Mount Isa MP Robbie Katter says recent polling shows people are sick of the Government treating them criminals.

“The Government recently agreed to a number of changes to the National Firearms Agreement which are going to make it much harder for licenced shooters including farmers and recreational shooters, to continue to pursue their activities. The NFA changes were agreed to without evidence and without adequate consultation.”

Robbie Katter sees 64% of voters reject firearm changes by ALP proposed legislation

Independent polling commissioned by the Law Abiding Firearm Owners (LAFO) shows 64% of people think the State Government is not listening to them and more than one third of Labor voters in three Townsville based seats would register a protest vote against the Government if more firearm restrictions were introduced.

“KAP has always been a strong supporter of law abiding citizens being able to own firearms and enjoy shooting both recreationally and professionally. Labor’s latest endorsement of the changes to the National Firearms Agreement (NFA) shows this Government will continue to treat law abiding citizen’s like criminals. Instead of consulting with firearm owners and the industry, the Government has ploughed ahead with significant restrictions to appease their left leaning constituents in Brisbane,” Katter said.

If the Government enforces the NFA changes in Queensland it will reduce access to ammunition and double the cost of maintaining a firearms licence.

“I’m yet to see any evidence that these changes will increase public safety. The changes are completely irrational and all they do is punish people who haven’t broken the law,” Katter said.

The polling showed that 91% agree with farmers owning a shotgun for farm work, 89% support feral pest controllers being licenced to use guns and 86% are okay with sporting shooters using guns at gun clubs or in competition.

“The results of the polling are very clear. Guns are a big issue for people in North Queensland. The KAP will be voting against any legislation or regulation that the Government brings in to Parliament that tries to increase restrictions on licenced shooters. The Government has provided no evidence to support the changes and they’ve shown they’re willing to restrict the rights of those who abide by the law for the sake of winning votes,”

The polling was conducted in the seats of Mundingburra, Thuringowa and Townsville.

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. This tightening of gun laws all boils down to one thing…the State and Federal governments do not want us to own guns for the simple reason they are frightened of Aussies taking control when it comes to dealing with Mohammedans.

  3. you are all right in that regard but it also comes down to control when the general public is disarmed they are much easier to control and manipulate. So when the UN and their small arms treaty takes full affect and they order complete disarmament, they know where all the guns are and where to get them. And then there’s no resistance to the tyrannical dictatorship we are continuing to head towards . Unless we all as a nation stand up and put a stop to all this crap, all people have the right to defend their gift of life. There is no one anywhere on this planet that has, the right to dictate who can defend themselves and how they choose to do it . Wake up people before we reach the point of no return, George Orwell 1984 is coming to a state or territory near you soon. It’s time you all got off the couch and start doing something , make your voices heard got on to your local radio stations your local newspapers wake people out of their trans break the programming.
