You Will Never Throw Away Eggshells After Watching This

10 easy steps to prevent home invasions

Thoughts For The Week By Ron Owen.

Thoughts For The Week.
“Nothing that is achieved from human progress is achieved with unanimous consent, and those that are enlightened before the others are condemned to pursue that light, in spite of others.” Christopher Columbus
My first thought is to express my sympathy for the bereaved and wounded from the Islamic attacks on the civilians of Manchester, (my home town) and London. I have left these thoughts for some time as I did not want to seem to be competing with the Anti Gun Ghouls who leap on the mass media band wagon after every massacre and repeatedly tear through the blood and entrails with bared teeth trying to get every ounce of gun banning trumpery regurgitated.
They Work Like Two Hungry Wolves Tearing A Milking Cow Apart One At Each End.
Why do our politicians cry peace, when we all know our enemy within, wants to kill us all? Why won’t our politicians deport the suspects? Why do they invite more killers to come to Australia, when they know that these disciples of Islam will work constantly to kill the Australian People?
The Muslim world has been ordered to kill the unbelievers, (that’s all of us) they have found us a soft and easy target. Our cowardly limp wrist’ed, corrupted governments have invited these killers into our community. Commanded by their Mosque mullahs and ordered to kill us by many quotes in the Koran. Encouraged by their successes, we the defenceless can only expect our governments (who have 24 hour armed protection) to sacrifice more of us in the name of cultural diversity.
How many have to die, before we begin to hang our corrupt treasonous politicians? They should be made accountable, for  disarming the community  leaving good people to be murdered, removing their ability to defend themselves and one another.
How long will it take for the Australian people to realise that our politicians are the Demons and the Mad Mullahs are the Devils?
Why do our politicians Cry Peace, when we all know our enemies within, all want WAR.
Within Days, Our Politicians shift the media machine away from Islamic’s murdering innocents with impunity to blaming Firearm Owners by spending millions of our money on a Firearm Amnesty. Its Insulting our Intelligence.

But Where is the Rage?
Obviously, the Flowers and pink Teddy Bears did not work. Nor did the flower power, hippy ‘All we need is love’ and unity messages put out by our treasonous leaders. Within a week they struck again in London and again in Brighton, Melbourne. Governments cultivation of passivity, pours oil on troubled waters, and sends active citizens deeper into slumber land. It diminishes us as citizens, subjugates us to TV Norms and candle-holders in the face of serious acts of violence against our community. This governments softly, softly approach after every terrorist attack is just giving aid and comfort to our attackers. Terrorism pursues a war of attrition against our social fabric, seeking to rip away bit by bit our confidence and openness and sense of ourselves as individual free citizens. Officialdom  with their media again diminish our individuality by instructing us on what we may feel, and think, and say,  discouraging us from confronting these atrocities and the ideological and violent rot behind them. The terrorist seeks to weaken our resolve, the Government wants to tranquilize our rage, withdraw our anger, and reduce us to wet-eyed ninnies.
When are we going to Rage about the dying?
When sadly the Grenfell apartment block accidentally catches alight and kills Muslims, there is no words of unity and  forgiveness, donate a pink teddy bear and lay truck loads of flowers, when its Muslims, the rage is okay, they can have a riot with government assistance. Yet we have to forgive them again.
“Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Dylan Thomas.

We westerners are not allowed to ask why our children died, or rage against their dying. It is becoming clear that the top-down promotion of a hollow togetherness in response to terrorism is about cultivating passivity. As when 20 or 40 innocents are butchered why do our politicians do a “Wag the Dog” and spin it around to blame ‘Islamophobe’s’ or what’s been said on facebook? This is not just an Australian Phenomena it is through-out the Western world. Hilary Clinton and Obama blamed a video that supposedly mocked Islam and the Prophet Mohammed, for the death of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, when everyone with half a brain knew that it was just another planned terror attack. Angela Merkel declares “Islam is not the source of terrorism” but the source is Christians who make Muslims feel angry because of “Islamophobia”
The reality is that the ideology of Islam, is already responsible for the slaughter of at least 270 million non-Muslims, and as to be identified as a Muslim they have to obey the dictates of their holy Quran (Koran) results in worldwide genocide of all who do not agree with them.
Quote, just two of many.
“Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
Quran (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captive and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush.”
This book has caused the Muslim Jihads Crusades which for many years conquered and pillaged North Africa, Southern Europe, the Balkans, the Middle East and India. The instructions within their Holy Book is far more devilish than Hitlers Mein Kampf (National Socialism) or Karl Marx Communist Manifesto,(Communist Manifesto). This Quran book is the catalyst for the recent attacks on the western world.
A Turkish friend of mine explained the whole Islamic mentality is training people to judge the rest of humanity, as either a Slave or a Master. If one has more power of any sort, then they are the Master, and must be obeyed, if they personally have more power over another, then they are a Slave and their only purpose is to serve or die.
We cannot keep excusing this behaviour as having nothing to do with Islam. According to Islam’s history, this exact conduct is a deeply inherent, continuing for 1,400 years without ceasing. Without slaughter, Islam has no history or contribution to the world.
Lets get this problem identified, its not a Racial issue, Muslims can be from any race and it is not a religious issue, our enemies unlike any other religions do not want to convert people by good examples, (miracles) by good works, by discussion, this ideology seeks world domination, world control by the application of fear. If you are not one of them and they are strong enough, your only short survival will be as a slave, most and for the majority, surplus to requirements you can only expect death.
All of us are targeted, by controlled suicidal maniacs who are programmed to kill with any tool at their disposal, knives, aircraft, trucks, bombs, guns, poisons, gas. tactics as arson, vehicle rampage attacks, bomb threats, suicide attacks, bombings, shootings, stabbing, highjackings, kidnapping and beheading’s. As it is, most of you will know of someone who has been affected by this latest war, since 1979 over 20,930 people have been killed, and 52,719 plus have been wounded. This war which had its beginnings 1400 years ago, has come to the fore in the last few years and only has signs of escalation, due to government enforced “helplessness” of the general population. Of course our politicians are not the ones being killed, they and their armed police buy the best protection our taxpayers dollars can provide. We are not running from school bullies, we are not all able to run or hide, and more than likely will have no time to tell anyone about it. They use us, as sacrificial lambs, like sending soldiers to war without any ammunition, then sermonise on, togetherness, and pacifistic nonsense, reducing us to a line of bawling pallbearers whose only purpose is to fill the streets with pink balloons, teddy bears and flowers, or hold another candle light vigil in memory of our fellow citizens. The government response to the massacres of over 20,000 civilians is “All you need is love”, and have another Gun Amnesty.
“Don’t let them break our Unity”.
How inverse of them to say that, how ignorant of the facts, we are not unified, the government has allowed a howling rapacious killing machine into our midst and wants to use them as an excuse to totally control us all. Do they really want us to have Unity with our own killers. What are their values, what are our values? Our governments do not want us to have core values that a good society can be built on. They would hate us to be unified that would take away their power, they want us soaked in a grey ABC apathy. That is why they have introduced “diversity”, on a moral and cultural basis.

Admit to having core values in a society designed to operate on diversity, suggest that any particular evil ideology poses a threat to the community and you will be singled out to face the star chamber “Discrimination” Courts. Government’s cry of unity is a lie. The fact is,  there are people in our society willing to attack us, others who will think those attacks are justified, and others still who will apologise for those attacks by saying they are a product of Islamophobia or of Western intervention, when really the object is to end Western civilisation, end freedom, free thought and end individualism. We are far from united. We are deeply divided, but not allowed to say so.
We are all considered expendable.
Governments that no longer guarantee the security of their citizens are worthless, and those that disallow their own citizens the right and the means to defend themselves are worse then negligent, they are clearly dangerous to support in any way. Most people are slowly awakening to this realism, but its more than likely too late to prevent our streets turning into rivers of blood. The government wants us passive, empathetic, upset, not angry, or active, or questioning the disparity between these.  They prefer us as a lonely crowd of dutiful, disconnected griever’s rather than a real collective of citizens demanding to know why our fellow citizens are being killed and how we might prevent others from dying. We have to stop playing the part that they have created for us, we have to remind them of the horrors that they have inflicted on us and vote for change. To do this we have to express Anger? Fury? Rage, if not they will reinforce a mass media forcefield that will blanket out the reality of the revolution that they have introduced in to our national society.
I posted the following on Owen Guns facebook page, it received 22086 hits, and 1032 people shared it within 24 hours. Lots re-posted it using their own names. This idea has been accepted by many thousands of people so please put your name on the first line and send it around to at least your local members of parliament and put it on as many electronic notice boards as possible .
“I Ron Owen a freeborn, law abiding citizen, demand that the right to carry a firearm suitable for defence is reinstated. There is irrefutable facts to prove that for some years a large international group of Islamic fanatics wish to kill us all randomly and that our government is incapable, or does not wish to act, to defend us. I do not want to be sacrificed to a politicians pacifistic idealism, I do not want to go in fear, I have a right to defend my life and the lives of the people I abide with. It is perverse that our people are being butchered in worldwide genocide and our leaders say, love, unity and multiculturalism is the answer, while they are surrounded by tax payer armed guards. If the recent massacre of children and their parents on a fun night out doesn’t make you want to defend yourselves or defend your right to survival, nothing will. The terrorist has defeated you. You are dead already, but you have no right to prevent me from choosing to defend my family.”
Our Governments response to Terrorism, the cold blooded murder of our fellow Australians by Mad Monis, Lindt Choclate cafĂ© and others, has not been to extradite all known extremists, close Mosques, or Ban The Quran. No, the response has been a new NFA to pour more impositions on lawful firearm owners. Please read our last Bulletin on Ammunition limits. http://www.owenguns.com/owen-guns-bulletin-may-edition-132-2017/
We have our banner on lodging a protest on Bruce Highway, next to the Owen Guns shop, they cost $250. each.  They are 6 metres long if you have a site and the $250. we will provide the banner. They are vinyl sheeting with ropes attached.
There are many other impositions for collectors and heirlooms please read it all.
The other outcome is the latest Firearm  Amnesty which will begin on the 1st July 2017 and be in place for 3 months.
For many it might seem harmless, but it is another ploy to remove firearms from law abiding citizens, another few million dollars of the tax payers dollars being spent on worrying the good and supporting the evil anti gun movement. Firearms are tools, they can be used for food gathering and defending homes and families. Historically they are safer in peoples homes rather than Police Stations, as many will remember, the AR15 that was supposedly used for the Port Arthur massacre had been handed in during an Amnesty in Victoria and then turned up burned at the Seahaven lodge after Port Arthur.
The whole idea that Criminals are going to hand in their firearms, (which some have cost them in excess of $5000.) because the government has increased the penalties is ludicrous, the idea that Terrorist would feel for one second that they should hand in their firearms is even more preposterous. It’s a waste of time, money and human endeavour, even when the Police record the ones handed over for registration they will more than likely make a mistake, book it down for the wrong person, or its description will be wrong or lose all record of it entirely. I received someone elses licence renewal the other day, maybe someone else has mine. The whole system is fruitless, even the weapons licence, any Crim will find some one to manufacture a licence. We have Police selling hot guns, selling their own guns, and Police selling the information from the registry and the Police Minister lying to members of the house of representatives who requested the number of licenced shooters in his area and the number of licenced shooters in the State of Queensland, or if not lying unable to retrieve the information from the Q Prime Queensland Police Firearm registry. So why bother with a Amnesty unless its to use more publicity against the legitimate Firearm Owners.
Our best response is to encourage anyone who has no home for a firearm to take it to the Licensed Dealers, or Licensed Armorer’s, DO NOT TAKE IT TO THE POLICE, as only destruction will be its fate. Even if its no good at all, some of the parts may assist some one else to keep their firearm. Of course we would love you to donate your firearms to the Owen Guns Trust Museum or give Owen Guns the option of purchasing your firearms, but any LICENCED DEALER should assist you, and might even pay you some money. There are a plethora of firearm owners, collectors and new shooters that would love to give your firearm a new home. DO NOT TAKE IT TO THE POLICE, DO NOT LET THE OTHER SIDE WIN.
There is no Spring without Winter, without Mistakes there is no Learning. There is no Life without Death, without Doubts there is no Faith. There is no Peace without War, without Fear there is no Courage. For without Mistakes, Doubts and Fears there are no pathways to Wisdom.

Testing For Edible Plants.

I will eat berries that are known to me, other flora I will test first before eating. Personally I would not bother testing for edibility unless (a) I was in urgent need of food, or (b) there was a lot of a certain plant around & I needed to find more edible plants to add to my diet.

Testing For Edibility:

I think this email says it all!

"Hi Keith,
It looks like you're having trouble with logging in to Facebook. Just click the button below and we'll log you in".

You sent me this message, but it did not help me to get back on Facebook. I have no idea WHY you locked me out in the first place!
I have tried to get back on numerous times, but you apparently ASSUME that I know by SIGHT all my Facebook friends. I DON'T!!! Nor have I any intention of sending you copies of my private documents to prove who I am. You shut me out, I did not leave. I have a book page, my personal page, I am admin on a group, & I had membership in several groups, & you blocked my membership. I can no longer share with any of the groups, & the group that I ran can no longer accept new membership or close down. It is in limbo because of you.
You want me back on? You fix it. If you don't want me back on, STOP SENDING ME NOTIFICATIONS FROM FACEBOOK!!!
Very Sincerely, Keith H. Burgess.

Genocide in West Papua

This genocide is still happening now in 2017, & all because of the mining interests in West Papua. The UN, America & Australia all sanction the raping & killing of women & children in West Papua & all for money! Does this make you proud to be Australian or American?

Top 10 Aboriginal bush medicines

The 10 most common Aboriginal bush medicines
1. Tea tree oil
(Melaleuca alternifolia)
Bundjalung Aboriginal people from the coast of New South Wales crushed tea-tree (or paper bark) leaves and applied the paste to wounds as well as brewing it to a kind of tea for throat ailments. In the 1920s, scientific experiments proved that the tea-tree oil's antiseptic potency was far stronger than the commonly used antiseptic of the time. Since then, the oil has been used to treat everything from fungal infections of the toenails to acne.

2. Eucalyptus oil
(Eucalyptus sp.)
Eucalyptus leaves can be infused for body pains and fevers and chills. Today the oil is used commercially in mouthwash, throat lozenges and cough suppressants.

3. Billy goat plum/Kakadu plum
(Terminalia ferdinandiana)
The world's richest source of Vitamin C is found in this native fruit from the woodlands of the Northern Territory and Western Australia. The plum has 50 times the Vitamin C of oranges, and was a major source of food for tribes in the areas where it grows.

4. Desert mushrooms
(Pycnoporus sp.)
Some Aboriginal people suck on the bright orange desert mushroom to cure a sore mouth or lips. It has been known to be a kind of natural teething ring, and is also useful for babies with oral thrush.

5. Emu bush 
(Eremophila sp.) 
Concoctions of emu bush leaves were used by Northern Territory Aboriginal tribes to wash sores and cuts; occasionally it was gargled. In the last decade, leaves from the plant were found to have the same strength as some established antibiotics. South Australian scientists want to use the plant for sterilising implants, such as artificial hips.

Theft of a firearm attracts the same penalty as stealing a carton of beer - Sporting Shooter

Theft of a firearm attracts the same penalty as stealing a carton of beer - Sporting Shooter

Government & courts corruption! What? You thought the Australian government was trying to discourage crime? Think again!!!

Crime is what keeps citizens fearful, crime is what keeps citizens dependent on the government for protection. Remember, self defence is NOT an official reason for owning a gun, AND you are not allowed legally to purchase anything for use in self defence. No pepper spray, no tasers, no guns! The government does NOT want to stop crime.

Firearm Owner’s Freedom at the Cross Roads.

Thoughts For The Week.
Firearm Owner’s Freedom at the Cross Roads.
The NEW ‘NFA’ will impose the worst restrictions on our rights since the 1996 Un informed debacle of John Howard’s implementation of the UN. 23 point Civilian Disarmament Treaty. Yet, we the law abiding firearm owners have never been so well equipped to oppose it, we have over 2 million licenced shooters in Australia, (only 13 million people voted in the 2016 Federal Election) we have the Internet, and Facebook which is our means of communication, a force that is now rivalling and taking precedence over the Foreign controlled mainstream media machine. Also, like the rest of the western world the voters are tired of Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dum politics, tired of getting the same result from both mainstream parties. This has caused a fine line with no large majorities in any of the Australian Parliaments.
“There are more people on the waiting list to join the Melbourne Cricket Club than there are rank-and-file members in all Australian political parties put together.” (Cathy Alexander, 18th July 2013. https://gmggranger.wordpress.com/2013/10/15/quikstats-australian-political-party-membership/
“There are more members of the SSAA than there are rank and file members in all Australian political parties put together.” Ron Owen
As Party membership has dwindled the mainstream political parties have refused to make their membership figures public, but mainstream media themselves state that in 2013 the Liberal Party had 50,000 and Labor 43,000 and Greens 10,000 which by the 2016 Federal election results showed a further disinterest in the main parties and 22% voted for the minor parties.
So when the membership of our shooting associations which only 1 in 15 join (most remain hunting on rural property) are ‘mountains’ overlooking political parties of ‘mole hill’ proportion, why in a supposedly Constitutional Democracy are we dictated to by an elitist minority. Why do we have to resist and deal with politicians who seek to impose this NFA, National Firearm Agreement. We nor any representative from any shooting discipline, or association agreed, nor were we consulted. While our State and Federal Police Ministers met to unanimously vote to impose, not just a re categorisation of the Adler from A to B. All that was just part of the cover up ‘Flim flam’ creating the media ‘smoke and mirrors’ so it does not enrage the huge voting power of firearm owners.
Read if for yourself, its NOT just a Re Categorisation for the Adler Shotguns it has further impositions.
Find these in the Police Ministers, wish list.
54. Jurisdictions will legislate to allow the sale of ammunition only for those firearms for which the purchaser is licenced, and impose limits on the quantity of ammunition that may be purchased in a given period.
(This means that all sales will have to be recorded to whom and which licence another register, more public servants more taxes, more impositions)
55. On the purchase of ammunition, the relevant licence must be produced.
(d) the commercial transport of ammunition with firearms is prohibited
” This Agreement sets out minimum requirements in relation to the regulation of firearms. Nothing in this Agreement prevents jurisdictions from adopting additional, including more restrictive regulations.
Cat A
(c) Shotguns (other than semi-automatic, pump action or lever action)
Cat B
d) Lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds
Cat D.
(c) Semi-automatic, pump action and lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity greater than five rounds
20. Heirlooms
(a) Jurisdictions agree that where the owner of an heirloom firearm is unable to establish a genuine reason for possession of that firearm and/or does not qualify for a collector’s licence, jurisdictions may issue the heirloom owner with a special category of licence. The requirements of that heirloom licence must be that:
i. before the licence is issued, the owner provides sufficient proof of inheritance of the heirloom
ii. the licence apply only to a single gun, or a matched pair or set
iii. all heirloom firearms be rendered permanently inoperable
iv. the licence not authorise the discharge of the heirloom firearm or firearms in any circumstance
i. the firearms which are the subject of the collection should be of or above a defined age
ii. firearms in a collection which have been manufactured after 1 January 1946 must be rendered inoperable (whether or not they are otherwise only required to be rendered temporarily inoperable according to paragraph 19(b))
iii. collectors may not possess ammunition for a collection firearm
iv. any attempt to restore firearms in the collection to usable condition should be regarded as a serious offence and subject to severe penalties
v. all operating firearms which are owned by the collector under separate licensing arrangements should be subject to the same level of regulation as any other operating firearm
vi. for the purposes of the collection of Category H firearms, genuine historical collectors must
1. be a member of a state or territory accredited historical firearm collectors society
2 .have their licence application endorsed by an accredited historical firearms collectors society
3. comply with strict storage requirements
4. display a commitment as a student of arms in order to collect or retain post-1946 handguns.
.43. Jurisdictions agree that the issuing of a permit must be subject to a waiting period of at least 28 days to enable appropriate checks to be made on licensees in order to ascertain whether circumstances have occurred since the issuing of the original licence which would render the licensee unsuitable to possess the firearm or which would render the licensee ineligible for that type of firearm.
45. Jurisdictions should consider imposing greater storage requirements where multiple firearms are kept on the same property.

Firearm Owners Association of Australia will be installing these 5 meter long banners on the Bruce Hyw in Gympie, if you can use one in your area they are $250. each
All shooters and all of their families and friends must VOTE AGAINST the National Firearm Agreement.
Contact your local State and Federal MP ask him to move a motion in parliament to oppose the NFA. His response will quickly inform you as to which side he is on. If he will not oppose it tell him you will vote for any other party that will. There are elections coming in Queensland and it has not been through the parliament so cannot be imposed yet. Seek them out, don’t be insulting just tell them that if they vote against law abiding firearm owners they won’t get your vote or you friends and families vote. If they vote for the NFA they will never get your vote in the future. Do not leave it to your association or your membership to a political party, it needs all shoulders to the wheel. Ten minutes on the phone now could save you years of aggravation in the future.
Where does all this anti freedom, anti human rights, anti firearm owners come from?
Please read thoroughly about George Soros and his establishment of the Open Society, and its relationship with Rebecca Peters, Anti Gun Coalition, and Save the ABC and George Sorus investment in Channel Nine, our major Banks and his investments into Australia’s political landscape. Please read Edition Owen Guns Bulletin Dec Special Christmas Edition 127, 2016

“Curiously though since Peters left, the shooting massacres, of the same style, lone gunman, have ceased! And private firearm ownership and number of firearms have doubled. Since Peters has returned to the USA, they have been subjected to the lone gunmen syndrome ever since.”
These days, this international conspiracy is not a theory it is a fact established and accepted by mainstream media such as the Weekend Australian article. “Influence Of George Sorus on Western Politics.
This coming battle at the Cross Roads against the latest NFA impositions on ammunition purchasers and Collectors firearm arms might not be the last battle, but it will the best chance we have to turn firearm legislation around and to create some sort of future for individual freedoms.

In previous editions of this bulletin and years before that in the Lock, Stock & Barrel magazine, (now going up on line http://www.owenguns.com/lock-stock-and-barrel-magazine/
I have asked this question.
“Have we been conquered by a foreign power? Do We live in an Occupied Country?”
These days maybe more people can see the truth in that question than when I first proposed it. We have foreign intervention within our political, financial and media leadership bent on an agenda that suits foreign powers, not ours. This foreign power funds election campaigns, funds TV stations, newspapers, invests in banking stock, employs talking heads, pays large amounts of money into false non profit organisations and we suffer under this foreign intervention. Part of this agenda is the destruction of our culture, so they can superimpose Multi culture, leading to No culture accept theirs. They demand an end to our moral values, our philosophy of freedom and in exchange for another import of a million Middle Eastern imports many of whom are of a Criminal disposition. The purpose of that is so that by policing them, judging them as the norm, they seek to excuse the removal of the rights of the law abiding. It has to be stopped our western culture can and has accepted migrants from all western countries any whom have wanted to assimilate have been made welcome. Other have been free to go back to their birth country. This Foreign power has demanded that we have to exchange our freedoms and accept their wrong doings. How do they enforce this agenda?
By disarmament and employing the force to carry it out.
The Foreign power directs them and our taxes pay for our own jailors.
Our Police Force is one of the heads of the Multi Headed Monster.
Our Police Forces are taught to have the mentality that they are the ‘Thin Blue Line,’ they are indoctrinated with Elitism, an Officer of the Law that control the mere Populus, the cattle, who are all only Criminals-in waiting, waiting, to be taught that they are just grist to the mill.
They believe with a religious passion that if there was no ‘This Thin Blue Line’ that society would immediately fall into chaos.
I have personal first hand experience of that mentality, and on many occasions they have relished and enjoyed serving warrants, serving summons, charging me with 2583 charges, (yet without a conviction) confiscating property, returning it and then confiscating it again, each time we have to book it in and book it out. Relentless persecution delivered with a smirk. They have spent many millions of dollars in legal cases against me which have cost me thousands of dollars and years of my life working to stay away from jail. As I am the President of the Firearm Owners Association of Australia and prominent in the firearm trade, many other citizens who have also experienced this mentality phone or contact me seeking advice and assistance, so I suppose I only hear the horror stories and really I see only one side of the story. I hope so.
I also know Police that do not believe that they are Supermen or Super women, that are embarrassed by the actions of the majority, we all would know of the exceptions to the rule. The good police within the organisation are without a voice and are heavily intimidated by the examples that have been made of other good policemen, who have spoken out “Whistleblowers” so are quite correctly too scared to report misconduct for fear of workplace harassment, intimidation, setups and being falsely charged. When they know something, they have nowhere to go with it, and no one to trust.
Most that I have known have changed jobs or are retired. I can think of two that I could enjoy a conversation with and the rest I am forced to presume that I am the prey. I am to be hunted for sport, if they managed to get a conviction on me they would have my head mounted on top of their office desk. They say “Im only doing my job”, I say are you, “just following orders? They say, Yes, just following orders, I say, “That’s what they said at Nurenberg”, they say, “What happen there?” I say.”Well they hanged all those Germans who used that excuse. On the basis if they knew they were doing wrong under common law they were guilty. ”

They don’t wear a uniform like this but most of them would like to.
Yes, there are real Criminals out there, but they seem secure ensconced, un touchable, by Police, almost protected. People can spend years trying to get the police to act, even when they have CCTV footage of the thieves have their address and identification. They are too busy they say.
Which allow the police to hunt more honest citizens hounding them for having a barrel weight, on their barrel or a 12 shot magazine instead of a ten shot. Charging people for having their window open and ammunition in the house, or non standard packets for ammunition. It seems that when they go to work they are not afraid of Criminals but they are terrified of law abiding licenced shooters. Yet, it is not us, that shoots them they shoot more of their own comrades and themselves with their un safe un trained firearm safety skills, they are their own worst enemies.

To rub even more salt into our wounds, these are the people that contrary to the written doctrine of the Separation of Powers engraved in the stone of our Constitutional Laws the Police are the ones assisting the Foreign powers, with the assistance of the Police Union in formulating legislative changes. Their advice to the Executive is taken as written law and no consultation is allowed from the people. Police now write the law and enforce it, Justice has gone, even law itself has gone the same way as mercy and charity, out of the window. The Police are now the law makers, which they can break with impunity and they enforce their policy over the Populus.
If I am wrong I would be pleased to be the first to apologise, but this is what others say..
The Combined Firearms Council of Victoria after the Victoria Police refused to comply with their FOI request to handover documents outlining their grand plan for firearm law reform, which they provided to the government. In legal lingo, they are hiding behind the protection of their documents being “Cabinet-in-Confidence”. That protection is normally available to departments, whose job it is to prepare confidential briefings and analysis for Cabinet, through their minister.
We’re arguing that this exemption is not available to the Victoria Police, because it is not a department (but an independent regulator) whose functions are spelt out under the Victoria Police Act 2013. Those functions relate to enforcing the law, not making it.
We think their defence is little more than a ‘middle finger’ to the shooting community who are entitled to be part of a broader consultative process, rather than be at the receiving end of games being played ‘behind closed doors’. That’s why we’ve decided to throw everything we can at this.
Again the above is contrary to the Separation of Powers doctrine that is within our Constitution. The Police should not manufacture their own laws.
“Not enough evidence” How can this be investigated and the family be given the excuse that there is not enough evidence. IS IT NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE IN THIS VIDEO FOOTAGE ALONE!
Click the link, above It shows Ray Currier being arrested. Sometimes does not work as some forces are trying to block it.
This is just one incident we have over 10,000 policemen in the State of Queensland and at the last published figure in 2010 over 3000 official complaints against them, every year. That’s 30% per year that are complained against. Most with the same incredible result, "No action to be taken". When some police have 20 or 30 complaints against them it should mean something. It’s called “Caesar judging Caesar”, even if you got the CMC or as it was the CJC, ‘The Thin Blue Line’ will stick together. Of course most people who have suffered at their hands will not make an official complaint, they know its useless and it would only get them into more trouble, but still some 100 or so champions of freedom take the Police to Court Private Prosecutions under the Justice Act 1889 section 100 (abouts). Even this is heavily weighted against the complainant but some have been successful and Ian Leavers from the Police Union is trying to breach the Separation of Powers doctrine again and force the goverment into legislation that will prevent Police from private prosecution.
A QUEENSLAND whistleblower has criticised the police minister’s address to graduates for creating an “us and them” mentality.
Minister Jack Dempsey, a former police officer, made the remarks as he addressed 89 graduates at the Queensland Police Service Academy’s Brisbane campus. Originally published as Minister gives new cops ‘wrong idea’.
A report handed to Parliament on Wednesday found Queensland Police Service (QPS) crime statistics were “questionable at best and unreliable at worst”.
State-wide about 22 per cent of reports in QPRIME, the internal police system, were inaccurate or incomplete between 2011 and 2016. That is the system that hold your licence and registration information.
The Age. The Victoria Police unit that issues licences to gun owners and regulates the private security industry faces three separate internal investigations
A leading Victorian private security figure with decades of experience described LRD as “judge, jury and executioner”. We’ve got police deciding on whether or not you have a good business case to launch a new security company or training organisation. What expertise do they have to do that? … They aren’t accountants,” he said. Bryan de Caires, the chief executive of Australian Security Industry Association Limited,
The Combined Firearms Council of Victoria, which represents the interests of about 200,000 licensed Victorian shooters, has released a survey which shows only 11 per cent of respondents believed LRD was an efficient regulator. More than 80 per cent of respondents wanted to reduce Victoria Police’s influence.
The internet is full of it, just put Complaints Against Police into a Google search and you will really wonder if we have not paid for our own Concentration Camp guards. We have the right on our side and we have the numbers to make our elected representatives sort this out. Make your presence known to all candidates at the coming election. We have to raise our heads and change our society into one that our children are going to be proud of, instead of going quietly into the darkness of our own imposed slavery.
There is no Spring without Winter, without Mistakes there is no Learning. There is no Life without Death, without Doubts there is no Faith. There is no Peace without War, without Fear there is no Courage. For without Mistakes, Doubts and Fears there are no pathways to Wisdom.

Something I had Not Thought Of Before!

We have probably all thought about the possibility of an asteroid striking the earth, I seem to recall a scientist saying that asteroids pass the earth all the time, but at a distance that is no threat to us. But what if another planet in our solar system were hit by a large asteroid?
Our planet, Earth, is governed in it's orbit by the planets surrounding us. The moon pulls us & pushes us & effects our ocean tides. But all the surrounding planets have some effect on Earth's orbit. So what would happen if one of these other planets were knocked off course, or worse, destroyed? This would change Earth's orbit, which surely would change our world's weather patterns & climate. How do we prepare for that? Something to think about.

Spromise "S358J" 3G Trail Camera (full setup with install and picture/vi...


I have been thinking of getting a trail or farm camera, & of course I would prefer to get one from someone that is local. Security is important to me, but I am also interested in using such a camera for taking pics of wildlife in the forest. I must wait & see. Priorities govern where I spend our money, so getting one of these may have to wait for a while. I can see there a variety of areas where this sort of camera could come in handy, such as our wood shed, our front gate, areas where we know poachers have entered our property, so placing one of these to watch a particular fence line could be useful.

Obviously this video review is not one of mine, but this bloke does cover the technical side of the camera very well, probably better than I could. Anyway, something for you to think about. I would certainly like to have one of these watching our yard & road, especially when we are not at home.
Take care out there.

Excessive rain fall expected in Qld & NSW !

Huge rainfall expected for the east coast in the next few days. If you live in an area prone to flooding, take precautions NOW! 

And here: https://au.news.yahoo.com/nsw/a/35548447/nsw-and-queensland-weather-months-worth-of-rain-to-pour-in-three-days/#page1
DO NOT try to drive through fast flowing waters at any depth. DO NOT attempt to drive through waters which are deeper than the wading depth of your vehicle. DO NOT let your kids play anywhere near flood waters. Check food supplies in your pantry & stock up NOW. Think about how you are going to boil water & cook food if you are flooded. Make sure you have plenty of safe drinking water on hand, flood waters may be polluted. Tie stuff down in your yard, these rains may be accompanied by strong winds.
Good luck everyone.

Sex attacker charged with assault of 12th Sydney victim. Government's Ant-Self Defence Laws!

This is practically a daily occurrence now, in fact many rapes & attacks may go unreported. Here in NSW Australia it is illegal to carry anything with which to defende yourself, no sprays, no batons, no tasers, & of course no guns. The new 2017 National Firearms Agreement also states that firearms may NOT be used in defence of self, family or property in home invasions. We are left defenceless unless we can find something in the house with which to defend ourselves, and even then it may not be enough against superior odds.

Thoughts For The Week By Owen Guns.

Thoughts For The Week.
Well its Anzac Day, it does not seem 5 minutes since last year, again the bands will be playing, politicians will be postulating, young officers (just out of school) will be making speeches and the dignitaries will be accepting the salutes of the veterans as they march past.
I go every year, I don’t enjoy it. It is a duty that I care about. I go to show that I respect the sacrifice of those who paid the ultimate price and to those who are still paying the price. I watch the sloppy drill of the current serving soldiers and silently lament some of the chronic renditions of the Last Post. I hear the croaking, stuttering, silences, when they attempt to sing the National Anthem. No one knows the words, no one knows what the words mean. We show our flag, it’s a symbol but very few know what the symbols on the flag are supposed to mean. Many just think that its like a product banner, like ‘coca cola’ a logo, a familiar badge that they put up and down if someone wins a medal at the Olympics.
I believe the Anzac Day Parade is done all wrong, the Veterans should be on the podium and the whole town, politicians, mayors, councillors, police, teachers, serving officers, should all march past, smartly saluting the Veterans. Show some respect for those who put their individual lives on the line, so that we can live in idle security, and give it all away.

All had some one waiting for them at home. Countless millions never came home.
All the sacrifice, the lives cut short, the loss of whole generations, the loss of whole families, the loss for the mothers, and wives whose lives were lost in grief, for what? Yes, we have been given the best country and richest country in the world, yet our apathy has allowed us to vote for traitorous politicians who beginning with the Lima Agreement in 1974 gave our country away to the international power club. The Wars to End all Wars have never really stopped, yes we have had a continuous flow of little enemies, media created bogy men, with big hats like Castro, Ho Chi Min, Pol Pot, Gadaffi, Saddam Hussein and Kim Jong which have destroyed millions of families since World War Two, but the seemingly endless war between the international mainly faceless power brokers and the harmless Mums and Dads of this sorry world goes on, and on relentlessly. What’s more the bad guys keep winning, and we lose more freedoms every day.
Ever since the bad guys have dominated the printing press and television the people have been used and abused, dumbed down and misinformed. Our only hope, the combination of the internets distribution and the mobile phone ability to record and transmit is still only a pin prick to the mainstream media enemy. Australia’s leadership since the first sell out to internationalism, sending our jobs over seas with the Lima Agreement, destroying our manufacturing ability has been magnified by selling our real estate, selling our utilities, Electricity, Phones, Banking, Gas, and even our Water. What’s next the air we breath, or our body parts?
Would those who sacrificed their lives in days gone bye, recognise the slave state we have to-day with the future that they were promised. It seems that all threats are used to enchain and bind the people, if they do not have enough threats local enough, they will import them by mass migration, yes they will flavour it with refugees fleeing from the new holocaust but when Mad Monis, or the Monash University overseas student illegally obtain firearms, that is used as the catalyst to bind the people’s steel chains a little tighter. Bit by bit they import a threat, they even follow the suspects give them bail and wait for them to fuel a media campaign against their real enemy the free thinking freedom loving Australians. That’s us, we are our leaders real enemy. They want power and we are preventing them from having it.
Thesis and Anti Thesis allows them to conqueror with Synthesis.
In two world wars, thousands of Australian and Britons were sacrificed on countless battlefields because we our nation and our Commonwealth was sadly ill-equipped, left without secondary manufacturing industries to quickly re-equip our military forces. In the First World War the bogy men on our doorstep was German New Guinea, in World War Two it was the Japanese. They were not false bogy men.  If they had won, English would not be spoken on the Australian continent, the best they could have expected would have been to be worked to death in a labour camp. Same as today, the Islamic threat, within our borders or without, it is very real. To Islamic believers, we infidels are worth less than any edible animals.

Our government even though it spends $26 billion dollars in an ever increasing defence budget, has destroyed 95% of our manufacturing ability so we have to import all equipment.  This is why our annual defence budget is so high, it has to service our nearly non existent defence force. What’s worse a defence force which cannot re-equip itself.  Our demise will be when Australia is cut off from US and other supplier’s, on the other side of the planet. For our $ 26 Billion in US dollar terms we get 58,000 personal (although by the sound of it 50,000 work in the office). We have an official Reserve of 44000 (but if anyone inspected the turn up at the drill halls they might only ever find a quarter of them, their well intentioned enthusiasm is killed off and put to sleep) We have 59 tanks, 75 towed artillery guns, 47 ships (including patrol boats) 78 attack aircraft. While Singapore with its 5 million people, and its $9 Billion dollar defence budget has 72,000 regular soldiers and 950,000 in the Reserves, 212 Battle tanks, 212 towed artillery, 41 ships (including patrol boats) 119 attack aircraft. Singapore has 6 submarines so does Australia but they have a Merchant Marine strength of 1599 ships.  They can get re-supply, they have a secondary manufacturing industry. We have 7.7 million square kilometers to defend and Singapore only has 697 square kilometres. We have a Merchant marine of 41 ships and they are manned by foreign labour. When we wonder which threat does Singapore face to spend that $9 Billion on defence. Well they have a neighbour close at hand that is militant Islamic and has 255 million people, just to Singapore’s south and just to our North. Indonesia has 476,000 regular soldiers and 400,000 in active reserves, 468 battle tanks (they make their own) and 80 towed artillery, 58 attack aircraft and 221 ships in its fleet. Indonesia only has 2 submarines but it has 1340 ships in its merchant marine. They keep all this and only spend $6 Billion in US dollar terms. They have a manufacturing industry so they can build firearms, they can build tanks and ships and even their own aircraft, it’s a lot cheaper in the long run to do it yourself. Australia could not produce an ice cream making machine, too much government regulation, wage restrictions, dearest electricity in the world, expensive real estate and no chance of competing in the world market that the big power brokers have forced on to us.

I’m sure that America was out this way, on our last day trip.
Why worry about North Korea? As it only spends $3.5Billion in US dollars terms per year and only has 700,000 in its full time defence force and 4.5 million men in reserve. 4200 Battle tanks, 4300 towed Artillery, 528 attach aircraft, its Navel strength is 967 ships. However, its 2400 Multiple Launch Rocket Systems are worrying its close neighbours. The point is when we see what our neighbours are getting for 3.5 Billion dollars and what we get to defend Australia, a continent, we should be worried about the corruption, or worried about the betrayal, or worried about intelligence of our elected leaders who are put forward as being so much smarter than us. They can criticise the quality of North Korean tanks, or Indonesian Artillery, all they want, but Australia with 59 tanks to defend 7. 7 million sq kilometres is a world joke. In World War Two Japan started the war with 2 million men, at the end of the war it was set to field 13 million men, if the USA and Britain had not have been fighting them as well, Australia would not have stood a chance, and our history would have ended in 1943.
So they are again preparing us to be the ill equipped patsies trading the lives of Australian soldiers because we are an easy target, swapping lives because we have no bullets to fire back. Does history keep repeating itself, but even after we lose another generation can we really expect to win out for the third time. That is highly unlikely.
Maybe, they are counting on the 2 million licenced shooters in Australia to be its deterrent and saviour? That is doubtful as our leaders are bent on imposing another disaster on us.

NFA Registering Ammunition Sales.
In most of the other Australian states they have already put the new National Firearms Agreement alterations through the parliament. Queensland is again lucky, it was due to go through the House of Representatives in the first sitting of parliament this year January, it’s the end of April and it still has not been presented to the house. Premier Palaszczuk is keeping it at bay until she is forced to an election as she thinks that when the Nationals, One Nation and Katter Party vote against it that they will win votes on that subject at the election. She has not done her mathematics and does not realise that the worm has turned that the 600,000 shooters in Queensland who are increasing in numbers every year with an increase of applications of 50 % on preceding years. She does not realise that the bad news on world security increases peoples needs for individual security and she is standing in their way of getting it. Premier Palaszczuk has also not understood the new power on the block, facebook and the internet, she underestimates the new media channel. She sees the shooters detriments as the means of her success at the next election. We have to ensure that she is defeated by encouraging all our personal friends and virtual friends plus our family members to get a licence, apply for a PTA get angry and go tell it to your local politician.
We all have to be soldiers of the working day, we are lucky we don’t have to sacrifice our lives yet for our friends and families we only have to get off our chairs and put the shoulder to the wheel to get Labour and the Greens off the benches at the next election. Now, I know that the all parties have betrayed us before, or done nothing, that is no excuse to do nothing in return. Apathy grows like cancer, we have to stand up and be shining examples of Tigers,
“In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger.” Henry V. WS.
OR Tell  MPs to VOTE AGAINST the National Firearm Agreement.
You all should know who your local MP representative is and soon with an election coming your going to know who their opposition is. Seek them out, don’t be insulting just tell them that if they vote against law abiding firearm owners they wont get your vote or you friends and families vote. If they vote for the NFA they should not get your vote.
Read if for yourself, its NOT  just a Re Category for the Adler Shotguns its further impoistions.
” This Agreement sets out minimum requirements in relation to the regulation of firearms. Nothing in this Agreement prevents jurisdictions from adopting additional, including more restrictive regulations.
Cat A
(c) Shotguns (other than semi-automatic, pump action or lever action)
Cat B
d) Lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds
Cat D.
(c) Semi-automatic, pump action and lever action shotguns with a magazine capacity greater than five rounds
20. Heirlooms
(a) Jurisdictions agree that where the owner of an heirloom firearm is unable to establish a genuine reason for possession of that firearm and/or does not qualify for a collector’s licence, jurisdictions may issue the heirloom owner with a special category of licence. The requirements of that heirloom licence must be that:
i. before the licence is issued, the owner provides sufficient proof of inheritance of the heirloom
ii. the licence apply only to a single gun, or a matched pair or set
iii. all heirloom firearms be rendered permanently inoperable
iv. the licence not authorise the discharge of the heirloom firearm or firearms in any circumstance
i. the firearms which are the subject of the collection should be of or above a defined age
ii. firearms in a collection which have been manufactured after 1 January 1946 must berendered inoperable (whether or not they are otherwise only required to be rendered temporarily inoperable according to paragraph 19(b))
iii. collectors may not possess ammunition for a collection firearm
iv. any attempt to restore firearms in the collection to usable condition should be regarded as a serious offence and subject to severe penalties
v. all operating firearms which are owned by the collector under separate licensing arrangements should be subject to the same level of regulation as any other operating firearm
vi. for the purposes of the collection of Category H firearms, genuine historical collectors must
1. be a member of a state or territory accredited historical firearm collectors society
2 .have their licence application endorsed by an accredited historical firearms collectors society
3. comply with strict storage requirements
4. display a commitment as a student of arms in order to collect or retain post-1946 handguns.
54. Jurisdictions will legislate to allow the sale of ammunition only for those firearms for which the purchaser is licenced, and impose limits on the quantity of ammunition that may be purchased in a given period.
(This means that all sales will have to be recorded to whom and which licence another register, more public servants more taxes, more impositions)
55. On the purchase of ammunition, the relevant licence must be produced
(d) the commercial transport of ammunition with firearms is prohibited
.43. Jurisdictions agree that the issuing of a permit must be subject to a waiting period of at least 28 days to enable appropriate checks to be made on licensees in order to ascertain whether circumstances have occurred since the issuing of the original licence which would render the licensee unsuitable to possess the firearm or which would render the licensee ineligible for that type of firearm.
45. Jurisdictions should consider imposing greater storage requirements where multiple firearms are kept on the same property.
All information has to be forwarded to the national information-sharing hub.
We all know who they share the information with.
This ‘national information-sharing hub’ seems separate to Crimtrac which is where all licenced shooters have been recorded with what they own up to date. Incomplete, though it has been, we all know that information from it has leaked to people whose only work choice is robbery under arms.
All the above affects all of us and all those in the community that are worth defending as when the bad people don’t know who owns firearms and who does not, that lack of knowledge protects the whole law abiding community.
One of the reasons why I oppose registration so vigorously is because I know it does not work. I can remember many years ago, I lived in a remote mountain country area, we had road edges with 1500 feet drops on one side. Ben Buckly a pilot, crop duster, fire spotter spotted a windscreen stuck in a tree that had a car attached to it. SES went in found the Voltswagon stuck up in a tree it had come off the road a 1000 feet above and ended up in a tree top. No one could see a body in the mountain bush so it stayed there. Some years later some hunters found human remains down below that point in a dried up creek bed. The local Policeman went it and found that the bones had a broken leg and assumed it could have been the driver from the voltswagon. He bagged and tagged the bones and sent it off to Melbourne to Police Headquarters for identification. I asked him a few years later did they ever find out who the person was. The answer was amusing at the time. He had continued to chase up the results but Police Headquarters had lost the bag somewhere between lost property and the morgue. No one ever knew who he was. Sad that the man, was lost when he went over the edge and then he was lost when he managed to get out of his car to the ground, that’s when more than likely he broke his leg, then he was lost as he waited for rescue after he crawled to the creek. His bones were found but then he was lost again by the Victorian Police. The bit that stuck in my mind, was that if they can lose a bag of human remains, if they can lose a car, how do they hope to retain all the firearm information. Well we know they cannot, but if they lose 1 % or 10 % they can never justify that the information is going to be any use as when they want to recover the information more than likely it will not be available human error will have erased it.

West Australian gun users are calling for tougher laws and communal weapons safes after a spate of gun thefts police are blaming on bikie gangs.
ABC news reported last week that due to guns being stolen from farms. A farmer,  Murray Pederick thinks a better solution would be communal gun safes in towns where they can be overseen by police.
Detectives have recently charged 10 people in connection with firearms thefts from rural properties in the Kojonup and Katanning districts.
Police Minister Michelle Roberts has promised to act.
“Theft of firearms is an incredibly serious issue, I will be raising the issue of facilities to store guns with the Police Commissioner,” she said.
So now again we have that old anti gun push for Communal Armouries where we can only draw them out when we need them.
The article does not explain that as in Queensland when firearm are stolen from licensed shooters the victim is often the one charged not the perpetrator. If the person leaves his key where it can be easily found, if he or she leaves a window open and in Western Australia police are even charging farmers for not locking up the tools that were used to break open the safe. Once they get a conviction then its another feather in the policeman hat and another conviction that they can call a firearm crime and this can be used against all of us.
The responsibility is on the Police we pay a huge amount of taxes to pay them to put away the bad guys. They neglect their duty and blame the victim, what’s worse they prosecute the victim after punishing him by forcing him to have all the security under the sun. As above in WA. CCTV, burglar alarms, safes.
The Police are culpable they prevent us from defending ourselves and refuse to defend or protect us. Then like parasites they still want a bigger pound of our flesh. Once they get huge collective Armouries all the eggs will be in one basket for them and then the terrorists or crims, or invaders will be able to come and take what they want.
In about 1960 when I was twelve, I went to the local Drill hall two nights a week and many Sunday mornings as I had joined the 22nd Cheshire Regiment Army Cadets. I knew nothing, I was always wondering where the other 21 Cheshire Regiments were. I also went to small bore shooting with the small bore club that used the same 25 yard indoor range at the back of the Drill Hall, my whole idea of being in the part time army was for shooting, but wanting to take up every opportunity I shot smallbore competition as the Army never did enough. After about six months I saved up my wages, (as a bicycle order boy) to buy a very second hand .22 BSA target rifle it had been a Martini Cadet that had been converted to.22 by BSA. It had elementary peep sites and it was slightly better then the club Mossberg training rifle that I had started off with. As I could not apply for my firearm certificate to own that .22 rifle, I only had a 10 shilling licence that could allow me to own an air rifle and a .410 shotgun, the BSA had to stay in the Armoury with the club guns. The Armoury was the territorial and army cadet Armoury it was a steal vault in a very strong brick building that had a full time guard. So everyone presumed that it was very safe, that was until a few months went by and the IRA called in on a Saturday night stuck a pistol in the face of the guard got the keys and helped themselves to everything, they must have had a truck. They had taken the Bren Guns the single Vickers Medium machine gun that I was very keen on, they took all the two inch mortars, the Enfield and Webley revolvers. They took all the .303 Lee Enfields No 4s even the one that had been issued to me, at no charge. They took all the ammunition thousands of rounds of 303, the drill practice mortars and the few real ones, .380 ammunition and all of the Small Bore Clubs .22 ammunition and what was much worse, this fairly put me off admitting to having an Irish line of descent for years, they stole my BSA. On the Tuesday night when we turned up for drill I felt disarmed, useless, so did the whole company. We were ‘gobsmacked’, at the thought of the work and labour I had put in to raise the money for my .22 BSA.  I was angry, I would have been pleased to have wiped out half of Ireland on the off chance that they might have remotely once known an IRA man. Angry and yet heartbroken, I can remember marching home that night with a tear in my eye. I was so ashamed about what the IRA had done and that I had lost my rifle.
In the weeks to come when we were re-issued with .303 Lee Enfields we took them home with us. No ammunition or course but rifle and bayonet, boots polished, belt blanco’ed and brass cap badge gleaming I proudly marched to the Bus stop and caught the number 40, then came home the same way. No one ever blinked an eye, all the older territorials and the reserve all took their rifles home. I always wanted to be the one to take home the Bren but was never picked. The message had made its mark, we had the IRA to thank for that the rifles were safer in everyone’s homes. It was un safe to make a target with all those eggs in one basket to carry out the same effect the IRA would have had to rob every one of us. The message is just as clear today, if the government does this the Islamic Bikers Groups, or ISIS equivalent will know just where to tool up. ISIS would not have the good manners to stop the truck and phone the local police, so they could go and let the tied up guard out of the Armoury. He would be dead.
Australia has never ever been under a greater threat than it is today, we can hope that the threat goes away but Australia will never be secure until it has the industry and skill to make its own arms and have them close at hand. Veterans, the few that are left  understand the importance of defence in all of its contexts, so too should we all, we have to defend our rights to self defence. Like when the chips are down its time to stand up, stand up for your mates, your friends and families. Take a part, phone up your local MP.

Every Man Should Have A Rifle

Every Man And Woman should take their place at the Sea Shore.
So I sit and write and ponder, while the house is deaf and dumb,
Seeing visions “over yonder” of the war I know must come.
In the corner – not a vision – but a sign for coming days
Stand a box of ammunition and a rifle in green baize.
And in this, the living present, let the word go through the land,
Every tradesman, clerk and peasant should have these two things at hand.
No – no ranting song is needed, and no meeting, flag or fuss –
In the future, still unheeded, shall the spirit come to us!
Without feathers, drum or riot on the day that is to be,
We shall march down, very quiet, to our stations by the sea.
While the bitter parties stifle every voice that warns of war,
Every man should own a rifle and have cartridges in store!
Henry Lawson :
