ALP still trying to disarm Qld farmers

Bill Byrne Police Minister

Bolshevik Bill Byrne alias Bolshevik Buffalo Bill the former army officer turned Labor politician wants to disarm law abiding farmers who use revolvers. He should tell us more about the possums he used to shoot in the ceiling of his house in town with a .22 rifle. Why penalise farmers for your indiscretions Buffalo Bill? Why not tell us about the Browning 9mm semi-automatic pistol you carried while in the army? That was your profession just the same as farmers need to carry a sidearm because it is their profession. Keep your hatred of farmers to yourself!

PRODUCERS ARE NOT “LONE COWBOYS” SAYS KAP

Rural property owners and hand gun users have been labelled “lone cowboys,” by Police Minister Bill Byrne in Parliament today.

The statement was made when the Minister was questioned by Member for Mt Isa Rob Katter, as to why the licenses and renewals for Category H weapons are being consistently denied.

Disregarding the safety of property owners when travelling via bike or horse, the Minister stated he simply did not accept the idea that a pistol was a legitimate agricultural tool.

“The idea of the lone cowboy, with the pistol strapped to the hip as an effective weapon in an agricultural application simply doesn’t cut it with me,” the Minister said.

“The core argument that a concealable pistol, Glock or any equivalent type of weapon is going to be a preferable agricultural weapon, for application in the agricultural sector is not a viable argument to make,” he said.

Mr Katter said he was extremely concerned to hear the statements from the Minister responsible for gun regulation.

“The Minister clearly does not appreciate the reasons for pistol use or have any concern for landowners on isolated rural properties,” Mr Katter said.

“To simply deny licenses because of personal beliefs is shocking, and highly irresponsible,” he said.

Mr Katter said many graziers had expressed their concern about safety when travelling with a cumbersome rifle, and frequently used a pistol especially when dealing with feral animals at close range.

“It is not uncommon for producers working alone in remote areas to check stock water while in the vicinity of wild dogs, this is a very compromising position,” Mr Katter said.

“Pistols have long been a tool within Australia, the suggestion that pistol use in outback pastoral Australia is not a legitimate agricultural tool is outrageous.”

“These statements are unfair on lawful producers who rely on these tools in remote areas,” he said.

Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth said he has heard from many people were also bewildered that their licenses had not been renewed.

“I’ve received complaints from responsible firearm owners who have had their applications rejected,” Mr Knuth said.

“I struggle to see how a producer using a handgun in thick country on dying cattle and feral animals isn’t appropriate agricultural use,” he said.

KAP will continue to fight vehemently for the rights of firearm owners in rural and regional Queensland.

  1. Nutter lefties wouldnt know the ground from the sky. The last vestiges of gun rights, are something that should be dearly clinged onto.

  2. How About this leftie come and join reality firearms are a tool they have been used as a tool for decades buy our farmers and many other law abbidding citizens as well I think it’s been long overdue that people come together and demand to be treated like a free man and free men have the right as a person to defend themselves.

  3. Damn Them! Do not comply! Keep your guns! Disarmed men are slaves.
