoral Commission on Monday published the how-to-vote cards that would be distributed by each party as voters walk into polling booths.

She said the material showed Labor was preferencing the Shooters ahead of the Coalition in 19 seats.

"He has to be honest with the community. He has to say why he thinks it's OK to legitimise a fringe party," Ms Berejiklian said.

Ms Berejiklian has already ruled out accepting the Shooters' support to help formgovernment, and routinely cites as justification the Shooters' past support for lowering the age at which children can use guns with adult supervision from 12 to 10 years.

The Shooters have since abandoned that policy.

Shooters MLC Robert Borsak said the party had no policy to give guns to children, and accused the Coalition of "desperately trying to divert their attention away from their neglect of the bush".

Her stance comes as Ms Berejiklian could be forced to rely on the conservative minor party if the Coalition finds itself in minority government after the March election.

"It’s not 10-year-olds with guns that country people are worried about. They’re worried about 10-year-olds not being able to drink safe tap water because of NSW government water mismanagement," he said in a video statement posted to his Facebook page.
