The Joseph Method Of Flint & Steel Fire Lighting By Keith H Burgess

Bugging Out. Facing Facts. What Will It Take?

Facing Facts. What will it take?
I haven’t written a list to work from here, just thoughts as they occur, so I suggest you jot down any of your own thoughts when reading this & use them in your reply to this post. There is bound to be things that I have missed & it is good to get other people’s perspective.
Okay, let us assume something has gone down & you have to leave your present abode & go bush, what can you expect to have to do to stay as safe as possible under the circumstances. For one you will have to stay alert all the time, even if you are at your retreat or you’re off the grid home, your life will be under threat 24/7! This can be very stressful, but you will not be able to drop your guard unless you are in a secure place & there are others taking their turn on watch.
If you are on the trail, there will be no lighting of fires, so no warmth from fire & no cooking, no warm food. This means you will have to carry foods that do not require cooking.
Shelter: You will not be erecting a shelter, come rain or snow you cannot afford to make yourself visible. Tents are an absolute NO, they stand out too much, camo pattern included. So what will you have to do? You will have to roll yourself up in a canvas or oil cloth somewhere hidden by brush, rocks, in a hollow log or a hollow tree or in low ground. Bear in mind that anyone else on the trail will also be looking for likely places to camp so hide yourself well. If there are two or more of you then take turns at keeping watch, but the watch will still have to be well hidden.
Don’t zip yourself up in a sleeping bag, you can’t protect yourself stitched up in a bag, & you can’t move fast enough from inside a bag. Pure wool blankets are the best choice. Keep weapons close to hand so they can be used in an instant. You don’t have to wear camo clothing, but you will need to stick to earth colours, no bright coloured clothing!
When you stop for a break on the trail DO NOT take off your pack! Stay as you are so that you are ready to move or run at a moment’s notice. You may be able to throw yourself into a hidden place, in which case you don’t want your pack left sitting in the open. If you have to run for it, you cannot afford to leave your pack behind, & you will not be able to move as well carrying your pack in your hand as you would if it were on your back.
Animal trails are the easiest way to travel, but if you are wearing modern footwear you are likely to leave sign. Moccasins can leave sign too, but the print does not show as clearly as the tread on a modern boot & may go unseen by all but a trained tracker. If you are wearing modern boots with a tread, stay off clear ground trails. If you are in a group & crossing open ground, spread out so you do not leave a clear trodden trail.
If you can follow a water course, this is a good idea. This will mean you have a constant source of drinking water & the chance of trapping or hunting game. Always boil the water if you can, with a no fire rule early on this will not be possible, but there are tablets you can use to purify water.
Take care when collecting water not to leave any boot prints in the mud or on the bank.
Toilet: If you were pursued by military with dogs, then your best bet is to defecate in a plastic bag, add a rock, tie the bag well & drop in a river or creek. Other than this choose a place well away from the trail & cover it well. Smell & or buzzing flies are a dead giveaway that someone has defecated close-by!
Foods: for trail food I suggest a mix of nuts, sunflower seeds, raisins or sultanas & chocolate bits in a bag. This will keep you going on the trail, it is nutritious & tasty & it may be the only comfort you will get for the first few days.
DO NOT weigh yourself down with modern gadgets that are going to self destruct with time! You have more important things to carry such as medical supplies, ammunition, water & food. It will be quite a while before you can afford to hunt or trap & cook game, you may forage along the way but ONLY along your path, do not stray! So take plenty of dried foods & foods that you can eat without cooking.
Can anyone add more information or suggestions here?

Ron Owen's thoughts For The Week. Australian citizen's rights & freedoms.

Does anyone else besides me, see the insanity of voting for a government, that takes our money, (Taxes are theft) to buy guns and give them to men, who will come and take our guns from us? So they can extort even more money and property from us?

“The reason why men enter into society is the preservation of their property.” John Locke
So why do we put up with this system?
We do not have a 2nd Amendment, but we do have A Bill of Rights and our Monarch is Bound by Oath to uphold it.

British Funny Hat Championships keep the plebs happy.
Royal Weddings are just diversions to placate the masses, a fancy hat competition, while it reminds thinkers that the keeper of our “Rights and Privileges” who swears to uphold them in the Coronation Oath is not doing her job. Our Constitutions State and Federal gives the Queen the power to disallow all State and Federal Legislation that contravenes her Coronation Oath to preserve the peoples Rights and Privileges.
Commonwealth Constitution of Australia Act 9th July 1900.
Disallowance by the Queen.
59. The Queen may disallow any law within one year from the Governor-General’s assent, and such disallowance on being made known by the Governor-General by speech or message to each of the Houses of the Parliament, or by Proclamation, shall annul the law from the day when the disallowance is so made known.
The legal obligations surrounding the Coronation Oath are set out in Halsbury’s Laws of England.
“28. The Crown’s duty towards the subject. The essential duties of the Crown towards the subject are now to be found expressed in the terms of the oaths which every monarch is required to take before or at the Coronation. The duties imposed by the coronation oath are:
(1) to govern the peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the dominions etc belonging or pertaining to them according to their respective laws and customs;
(2) to cause law and justice in mercy to be executed in all judgments, to the monarch’s power;
it is declared that ‘whereas the laws of England are the birthright of the people thereof and all the kings and queens who shall ascend the throne of this realm ought to administer the government of the same according to the said laws and all their officers and ministers ought to serve them respectively according to the same…the same are….ratified and confirmed accordingly.”
Bill of Rights s 1; Act of Settlement, Magna Carta of 1215.
The Bill of Rights 1689, first listed the wrongs,
“by causing Protestants to be disarmed at the same time when papists were both armed and employed contrary to law;” then proclaimed the right to address that problem.
“Protestants may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions and as allowed by law;”
Which in effect gave that right to all who were law abiding.
As the Monarch of the day has disallowed parliamentary legislation in the past why did this not occur with the legislation that in effect stole those rights from us all.
It was not that shooters were a minority, at present over 20% of the electorate, it was because we were complacent, we left it to someone else to defend our rights, our placid conservatism silenced our rage. Yes, some of us, not even 1 % walked down the streets of our capitals, and even less wrote a letter of dissatisfaction, then nearly all handed in firearms, some even handed in all they had and walked away. Falsely believing that is would not effect them, so why worry about it.
We lost our property, we lost our pride and we lost the right to defend our families and property. As I knew many years ago that disarmament of the people was not a public safety issue, or misinformed politicians, that it followed and international agenda to suit people who wanted control of all systems of power.

In the 1980s I was called a Conspiracy Theorist,
In the 1990s I was a Fear Monger,
In the 2000s I was an Agitator
In the two thousand teens I am called a prophesier. Like the original Cassandra, I too was cursed to utter prophecies which were true but which no one believed.
A hundred years ago we were free to own property, when land was purchased you owned the land, the sky above it and the soil below it to the centre of the earth. You owned the water that fell on it and the water below it. You owned the timber on it and the gold under it, All property was sacrosanct, inviolable, impregnable, bomb proof, religion defended it and the law guaranteed it. They hanged horse thieves and any sort of property theft was going to deserve a fate sometimes worse than death transportation. You could lawfully kill anyone who was attempting to steal your property.
I can remember 40 years ago thinking, the world has been turned up side, but never really grasped the idea, that free people could fall so far into the cess pit of socialism. I can remember a work mate telling me before long that the government would do anything for money, that before long they would legalise all gambling, they  would tax the casino’s, that they would legalise prostitution and run the brothels, that they would legalise the drugs and sell them cheaper than cigarettes. Not quite on the drugs yet but they are handing them out for free. It looks like my mates prophecy will be true, but will we care?
“Whoever owns the soil, holds title all the way up to the heavens and down to the depths of hell”.
Originally, the common law position was that the minerals belonged to the landowner: they were regarded as an inherent product of the land itself. The common law assumed that the person who owned the land owned not only the surface of the earth, but also the space above that surface and the soil below that surface.We are now conquered slaves, but knowing that public safety was Not the reason for the imposition of firearm restrictions made some of us think about the real reason that governments were so desperate to impose their firearm controls.

Look now, See what we have all lost, and yes ‘All of us have lost’, the media tells us that farmers have lost the right to clear vegetation from their own land, so the farmers, like firearm owners, are isolated by the media and the politicians they are the only ones affected, it does not affect you Mr and Mrs Average, but it does, and the loss for one property right affects us all. Not just in the price of food and its production but in the loss of your property rights when its your turn for the government to take what’s yours.
‘No Man is an Island’
No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
John Donne 1624 AD.
No one really protested with Peter Spencer who perched himself on a wind-monitoring mast on his Shannon’s Flat property north of Cooma and went on a hunger strike in 2009.

He was an individual who fought for compensation for not being allowed to clear his property under NSW native vegetation laws and accurately warned that this would eventually affect every farmer in Australia. Well he was right.
He told the press that he would not eat or come down until the then Prime Minister Kevin Rudd would admit that the Australian Government owes farmers like him $100 billion for capturing carbon in their vegetation that they have lost the use of due to land clearing bans.
Mr Spencer said the farmers’ case was like the Government coming to a $1 million suburban home in Canberra and taking three quarters of its equity to fund services. That was a warning but the rest of the people did nothing, just got on with making the most out of what they have, until the government steals their property rights. Just the same as they ignored the law abiding firearm owners. Mr Spencer lasted 53 days and had an eviction notice from the government a few days later.
“The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out… without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, intolerable.” H. L. Mencken
Same with water, we ignored the warnings of farmers being licenced to pay for the water in their own Dams, not just water pumped from a creek or river, but water that falls from the sky on their own property. The next attack on property rights came to our attention in July 2017 when a levy was introduced by the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resources Management (NRM) Board in the Western Mount Lofty Ranges. (WMLR)
The amount charged for the levy is calculated according to how much water each farmer is allowed to use under their licence, not how much water they actually use. This must be paid on top of having their Dam water licenced.
Wording on the bills says failure to pay for the levy within 90 days may result in debt collectors being sent. Any farmers refusing or unable to pay the levy will be obliged to relinquish their licence. Farmers have 90 days to pay before debt recovery action is initiated

Seventeen independent Fleurieu farmers in the dairy, beef and horticulture industries protested but where were the farmers from the rest of South Australia or the rest of Australia as this sort of cancer spreads quickly.
In South Australia, the state government claims that a person’s roof is the same thing as “land”. Under section 124 of the Natural Resources Management Act 2004, water flowing over land is surface water, and rights to surface water are vested in the state.
National water policy is embodied in the National Water Initiative Agreement. Clause 2 of the Agreement says, “In Australia, water is vested in governments that allow other parties to access and use water for a variety of purposes”. The Federal Government claims that rainwater falling on roofs is vested in governments.
On February 27, 2007, the state government released its “runoff policy” for surface water in surface water prescribed areas. A “water user” capturing rainwater in excess of 500 kilolitres requires a water licence, and then may be eligible to pay a water based levy if that water is used for commercial purposes. The policy applies to rainwater tanks, on the presumption that water collected from roofs for rainwater tanks in South Australia is “surface water”.
“If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there’d be ashortage of sand.” Milton Friedman
Same too with the mineral rights under the ground, this was the property of the owner and of special interest to me as beneath Gympie is a huge bed of Coal that goes up the coast as far as Bundaberg with that coal is a huge deposit of Shale Oil and Gas, when diesel fuel is reaching $1.50 a litre and I know that I’m sitting on deposit of fuel that is worth more than any lottery win in the world, I know its 450 metres below the surface but I want to drill down and use that oil and gas to run my vehicle and alleviate my electricity bills. As it is now, the State and Federal Governments make billions more out of the increased taxation percentage from the higher prices. The longer the people’s resources stay in the ground, un utilised the higher the prices go. Fuel Diesel and petrol have been manufactured from Coal since the beginning of the 20 century and in the 1940s Coal was supplying 91 % of Germany’s engine fuel. The process of making Diesel from Coal was first developed when Rudolph Diesel was pioneering the Diesel engine. Standard Oil (Rockefeller’s) sold the process of manufacturing petrol to IG Farben in the 1930s. It is just a different refining process and we have vast amounts of coal to use and ultimately that resource belongs to the individuals that own the land that above it.
Originally, the common law position was that the minerals belonged to the landowner: they were regarded as an inherent product of the land itself. The common law assumed that the person who owned the land owned not only the surface of the earth, but also the space above that surface and the soil below that surface.
Your property used to be your Castle.
Australians rightly perceived their homes as their Castle, and this was represented in the movie The Castle, as the Kerrigan family fought attempts by the government to resume their land in order to expand the airport. This view of a man’s land as his castle harks back to the origins of Common Law and it was acknowledged by the 17th Century Jurist Lord Coke who pronounced that ‘Everyone is to him as his Castle and Fortress’.. In doing so, the landowner essentially enjoys a right to exclude any person from entering his land. This common law position a landowner’s right to control those who enter his land over land has been altered by statute in all jurisdictions in Australia, granting the Crown the right to reserve ownership and control over petroleum (including Coal Seam Gas) and minerals. The case Plenty v Dillon confirmed in law that a landholder has a right to exclude others from entering their land as a trespasser. This case involved a successful action for trespass brought by a landowner against two police officers who entered premises without consent. The High Court of Australia concluded the landowner did not grant an implied consent to the police offers to enter the premises, and therefore held that the police officers were trespassing.

Under common law, landowners owned sub-surface minerals and could prevent anyone from excavating them; as doing so would constitute a trespass. The only qualification was the right of the Crown to extract gold and silver, characterised by the common law as “Royal Minerals”.
Most landowners in Australia presume that they have absolute ownership over their land, and therefore the right to refuse others from coming onto their land. Given the common law position regarding rights over land, and the concept of trespass to land that was reinforced by Plenty v Dillon, landholders mistakenly presume that they have the right to exclude petroleum companies from entering their land. This common law position was, however, significantly limited when specific State legislation vested the ownership of minerals contained within the soil of private landholdings in the Crown.
In Victoria, the Mines Resource (Sustainable Development) Act 1990 (Vic) states that the Crown owns all minerals (with a few small exemptions). Similar provisions exist in other states.
This statutory vesting means private landowners no longer control the minerals in their sub-surface soil, even though they continue to own the land itself. As owner of the minerals, the Crown is legally entitled to grant exploratory or mining licences to mining companies, allowing companies to explore for or extract sub-surface minerals. The effect of this process upon private landholdings is often devastating.
This legislation is known as a Crown reservation in respect of minerals and petroleum. Queensland – Crown rights over Coal Seam Gas under the land In Queensland, this reservation is outlined in section 27 of the Petroleum and Gas (Production and Gas) 2004 (Qld) (PGPGA), which notes that a Crown grant is taken to contain a reservation to the state of all petroleum on or below the surface, and the exclusive right to undertake petroleum activities of to authorize others to undertake petroleum activities. Furthermore, section 26 of the PGPGA states that petroleum is the property of the State, and a person does not acquire any property in relation to the property irrespective of whether the property is freehold or leasehold. Therefore, under the concept of Crown reservation, the Crown in Queensland owns all of the petroleum under the land, and has the right to take the petroleum or grant a title to another in order to explore for and/or produce petroleum, including coal seam, or shale gas. This means that under the system of law in Australia, the Queensland government can allow separate interests to be held over a single property. This concept, known as fragmentation of property rights, means that the land can be owned by a farmer as a freehold interest, yet entitle a petroleum company to hold a title that allows it to enter the property to search for and produce gas. Australia is not the United States The position in the United States regarding minerals ownership and Crown reservation differs to the Australia. In the US, the development of onshore gas resources operates under a system of private ownership of resources, known as the law of capture. Under the US system of land tenure, a landowner has absolute ownership over his land (known as allodial title). This includes ownership over all of the resources (including petroleum) that lie under the land he owns. In the USA since the landowner owns all of the resources under his land, he has the right to accept or refuse offers from a company to develop these onshore gas resources.
Can see from the above that firearm ownership is tied to freedom, and the ownership of property. If the Americans ignore their Rights under the Second Amendment as we have in Australia and Britain they could expect to lose all remaining Rights as we have.
Can we see that our American cousins are Free and we are Slaves?
Do we have a government that sees us as property?
Are we just ‘Tax Produces’ who barely own the breath in our lungs?
Remember my opening questions,
“Does anyone else besides me, see the insanity of voting for a government, that takes our money, (Taxes are theft) to buy guns and give them to men, who will come and take our guns from us? So they can extort even more money and property from us?
We need an Oliver Cromwell not to remove the system that has served free people for hundreds of years, but an Oliver that could make a Monarch follow their Coronation Oath, and sacking a tyrannical parliament with the words.
“Mr. Speaker. May I have your permission to address this assembly? By all means, sir. My lords, honourable members… …I have always desired, above my life, a free Parliament… …sitting by the authority of the good people of this nation. A Parliament open and visible, to be seen by all men. Instead of uniting the good people of this nation… …with righteousness and peace… …which would have been a glorious and Christian thing to have done… …what do I find? Anarchy, corruption… …division and dissatisfaction. I say that the enemies of this nation… …have flourished under your protection. You were from the beginning a provisional government… …not truly representative of the people. For have the people elected you? Has this House gone once to the people it purports to represent? No, it has not! And after six years of misgovernment, what do we find? Sir Thomas Fairfax moves a bill to give this House a further lease… …of its worthless and dishonourable life! Gentlemen, an immovable Parliament is more obnoxious… …than an immovable king! You are drunkards, tricksters, villains, whoremasters… …godless, self-seeking, ambitious tricksters. You are no more capable of conducting the nation’s affairs… …than you are of running a brothel! You are scum, sir. And not truly elected scum at that. This is no Parliament. I shall put an end to it. I hereby declare this Parliament dissolved! – Colonel Harrison! – Yes, sir. Troops forward! (Speech from the movie Cromwell)
Oliver we need another Oliver.
With yet another school shooting in the USA we will be assaulted by the anti gun and anti freedom paparazzi we will have to feed the chickens, yet again with truth. These links will assist.
Don’t forget to mention where Gun Control Australia, Get Back and the Open Society and the friends of the ABC and SBS get their funds from. Its foreign intervention of the politics of our country, this socialistic support that has worked away like white ants, deviously destroying the wishes and aspirations of the Australian people. This link concerns Florida but his money via his foundation organisations syphon money from the International Mega Corporation through to Unions and the Australian Labor Party and the Greens. The Genesis for these international agenda are the big banks and oil companies that rule the world. They want to ensure that resources stay in the ground, they want us all on the world wage, they want no country boundaries. They want us poor and defenceless so that they can exploit what was once our resources without any interruptions.

Minutemen volunteers facing off British soldiers who had orders to disarm them, on Lexington Common, Massachusetts, in the first battle in the War of Independence, 19th April 1775. Original artist William Barnes Wollen.
After the above event Patrick Henry made a statement that has resounded though the centuries.
“They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.” “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”
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.

Mental health check put forward in 2016 WA gun law inquiry !!!

NOTICE: Pay attention people! This is subject to interpretation and misuse! Do you have any idea how many people in Australia are being treated for "Depression"???!!! This is NOT good. This could be the government's big foot in the door for more gun confiscation.
Is your doctor anti-gun???

'Gun laws slipping': WA massacre puts spotlight on Aust gun control

We NEED to stop talking about more firearms restrictions and start talking about WHY people are getting killed!!! I don’t give a rat’s arse what they are killed with, car, knife, hammer, gun, they are dead! Why aren't concerned groups & people asking “why are people killing?” AND “What can be done to stop the killing?” Are they all brain dead???!!!
The family at the Margaret River property that got shot needed help, but they did not get that help, & IF what the police are saying is true, that the shooter was the Grandfather, then it is pretty obvious that they did need help!

 Three guns found at the Margaret River property shootings, I have more than three guns & I haven't killed anyone! Hell, I am not legally allowed to use my guns to defend the lives of my family or to save my own life! What is a matter with people, & it is people, not just the government. People who call for disarmament! Don't they understand that criminals do NOT obey the laws???!!! They can confiscate the guns totally from all the law abiding licenced gun owners in Australia, & the criminals will still have guns, people will still be killed. When they realise this will they give our guns back to us? Hell no! What is done is done!
I am finding it really hard to understand why the majority of Australians are so bloody stupid & ignorant. This is a societal problem, not a gun problem, & so long as allow this corrupt to the core government to RULE Australia, then our society's problems with crime, poverty, homelessness, unemployment, high taxes, high rates, low wages, inappropriate council fees, environmental pollution, Big government & corporatism & the loss of our human rights will continue! This government in total is the cause of all our problems, & yet the majority of Australians either can't see that or just refuse to do anything about that!
So every day we will continue to read about crime, read about killings, rapes, muggings, kidnappings, violent attacks, robberies with violence knowing that all this could be significantly reduced by implementing a new government system & yet knowing it will never happen. No wonder there is so much depression & suicides. I am now lost for words.

Home Invasions & Assaults 2018

Humane Right to Armed Self defence.
The right of self-defense (also called, when it applies to the defense of another, alter ego defense, defense of others, defense of a third person) is the right for people to use reasonable force or defensive force, for the purpose of defending one's own life or the lives of others, including, in certain circumstances, the use of deadly force.[1]
If a defendant uses defensive force because of a threat of deadly or grievous harm by the other person, or a reasonable perception of such harm, the defendant is said to have a "perfect self-defensejustification.[2] If defendant uses defensive force because of such a perception, and the perception is not reasonable, the defendant may have an "imperfect self-defense" as an excuse.[2]

Thwarted by the demise of its global gun ban treaty, the United Nations declares the human right of self-defense null and void

As far as I can tell, no country is listed for restricting the natural, civil and human right to self-defense. So, it appears Human Rights Watch doesn’t care that people are prevented by their governments from protecting themselves. 

In legal terms, Australians have a right of self-defence. While some states rely on the common law and others have it enshrined in statute, the right itself is never questioned. Moreover, juries consistently refuse to convict those charged with serious offences whenever self-defence is made out.
What we don’t have is the practical ability to exercise that right. Possessing any object specifically for the purpose of self-defence, lethal or non-lethal, is a criminal offence. There are many women, raped and/or murdered, who would have been liable to prosecution had they been carrying anything that might have saved them.
The massive Police and government anti-terror apparatus failed yet again to protect the public. How many more reminders do the public need that the state is not their god and saviour? This is not a sleight at Police, but as we’ve discussed at length previously they are reactionary only and in terms of firearms, held to a lower standard than Category H licence holders. Even Queensland Police admit this.
It’s time to get serious about empowering the public by letting them have the opportunity to defend themselves, and end this useless and dangerous obsession with denying people the basic means and right to practical non-lethal and licenced lethal forms of self-defence, in the name of ‘muh public safety’.
RESIDENTS have backed calls from the Shooters Union Australia for the government to clarify and strengthen self-defence laws.
SUA vice president David Brown wants the ambiguity around gun laws, which leave licensed firearms owners at risk of prosecution for defending their homes from intruders, clarified.
Mr Brown this week told The Chronicle guns were the "only means of levelling the playing field against an aggressor", and his view has earned support from readers.
Human Rights Act 2004 Australia.
9 Right to life (1) Everyone has the right to life. In particular, no-one may be arbitrarily deprived of life.
11 Protection of the family and children Note Family has a broad meaning (see ICCPR General Comment 19 (39th session, 1990)). (1) The family is the natural and basic group unit of society and is entitled to be protected by society. (2) Every child has the right to the protection needed by the child because of being a child, without distinction or discrimination of any kind.
18 Right to liberty and security of person (1) Everyone has the right to liberty and security of person.
Part 3B Limits on human rights 28 Human rights may be limited (1) Human rights may be subject only to reasonable limits set by laws that can be demonstrably justified in a free and democratic society. (2) In deciding whether a limit is reasonable, all relevant factors must be considered, including the following: (a) the nature of the right affected; (b) the importance of the purpose of the limitation; (c) the nature and extent of the limitation; (d) the relationship between the limitation and its purpose; (e) any less restrictive means reasonably available to achieve the purpose the limitation seeks to achieve.

There is nothing in this human rights document that actually states that we have a right to defend ourselves or our families. The United Nations says that we have NO right to defend ourselves or our families against harm!

Possessing any object specifically for the purpose of self-defence, lethal or non-lethal, is a criminal offence (in Australia). There are many women, raped and/or murdered, who would have been liable to prosecution had they been carrying anything that might have saved them.

Self Defence Laws In Australia.

You are not legally allowed to use a gun to defend yourself or your family. Whatever you do use, you will have to prove that it was a random choice of normal items you had in the house at the time. You can't for instance have a baseball bat unless you can prove you regularly play baseball. You can't have a table or chair leg by your bed to use in self defence. If the assailant has a gun, the best you can do is try & get your family out of the house, but bare in mind they may be in danger outside too! You can use a chair or a kitchen knife but these have their limitations if there is more than one intruder & they are armed. Basically you have a choice, you can either be a victim, or you can be a criminal!
