Gun amnesty a fizzer

National Firearms Amnesty a waste of resources

The results of the amnesty were nothing out of the box with not many semi-auto and automatic firearms handed in.

Of the overall 57,324 recorded, one third were destroyed and the balance was registered in various states and returned to the owners.

As we have stated many times in the past it is a fallacy to claim registered guns help solve crime. They don’t and there are no authentic studies or figures to say this helps to track gun crime.

There are probably over 1.5 million .22 calibre rifles registered across the nation and another 200,000 that are not registered. How does this make the unregistered guns illegal?

This handed-in rocket launcher is no more dangerous than the thousands of light artillery pieces and inert rifles or tanks found at any Australian RSL club.

Thousands of unregistered motor vehicles sit in yards and paddocks across Australia. Does that make them illegal?

People have been conditioned into thinking because a firearm sits in a cupboard for years waiting for a need on a rainy day then these guns are illegal?

Wakey wakey they are no more illegal than the cars even if we had legitimate government.

Nearly 2900 handguns were handed in plus a nice little rocket launcher, recovered from a dump, no doubt having its origins with army ordinance. It found its way to the crusher.

Only 2500  semi-automatic firearms were handed in.

New South Wales received the highest number of firearms at 24,831, followed by Queensland on 16,375. Victorians handed in 9,175 guns.

Federal Minister for Law Enforcement Angus Taylor said the weapons were no longer on the “grey market”, which refers to guns that are not registered and not in the hands of criminals.

This Minister has no idea what he is talking about. He thinks criminals might get their hands on these guns. There would be none to hand in if this were the case.

You only made more criminals out of law abiding citizens who foolishly handed them in Mr Taylor.

What enterprising bank robber would use this 170 year old Tower Enfield flintlock pistol?

When these gun owners became ‘licenced’ all of their personal details were entered into the federal Crim Trac records along with tens of thousands of real criminals who, incidentally, have not handed in their guns.

So-called government is criminally stupid.

Senator David Leyonhjelm, an avid shooter and gun advocate, does not think it has achieved much at all.

“We know it makes no difference to anything that really matters,” Senator Leyonhjelm said.


“The Government says its taking guns off the street. The guns that it gets in an amnesty were never on the street. They’re grandpa’s old guns. They were in the back of a cupboard or wardrobe in a ceiling somewhere. They were never going to be used in a crime.”

These ancient guns were handed in. It is impossible to source ammo for any of these antique guns.

  • Norinco SKK semi-automatic rifle (the remaining 900,000 are buried)
  • A WWII Russian PPSH submachine gun
  • Martini Henry rifle circa 1873
  • Spandau MG08 heavy machine gun(should be given to a RSL club)
  • Beaumont Adams Revolver circa 1856
  • A homemade machine gun



About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understand 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 this year.

  1. So happy this is a FIZZER …this was a
    LAME DUCK… ENTERPRISE ….by WHO ????.( we know who )

  2. I wonder How Many Criminals handed in their Armaments , They don’t mention anything about that do they, Only the Honest people getting Castigated once again by Fools in High Places.

  3. The idea that registration provides safety (or even government control) is a ridiculous fallacy. In reality, it provides public assistance to criminal activity.
    Government registration databases are a high-value resource for organized crime. All it takes is a single successful security breach (from a government whose IT credentials include the e-health bungle and public healthcare payroll fiasco). Once exfiltrated, registration data could inform criminal activities such as unlawfully acquiring registered items (eg firearms, livestock etc), and worse.
