Amendments to Tasmania’s gun laws go before a committee

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has written to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull asking for him to intervene before Tasmania’s re-elected Liberal Government frees up the State’s gun laws.

Two days before the Tasmania election, the Liberals dropped a grenade – that if they won government they would amend the tough and ineffective laws to allow farmers and sporting shooters access to semi-auto rifles and shotguns.

However the Liberal Government had been in secret discussions with farming groups and the shooting lobby for six weeks prior to the election.

The glaring elephant in the room, is the bona fides of the Port Arthur massacre. The people’s court after dissecting the overwhelming evidence  to the contrary has decided Martin Bryant did not shoot any person at the Broad Arrow Café – he was miles away at the time of the shooting. His mother and two other witnesses who knew Martin confirmed this fact with investigators yet none was called to give evidence to Tasmania Police.

Soon to be deposed Opposition Leader,Bill Shorten (Shortbrains) has asked PM Turnbull to intervene over sensible and much-needed changes to Tasmania’s gun laws, promised before the election on March 3.

The so-called National Firearms Agreement has no effect in law, it is only an agreement between the States because the Commonwealth cannot legislate firearms law for the States.

If any State wishes to amend their respective gun laws they can do so with impunity. When the Queensland National Party Government in 1997 said it would not enact the pre-packaged gun laws presented by the Federal Government, PM John Howard threatened to withhold Commonwealth money from the State.

The Nationals leader Rob (Bubbles) Borbidge buckled and pushed the new laws through Parliament.

Shorten, soon to be deposed by Anthony Albanese, is barking up the wrong tree, because the Tasmania Liberals can tell him to go to hell where he belongs.

Likewise Turnbull would be a fool to intervene, but in any case there is nothing he can do. Premier Will Hodgman needs all the support he can get. Cairns News urges Tasmanian readers to phone Will Hodgman and give him support over the proposed changes to the gun laws.

He should take notice because it was the gun lobby which got his government over the line.

Yesterday, after the usual pressure from the ABC, Mr Hodgman said the amendments would be put before a committee to examine the effects and if they would contravene the national agreement.

About Editor, cairnsnews

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.

  3. As a law abiding gun owner in this country I’m sick and tiered of this rubbish it’s about time the NFA crap went away and was scrapped for the piece of garbage useless legislation it’s always been since day one . We have spent nearly 2 billion dollars it’s costing the Australian tax payer around the country $75000/day and we have achieved 0. How about we as Australians adopt what really works and model are gun laws off true conservative views , our own version of the second amendment . It’s about time the people of this country get off the couch and get out there on the streets and demand real solid change, people contact your elected employee’s as I am doing on a regular basis and tell them where you stand on this issue. We need this whole useless garbage to go away and while your at it demand the colonial inquiry, into the port Arthur event to occur blow up their inbox call them daily send them letters weekly and lets get this thing exposed and fixed and get martin Bryant out of jail and the real scum bags who set this up locked up we need to make this right after 22 years it’s time for the real truth to came out we not only owe it to those people who have been affected , but more importantly for the future of democracy in this country. Democracy dies at night that statement is true and correct only if we the people stay asleep and let this injustice continue for any longer it must be exposed and shine the light on the cockroaches .

  5. Come on people wake up get off the couch and get involved we must actively push back against the liberal socialist agenda, of breading a nation of moronic sheep who don’t understand history of what has occurred in the past when tyrannical governments have disarmed their population. the whole agenda is about people control not keeping the public safe, systematically disarm the Australian people while brining in thousands of jihadist to over run our country and strip away our rights freedoms and liberty’s. We must all get involved and constantly call our elected employee’s and hold them accountable, we Australian’s need our own copy of the 2nd amendment on the books. The right to self defence is given to you at birth no beaurocrat has the right to dictate to you how if or when you can defend yourself or your home and family. We need self defence laws on the books not next week or next year now, when the government fears the people there is liberty when this does not exist you have oppression and dictatorship.


  6. Good one Freedomman we need more fighters like you.Ed
