COAG has no lawful authority over the states or the Commonwealth of Australia to ban a firearm

Where are the Liberals ?

KAP state crossbenchers Rob Katter and Shane Knuth have slammed the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) resolution to tighten restrictions on lever-action shotguns.

COAG today agreed to reclassify lever action shotguns with capacity of greater than five rounds into category D, and lever action guns with a capacity of less than five rounds into category B.

Both were previously available to gun owners with a category A licence.

“The Queensland government’s support to move the five shot to category B and the seven shot to category D is a knee-jerk reaction,” Member for Mount Isa Rob Katter said.

“We, like many legal firearm owners are entirely disappointed at the emotional stance the government has taken on this issue.

“Lever-action shotguns are widely used, and any reclassification may trigger a taxpayer funded buy-back, which is simply not in the interest of Queenslanders,” he said.

Mr Katter, who yesterday warned that any legislation would have trouble gaining passage through parliament, has repeated the KAP’s stance against the move.

“The premier should expect a hostile parliament when trying to enforce any amendments to the National Firearms Agreement through the house,” he said. “It is now up to the LNP and other crossbenchers to show resolve and support the KAP’s position to stop the arbitrary reclassification of lever-action shotguns.”

Rob Katter and Shane Knuth have warned the State (fascist) Government to leave the Adler fiasco alone

State KAP crossbenchers Rob Katter and Shane Knuth [pictured] have warned premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to expect a hostile parliament when trying to enforce any amendments to the National Firearms Agreement through the parliament next year.

Mr Katter, who yesterday warned that any legislation would have trouble gaining passage through parliament, has repeated the KAP’s stance against the move.

“The premier should expect a hostile parliament when trying to enforce any amendments to the National Firearms Agreement through the house,” he said. “It is now up to the LNP and other crossbenchers to show resolve and support the KAP’s position to stop the arbitrary reclassification of lever-action shotguns.”

The Adler shotgun was at the centre of debate on weapons reclassification at COAG today.

In early November, an opposition disallowance motion regarding firearm dealership regulations was successfully passed through parliament with the support of Mr Katter and Mr Knuth, bringing about a defeat of a proposed government change.

Member for Dalrymple Shane Knuth said law-abiding firearm owners already have strong control measures in place.

“We need to be worrying about illegal importation of firearms, not restricting existing classifications further,” Mr Knuth said. “I have no doubt this will become a controversial issue when it enters state parliament.”

Earlier this week, in an opinion piece published by the Queensland Country Life, the president of the Firearms Dealers Association of Queensland, Rob Nioa, together with Graham Park, president of Shooters Union Queensland, warned that “a vote to ban and confiscate legal firearms from licensed farmers and sporting shooters would almost certainly spell the end of her (Premier Palaszczuk’s) minority government and cement control of the next state parliament to One Nation and the Katter Australia Party (KAP)”.

Mr Nioa, Australia’s biggest gun dealer and Rob Katter’s brother-in-law, has imported over 22,000 Adler shotguns into Australia.

The Adler lever action shotgun, a rather safe firearm

Lever action firearms have been in use since the 1870’s and as far as Cairns News is aware have never been used in any massacre or have been the subject of any ban by governments. If any readers have ever experienced a firearm being used without a human pointing it, please let us know.

  1. Im not a gun supporter, but this is going too far.

  2. Can’t have law abiding citizens having any way to defend themselves or be self sufficient.

  3. It is quite evident the australian government is in cahoots with this wicked mooslam movement to destroy freedom and individualism around the world. Australia shall become as France and Germany and Netherlands with mongrels roaming the streets and murdering, raping, demanding all that pertains to islam and to destroy all else. Wake up people from down under.

  4. That’s it we Australians have had enough of this kabal that they call the Australian government were done we have had enough and will not take anymore. We want our rights and or freedoms back we want the right to self defense especially in our own home, we are done with this pack of lying cheating technocrats who think they have the right to decide for us. What is real and what is not as far as I’m concerned I’m from now on a one issue voter I’m for gun rights to all Australians , so they can defend themselves in their own homes from the scum out there and if these elitist politicians don’t start delivering they will soon find themselves unemployed and out on the street and we will replace them with the right people that will deliver the will and wants of the people. Start waking up all you politicians as change is coming to this country very soon , and if you don’t get on the liberty train you will get dumped to the side like you deserve. This has gone far enough this far and no further the line in the sand has been reached and we have crossed over it NO FURTHER!!!!!!!!. People wake up to Agenda 2030 you are being enslaved and captured you , must stand and push back against this because if you dont you will find yourself alone and with no where to go but a FEMA camp WAKE UP.
