On election day 25th November 2017, either the 600,000 licenced
shooters of Queensland will work together, to put Labor, LNP and Greens at the
bottom of the voting ticket and pro firearm ownership candidates at the top,
and giving the forces against us the biggest electoral defeat since Barrie
Unsworth (NSW) in March 1988, or we will be further tyrannised for another 25
years. We have been waiting for this golden opportunity for a quarter of a
century. If we cannot do it this time we do not deserve another chance.
Get Political for Two Weeks and Make a Difference to Our Future.
Never have the forces of evil been in such disarray. Never has it
been so open and shut, we either work to put the minor pro shooting parties and
independents in a coalition to improve our plight, or follow your family voting
pattern, (vote LNP or Labor or Green) then hand your guns in, or go live
in New Zealand. You are either with us, or against us.
Now, is the Time.
Now is the Time to get political, even if you have to miss out on a few
Firstly, and most importantly contact candidates and check their
credentials. Ask them to convince you that they will persistently work to
A. The end of long arm registration,
B. For the individual right of law abiding citizens to own firearms
(semi autos, pumps hand guns) as of right and suitable for their needs,
C. For the individual right of all law abiding citizens to use
firearms to defend their lives, family and property.
If you do nothing else, that small effort of canvassing candidates
will cause change, as that will alert candidates to which issue they won or
lost the election.
Secondly, chose a candidate to assist, put some signs out for them,
offer to hand out how to vote cards for them. Write letters to the editor of
local papers, they should be swamped with letters, share all pro gun articles
on social media and most importantly ‘verbalise’, speak out, to all your
friends and family about the importance of voting the right way. Explain to
all, the importance of filling out every square on the voting paper, as this is
full preferential voting, this gives the minor parties and independents the
best opportunity of gaining seats.
First Past the Post system of voting gives the major parties an
in a five candidate election a party with 22% of the vote can have a
and 78% of the electorate can hate his guts. When second and third preferences
are counted if the candidate does not get over 50% of the first preferences
that does not happen and a candidate that is more suited to
most of the peoples ideas wins.
If LNP, Labor or Greens gain power we will have another four years of
the Queensland Police making policy to suit themselves from their ivory tower
that is built on our backs, paid for by the impositions of fees and charges for
our innocence under their dogmatic indolence.
When deciding who to put last out of Labor, LNP and Greens, you have
to punish the sitting member out of the three by putting them last as they will
have the chance of needing your preference.
The LNP have to be counted as in Coalition with Labor. They Vote with
Labor, so they are Labor.
In an article printed in several Queensland newspapers where in a meeting with
LNP Members of Parliament, Tony Perrett MP (our local member) and Dr Christian
Rowan MP for Moggill and Shadow Minister for Environment and Heritage
Protection I was correctly quoted as stating,
“Most of the shooters will not vote for them (LNP) anyway” the
article did not include the reasons why shooters will not vote for the LNP,
which had been the subject intensely discussed at this meeting with Tony
Perrett MP and Dr Christian Rowan.
Furthermore to the John Howard “Great Firearm Theft of 1996/7 and the
Hand Gun Theft of 2003”, which were implemented by the National Party, Russell
Cooper and Tim Fischer where both voted with Labor. Again Tim Nichols LNP has
recently twice voted with Labor to oppose primary producers’ rights to
own Category H firearms then voted again to support the Labor party’s Weapons
Legislation (Lever Action Shotguns NFA) Amendment Regulation
If the LNP votes with Labor, if they have mutually beneficial deals
with Labor they are part and parcel of Labor, we have to deal with them
the same way we deal with Labor, we vote against them.
Admittedly, our local member, Tony Perrett, was a champion and at the
above mentioned vote on October 11th on the NFA, he crossed the floor and
with the Katter Party and One Nation Party. We all here in Gympie, hoped that
he would have stood as an Independent for the forthcoming election, but he has
chosen to remain with the LNP and as his party has caused so much pain for law
abiding firearm owners, we cannot vote for the LNP, or Labor, or the Greens. I
admire Mr Perrett for crossing the floor and would always want to count him as
one of my friends, but cannot help him, as that would assist the LNP who will
always betray firearm owners.
The Great Carrot.
On November 2, 2017 LNP Shadow Minister for the Environment Christian Rowan MP
announced in Gympie that the LNP would grant a lease of the land in the Curra
State Forest, and provide $150,000 grant to the Cooloola Range Complex
Association Inc to progress this facility. (Since that time One Nation has
given the Association a written pact that if they have the balance of power
Cooloola Range Complex Association would get the range complex site and
$500,000 to build a world class facility.)
As I am the president of the Cooloola Range Complex Association Inc this
announcement was made at the Owen Guns business premises, with Mr Perrett in
attendance. Of course, as the campaign to regain our centrefire shooting range
in Gympie has been a 25 year battle, I was very pleased to hear that news and
told them so, but also reminded them that their LNP government had been in
power several times during the last 25 years and last time in 2012, the
minister had even given an Agreement in Principle, but continually delayed and
procrastinated, preventing the project from proceeding. We also are fully aware
that the only reason that we are getting this promise after 25 years is that
the ‘One Nation party’ is now a real threat to their seats in the house of
parliament. Without the rise of One Nation the promise would not have been
forthcoming. This promise is only on the proviso that the LNP wins the forthcoming
I reminded Mr Perrett and Dr Rowan that as the LNP had betrayed the firearm
owners yet again and had twice voted with the Labor Party to impose further
impositions on law abiding firearm owners their chances of re-election were greatly
reduced and that as we spoke the firearm industry and shooting associations
were raising a million dollars to ensure their electoral demise.
The Nurenberg Defence.
Dr Rowan suggested that in politics everything was a trade-off, a compromise
and that he felt that even though he knew what they were voting for was wrong,
the LNP was a better alternative than Labor and to do some good he had to stick
with the LNP.
I reminded him that what he had described was in legal circles called
the Nuremberg defence, where German Nazi SS soldiers admitted to knowing that
they had done wrong, but blamed their superior officers for making the
That defence failed at the Nuremberg trials and those soldiers were
hanged, under the ‘common law principle’ that if you know you’re doing wrong
then you are a part of it and share the guilt.
Mr Perrett knew that further impositions on law abiding firearm
owners was against the wishes of his electorate and blatantly diametrically
opposed to the LNP’s own firearm policy so he took the correct course and
became the first and last LNP member to cross the floor of the 55th Parliament.
The rest of the LNP members followed the party dictates, followed the
orders in the same way as those German soldiers and like them have to accept
Let us hope on the evening of the 25th November that the
consequences of following the party orders ‘knowing they committed a wrong’,
results in a loss of seats and losing government. As they will remember this
mistake for the rest of their lives.
Is Firearm Ownerships a Right or Responsibility?
As at times we all have to debate the reasons for Firearm Ownership with
people who for many reasons have only had emotional negative thoughts about
firearms so we need to identify the correct logic in our philosophy so we can
properly communicate to people who have had no experience with firearms. A
friend of mine raised the issue as a question,
Is Firearm Ownerships a Right or Responsibility?
A Right, or a Responsibility? I believe it is Both.
Because it is in the same way that Day follows Night.
If not a Right, it is certainly a Responsibility,
as if you do not believe that you have a Right to defend your own
life, you may Wrongly allow someone else to choke you to death.
That cannot be Right so the opposite has to be Right.
So if you have a Responsibility to defend your life and to defend the
lives of others such as your children, or your aged parents, and not to go
quietly into the night, in the gas chamber queue.
So it would be wrong, for someone to prevent you from carrying out
your Responsibilities so it is a Right. Surely people can see that a country
has a Right to defend itself. If it does not, a foreign enemy could commit
genocide on the whole population. The government, or the leaders of that nation
have a responsibility to defend their nation in the same way that a father has
the responsibility to defend his family. Once that conclusion is made then its
is only a choice in how that defence is carried out.
Do we believe that our Defence is instantly available via a mobile
Do we really believe that Assistance is only 15 minutes
(when you could be dead in 15 seconds)
Does the State have a Responsibility to Defend
Does the Police have a Responsibility to Defend
Do Gun Free Zones have a Responsibility to Defend
Does the Church have a Responsibility to Defend its
Does the Cinema or Mall or Café have a Responsibility to Defend
Do the people have a Responsibility to defend
Who Ultimately has the Responsibility to defend
you? ONLY YOU!
Your life is a precious gift, and just like any precious gift,
you have the Responsibility to care for that and treat that life with the
We all know that initiating violence is not an appropriate thing to
do, violence when used in defence of self or others, is not only Right, but a
‘Ethics’ hallow the principle of self-defence as both a right and an
obligation, a responsibility. ‘Ethics’ also stress our moral duty to defend
others against violent attacks.
To be sure, guns may be misused to injure or kill innocent people,
but evil doers have killed and injured since time immemorial and did not need
guns, after all, Cain killed Abel with his bare hands! In Biblical times, the
slogan might well have been, “Swords don’t kill people. People kill people.”
Swords were used to commit genocide, wipe out the populations of entire
countries. Of course guns can do the same, but the main difference is that
before the firearm was invented the strongest person with the axe or sword won
every confrontation but when the equaliser, the firearm became available it
made all equal, strength was no more the massive advantage. Now, firearm
ownership can and will overcome brute strength.
Crime Rates Fall As Firearm Ownership Increases.
Australia 2.02 million licences and 6.03 million firearms
is increasing annually by 27.5 %, while crime rates fall?
Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (You Read it Right, We
Are Criminals Registered and Counted by a Commission with a responsibility for
Listing know Criminals.
NFLRS (National Firearms Licence and Registration System)
NATIONAL FIREARMS LICENSING AND REGISTRATION SYSTEM
“This system helps build the picture of firearm licence and
registration information across the country. It is used to ensure compliance
with firearm registration. The system helps firearm registries view the licence
and registration information held by other states and territories, including
firearm licence holders, licensed firearm dealers, registered firearms.”
.. there was a total of 6.03 million firearm records
.. there was a total of 2.02 million licence records
One Crooked Cop Can Sell The Lot.
This is another reason to stop firearm Registration, even if it was
up to date and we know that its not, the information that they keep has no
relevance to Criminals or Crime it just records the good people whose
information and privacy can be sold to the highest bidder in any country of the
world that is involved in Interpol. One crooked cop can sell the lot.
Lets hope we can begin to wind this nonsense back after 25th November 2017.
