REFERRAL TO LAW AND SAFETY COMMITTEE

John Barilaro Deputy Premier Minister for Regional NSW Minister for Skills Minister for Small Business Wednesday 22 November 2017 REFERRAL TO LAW AND SAFETY COMMITTEE The Deputy Premier and Minister for Regional NSW .

John Barilaro today wrote to the Legislative Assembly Committee on Law and Safety to request it inquire into the operation of the Firearms Act 2016 in relation to people to reasonably believe they are proportionately responding to a threat to them or their family. The Committee has since published the terms of reference which also include:

· The adequacy of protections for victims of a home invasion in responding to a threat;

· Previous incidents involving a response to a threat which resulted in the suspension of a firearm license; and

· The current awareness of firearms license holders of their rights and responsibilities.

Mr Barilaro said the referral to the Law and Safety Committee stems largely from an incident involving a Bungowannah Farmer David Dunstan. Mr Dunstan used an unloaded rifle to scare an intruder who came to his back door at 3AM on 14 September 2017 armed with a block of wood and a knife. His wife Andrea and their three children were at home asleep at the time. Mr Barilaro said that after meeting David and his wife Andrea in Albury on Monday 25 September 2017, he felt compelled to take action. “As a father of three daughters, David and Andrea’s story struck a nerve with me, as it did with so many people,” Mr Barilaro said. “The case raised a number of serious questions about one’s ability to defend their home and family,” he said. “I have referred this matter to the Committee and asked it to look at whether current legislation does enough to protect the victims of home invasion. “There is a lot of confusion about what our rights are to defend our homes and families from intruders, and this case has highlighted the need for the laws to be examined,” he said. Mr Barilaro said Mr Dunstan told him how upon seeing the intruder, he retrieved his unloaded rifle from the gun cupboard, and then encouraged the intruder into the passenger seat of his car. Mr Dunstan says when he drove up his driveway he was soon met by a police car which had been in the area investigating a similar incident. As part of the police investigation the offender was charged and remanded in custody. The next day police officers also seized all of Mr Dunstan’s guns and suspended his firearms license. On 3 October 2017 Andrea Dunstan also received a letter from the Licensing and Permits Authorities at the Firearms Registry, stating that her license would be subject to a special condition that prohibited her from storing or possessing firearms at their residential address or any address where her husband (Mr Dunstan) resides or frequents.

The government claims we do not need guns for self defence. I beg to differ!!!

It is even illegal in Australia for law abiding citizens to purchase or carry pepper spray or tasers. I say forget about the pepper spray & tasers, we want to be legally allowed to purchase & carry firearms for the purpose of self defence & for the defence of our families. This is a human right that we Australian citizens are being denied by our government.

Gun confiscation was never anything to do with the safety of Australian citizens, the fact that there have been no mass shootings since the Port Arthur massacre has nothing to do with it. People are killing other people with knives, such as the massacre in China, & the terrorist attack in London, no guns were used in these killings. But we NEED to be able to use a gun for our defence, do you really want to have to get into a knife fight or defend yourself with just your fists against a bigger person? This is not sensible or practicle.

This is why our anti-self defence laws need changing. We are not legally allowed to purchase or carry ANYTHING for self defence, no pepper sprays, no tasers, & no guns. HOW are we supposed to protect ourselves & our families?! This is not a one off, these home invasions, attacks, killings & rapes are happening all the time & more frequently. The police can’t protect us, and the government will NOT protect us or even give us the human right to protect ourselves.
Remember, when voting time comes, vote first for those that support the right to own guns for self defence, vote for pro gun candidates. Do NOT vote for the Liberals or Labor.

Voting For Your Rights, By Ron Owen.

Thoughts For The Week.

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 shooting events.
Firstly, and most importantly contact candidates and check their credentials. Ask them to convince you that they will persistently work to achieve

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 advantage as
in a five candidate election a party with 22% of the vote can have a majority
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
2017.

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 voted
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 election.

Betrayal.
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 decisions.

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 the consequences.

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.

Question                                                                           Answer

Do we believe that our Defence is instantly available via a mobile phone?                                                                                NO!

Do we really believe that Assistance is only 15 minutes away?                                                                                 NO! 
(when you could be dead in 15 seconds)

Does the State have a Responsibility to Defend You?                                                                                   NO!

Does the Police have a Responsibility to Defend You?                                                                                     NO!

Do Gun Free Zones have a Responsibility to Defend You?                                                                                     NO!

Does the Church have a Responsibility to Defend its parishioners?                                                                                                    NO!

Does the Cinema or Mall or Café have a Responsibility to Defend You?                                                                                     NO!

Do the people have a Responsibility to defend themselves?                                                                           YES!

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 proper respect.

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 required Responsibility.

‘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?

Gun Control & Anti-Self Defence Laws in Australia. Why?

Gun Control & Anti-Self Defence Laws in Australia. Why?

I have a lot of things going through my mind right now, so please excuse me if this post seems a little staggered.

First of all I think we need to establish the fact that the Government does not give a damn about the welfare & safety of its citizens. This is important, because the safety of its citizens is the reason given for the government’s gun control measures & its self defence legislation.


More on Gun Control & the Recent Firearms Amnesty.

Click here to view the original post.

We are seeing the use of terms such as “Illegal”, “Arsenals” “guns off the streets” & other sensationalising terms. So who made these guns illegal in the first place? Our government. Some guns being handed in now date back to WW2. All these thousands of “Illegal Guns” have supposedly been “on our streets” since WW2 & we only had one mass shooting which was in Tasmania!!! Don’t you think this sounds a little odd?

Now we are hearing about private “arsenals”, not collections or ownership but arsenals. Well if these private “arsenals” are such a risk, considered so dangerous, how come we have not had mass shootings like they have had in America? The confiscation of law abiding gun owner’s guns after the Port Arthur shooting did nothing to stop crime, because these guns BELONGED to law abiding gun owners. But now you might as well put a poster out front of every Australian home declaring “This House Not Protected With Firearms”!!! Now we are seeing regular home invasions, AND you can face charges if you try to defend yourself or your family. Australian women are attacked & assaulted every 2 minutes in Australia & all the government did was to cut funding to women’s help centers!!!

Surely we should have the right to defend ourselves & our families from harm? Yet in Australia it is illegal to purchase or carry ANYTHING for use in self defence, no guns, no pepper sprays, no tasers, not even marking paint!

Farmers used to be able to carry hand guns whilst they went about their daily work. Some carried snake guns which were cut down .410 shotguns for protection against snakes. Not any more. These were law abiding people who were suddenly classed as criminals because the government deemed it so! Shotguns, the farmer’s stock in trade along with the little .22 rimfire rifle is now under attack by the Greens & the anti-gun lobby. Semi-auto .22s have already been banned, & now they want our shotguns as well!!!

As I see it it is no good us complaining & protesting against more gun control & the loss of our human rights. We need to put an end to this. Our government is supposed to be looking after our well being, that means ALL OF US. Not just big companies, not just the wealthy, but ALL OF US. This is no longer happening. Whether it be the environment, our safety, our freedoms, our human rights, our well being, or the right to choose our own lifestyle, the right to defend ourselves, our families & our homes. All that is gone now.

I think Australians need to ask themselves where this is all going, is there no end to the government seemingly uncaring attitude. If we have lost the right to defend ourselves & our families without risk of prosecution, then what rights do we have left that matters? People are dieing out there! Do you think that this can’t happen to you? If the preservation of our freedom & the right to defend ourselves is NOT the most important thing in our lives, what is?

Worker flees as armed thugs storm Melbourne store with bats, hammers.

Yet again this store worker was not able to defend himself because it is illegal for any law abiding citizen to purchase and or carry ANYTHING for use in self defence. The criminal on the other hand abides by no such law & can use anything they want. In this case they were carrying base ball bats & hammers!
The police can not be on hand all the time, in fact they are rarely there when you need them! They can’t reach you in time either when you call 000 & yet the government persists in keeping us defenceless. Why is this? My first thought was that if you make it legal for citizens to purchase guns, pepper sprays or tasers for defence, then it will mean that criminals can do the same thing, BUT THE CRIMINALS ALREADY ARE ABLE TO USE WHATEVER THEY WANT! It is only the law abiding people that are being disadvantaged!

The Australian Government has banned the right to obtain, carry & use anything for the sole purpose of self defence, & this is the result. Australian homes & law abiding citizens are left defenseless. NO guns, NO pepper spray, NO tasers, NO anything!!! One would have thought that it was a human right to defend oneself & ones family!!! NOT IN AUSTRALIA IT ISN’T!

‘Let’s Get Rid of Mount Rushmore’; Anti-Confederate Movement Spreads To Founders

Image source: Pixabay.com

The attack on statues of Confederate leaders has now spread to the Founding Fathers and even Abraham Lincoln.

Op-Eds and news articles around the web chronicle proposals and actual efforts to erase America’s history from the public square. Some of the most disturbing efforts include:

Blasting Mount Rushmore

“Let’s Get Rid of Mount Rushmore” – the headline on a Vice op-ed by Wilbert L. Cooper reads.

“Fact is, I’m not sure there is any American president worthy of being etched into the side of a 60-foot mountain with explosives and jackhammers,” Cooper wrote. “I mean, every single one has at least been partially complicit in horrific atrocities.

Put God Back Into History And Teach Your Kids What They Won’t Learn Anywhere Else!

“… Obviously, Washington and Thomas Jefferson were remarkable individuals who helped usurp British rule in America and, eventually, establish a new empire. But they also enslaved their fellow man, committing special kinds of inhumane acts that should never be confined to footnotes. Unfortunately, that is exactly how those troublesome truths are treated when you face the awesome grandeur of Rushmore, a monument so incredible it obscures the multifaceted nature of these old dudes, transmogrifying them from individuals with a capacity both for greatness and evil into pure American deities.”

Interestingly enough, Cooper says he’d oppose a statue of Obama, too. Obama ordered some morally questionable actions, including drone strikes and unconstitutional surveillance programs, Cooper wrote.

“What I am suspicious of are monuments produced by the state, which tend to flatten out nuances and turn flawed individuals into tools of propaganda that bolster a kind of religious patriotism,” he wrote.

In Chicago, Bishop James Dukes, pastor of Liberation Christian Center, wants a statue of George Washington removed in his community and a street named for Andrew Jackson to be changed.

Lincoln Under Attack

A bust of Abraham Lincoln on Chicago’s Southside was vandalized and burned on Wednesday, NBC 5 TV reported. The statue was erected in 1926.

“What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism,” Chicago Alderman Raymond Lopez wrote on Facebook.

Monument to Supreme Court Justice Removed

A crane lifted a monument to U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert B. Taney from a pedestal in front of the Old State House in Annapolis, Md., on Thursday, CBS Baltimore reported. Taney wrote the infamous Dred Scott decision in 1857 declaring that African-Americans were not US citizens.

Taney remained loyal to the Union during the Civil War and remained on the job until his death in 1865. A group cheered as the statue was removed.

Blasting Stone Mountain?

A gigantic carving of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson should be blasted off the side of Stone Mountain in Georgia, Hontas Farmer wrote at Science20.com.

“Sign this petition if you don’t want to be defined forever by the face of traitors arguably worse than Benedict Arnold, who fought for a version of slavery which was more dehumanizing than even that practiced by George Washington,” Farmer wrote. She was referring to a MoveOn.org petition.

“Those men were traitors at best,” Farmer complained. “They are in the same league as Benedict Arnold.”

Confederate Reenactors Attacked

A man attacked Civil War reenactors dressed as Confederate soldiers with pepper spray at a parade in Newton, N.C., WSCO TV reported. The reenactors were taking part in the 128th Annual Soldiers’ Reunion Parade.

Things might have been much worse. Karl Smith, the man who pepper-sprayed the reenactors, was carrying a revolver when police arrested him, WSCO reported.

Do you think the Confederate statues should be removed? Share your thoughts in the section below:

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.

Self Defense Laws in Australia.

Click here to view the original post.
Another Australian citizen is attacked and he has no way to defend himself from these thugs using machetes. It is against the law in Australia to carry anything specifically for use in self defence. We are not allowed to carry guns, knives, batons, pepper sprays, or tasers. Women are getting raped & murdered, men are being attacked and killed, but the Australian government will not do anything to help us protect ourselves, not on the streets, and not even in our own homes.

Cyber security, preventing attacks!
Highlander “Survival and Prep Techs

Cyber security, preventing attacksIn the program below we revisit the need for cyber security not only on your devices but in the real world. I discuss what measures we need to take in our everyday lives that we should and must put in place if we want to maintain security within our lives.

Cyber security, preventing attacksThere is so much to consider when it comes to security, every prepper preps for security in some way but most of us neglect the computer/device side of things. We will discuss what security measures you need to use on your pc such as antivirus, popup blockers, basic operating skills that will protect you from intruders that want to get your information and use it for nefarious purposes. I will discuss the absolute need for opsec (operational security) when you are online. What we want is to not share your details on social media, in emails, or in forms you fill out.

4-4-16 imagesThe biggest causes of identity theft and infections are caused because of poor security practices. I will give you a few tips on what to look for, what to do in case you think you are compromised and how to prevent it in the first place. With the looming threat of cyber terrorism just over the horizon our own technology can be used against us if we are not careful. Routine maintenance and common sense is what will protect you from attacks.

Hopefully I give some pointers and make your lives a bit easier and less worrisome over this, even though it is on a lot of our minds. We hear of china posing a larger threat when it comes to cyber-attacks. Don’t let your devices be used to attack another, this may sound crazy but I will explain during the show what this entails and what to do about it. So enjoy the show and as always questions are welcome!
