KAP only parliamentarians jerking the Labor Party into gear about disarmament

Community safety is being compromised as political elites and ideologues continue their war on licensed firearm owners, Katter’s Australian Party Leader and Traeger MP Robbie Katter has told the Queensland Parliament.

Robbie Katter and his two other KAP members are the only state parliamentarians trying to stop UN disarmament being implemented by the ALP

Mr Katter said he and his fellow KAP colleague’s offices had received an unprecedented number of complaints and pleas for assistance from the public following changes made the definition of “Fit and Proper Person” in December.

The new criteria, spawn out of the Queensland Audit Office’s review into the regulation of firearms in the state, now places greater scrutiny on an applicant’s traffic history, health status and ability to successfully participate in bureaucratic processes.

This includes broad and ambiguous questioning that can result in a rejected license if an applicant makes a mistake or accidentally omits personal information.

Mr Katter said while the Weapon’s Licencing Branch was part of the Queensland Police Service, it was the Labor State Government who had to take responsibility for the system.

He said their political obsession with punishing those with a genuine need for a gun was risking community safety.

“I would challenge anyone to name a group that is more discriminated against than licensed firearm owners, and these laws are not doing anything,” he said.

MHR Bob Katter has been Australia’s most vocal gun advocate for decades. Bob says the LNP will take them even more quickly than the ALP attested by the lacklustre former Qld LNP leader Deb Frecklington, another solicitor, who lost the last election after she said she would further tighten gun laws

“After looking at the evidence, the only thing being achieved by all this effort from the Government is people like me and farmers are writing more letters regarding the constraints around us.

“We are not the problem; it is the illegal gun owners that the Government should be focusing on.”

Mr Katter said the decision-makers, including politicians and uniformed police from the Weapon’s Licencing Branch, were too far removed from the day-to-day reality of most licensed gun-users.

“These decisions are being made from an office from Brisbane but they have very real consequences for the people on the ground – there are people who need to use these things as tools,” he said.

“In most cases those deciding on applications do not even have a weapon’s licence, so outside of being a uniformed police officer they do not have any real-life experience with how this all operates in practice.

“The focus should always be on community safety, but this needs to be in terms of the evidence of where firearms are genuinely needed”.

The Traeger MP said the goal posts for weapon’s licence applicants were constantly being changed and were now essentially limitless.

“It used to be that five years was the limit where a person applying had to reveal anything on their record; now it is indefinite,” he said.

“A traffic offence from 20 years ago is now relevant and is counting against people.

“For those people who were getting their firearms licence, it is now either held up or they are just not getting it – all this thanks to a 20-year-old traffic offence that never counted before.

“It’s mischievous because the authorities already have all of that information, but they force people applying into admitting it.

“If they forget or make a mistake, they can be forced into a corner that results in the immediate rejection of their application through no genuine fault of their own.”

Mr Katter said while the current situation for licensed weapon-holders was dire, he’d had some preliminary and positive discussions with the State Government.

He said from these talks, there’d been an indication the Government was prepared to take action to restore some common sense to the system.

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. Does the “Fit & Proper” Law apply to politicians ?

  2. part of the problem is that very few lawyers, Judges and political activists understand our basic human rights as coming from our British heritage, as argued in the _*attached booklet*_, written circa 1989 by a brilliant barrister Terry Shulze (an American).

    Our rights do NOT come from a Parliament, or from the UN.

    If one Parliament can grant rights (e.g. the right to own a gun) then a subsequent Parliament can remove that right, as we see happening now in Queensland, presumptuously and in ignorance.

    BUT the “*right to bear arms*” was granted to every free citizen in the British Bill of Rights in 1688 _by the Monarch_, when the Brits executed King Charles 2 for his arrogance in arguing for the ‘divine right of Kings’, and asked Prince William and his wife Mary of the Dutch province of Orange to come in and be King and Queen, _*PROVIDED THAT *_they sign the “Bill of Rights”, which they did, and THAT document is STILL PART OF Australian law.

    Sadly, almost zero lawyers, Judges and political activists understand that.

    If Clive Palmer had understood that, he would not have lost his High Court case against the WA government (I tried to get the booklet to him many times, but failed)

    I hope that somebody can educate Robbie Katter et al about this booklet.

    We do not live in a democracy, we live in a Constitutional Monarchy, which allows democratic Parliaments to make laws SUBJECT TO “Royal Assent” – it should be the case that our Governor-Generals and State Governors, acting for the Queen, should refuse to assent to laws that contradict our ancient common law British heritage, as described in this booklet.

    That is how the system was intended to work by our ‘founding fathers’ in 1900 at Federation.

    regards, Lex
