Firearms industry calls on all ANZ Bank customers to cancel their accounts for stopping on-line firearms trading
Cairns News echoes the call by Shooting Industry Foundation of Australia and gun dealers Australia wide to cancel their ANZ accounts and to urge their customers, families and friends to do likewise.
While few people like the Big Four banks, this time around they have hit a raw nerve in regional areas where buying guns or ammo online is a necessity.
Roo shooters, farmers, rangers and sport shooters will be affected by having to make long trips to towns to purchase guns and accessories.
A joint venture between ANZ Australia and European payments provider Worldline has cancelled essential banking services for dealers.
Worldline’s CEO Petr Ryska said each merchant application was reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Although reaffirming that this week, a company spokesperson said that when it came to the sale of firearms, they “worked with merchants whose customers purchase weapons in-store, based on appropriate licence and permit checks, as is required by law”.
“Where consumers are looking to buy firearms online, we do not offer ecommerce, mail order or telephone order services for the sale of those items”, she said.
SIFA said that regardless of how a payment was made, every legal firearm transaction in Australia was registered, and must be done so via a licensed firearms dealer to a police-checked firearm license holder, who has the appropriate permits in place.
“By de-platforming our industry, ANZ has ignored Australia’s strong and robust firearms legislative regime that mandates how a firearm transaction takes place,” SIFA CEO James Walsh said.
He added that removing the ability for licensed dealers to accept certain payments by credit card made it harder for businesses to transact with their customers, meaning they would need to source other, often less secure, payment alternatives.
“Regardless of what ANZ purports, this decision is simply a social restraint of trade on a legal and highly regulated industry, as firearms dealers who bank with ANZ will now be unable to take payments from remote customers or have the ability to service any customers who do not live in the local area,” Mr Walsh said.
The NSW dealer said they’d been advised by their local branch to move their business to another banking service, as there was nothing they could do to influence decision-making.

Over the past fortnight Townsville’s population of 174,000 has seen 300 home break ins and 70 cars stolen in a crime orgy unequalled anywhere in Australia.
Townsville police have warned it is only a matter of time before gangs of marauding, mainly black youths kill a resident in a home invasion or a homeowner kills one of them.
In the latest incident, juveniles allegedly forced their way into a Townsville home just after midnight on Wednesday and attacked a 28-year-old man with a machete.
Police said he was taken to hospital in a stable condition with multiple wounds to his hand and back.
A blue four-wheel-drive was stolen during the incident.
The 4WD Ford Ranger was later sighted at 4am and police began a short pursuit before calling off the chase.
Chief Superintendent Craig Hanlon said since Thursday, 12 people had been arrested in Townsville on 57 charges ranging from unlawful use to burglary and stealing.
“Of those 12 people, nine are juveniles and all of those juveniles currently remain in custody,” he told the Townsville Bulletin on Wednesday.
“The use of knives and machetes has to stop.
“We’re one minor issue away from someone being seriously injured or killed.
“I want to know what those family and friends of those people are doing … this is disgusting behaviour and it’s got to stop.”
Approximately 40 police were deployed across the city overnight to deal with a range of incidents.
Residents of a home who are invaded, threatened or injured have every right at common law to defend themselves with whatever means are available.
Guns are not out of the question and should be used as a deterrent against these anti-social attackers before these often mentally retarded* invaders kill an innocent resident.
Last year black youths stole a car from a home in Townsville after pointing a rifle at the owner and taunting him as he moved towards the offender: “You want to be a hero mate….?”
If this homeowner had a firearm he could have defended himself but Labor’s gun policies have left people unprotected and at the mercy of marauding Aboriginal youths.
It will take just one blackfella to be shot, then their gutless mates will disappear into the night when they realise Labor’s policies rightly have been ignored. People when threatened or injured will arm themselves and defend their families and property. That is their inherent right.
After all the homeowner is the first responder. Calling the police as the evidence shows often is a waste of time because the understaffed and under-equipped stations cannot respond immediately even if a victim was fortunate enough to actually speak to an officer on the phone.
Dial 000 and get an operator from anywhere in Australia or Police Link which is a recorded phone service requiring an email address to record a crime.
Labor is trumpeting its recent changes to the Juvenile Justice laws which purportedly allow magistrates to refuse bail to serious repeat offenders, but Katters Australian Party leader Robbie Katter and LNP Opposition Police spokesman Dale Last say the changes are superficial and will not and have not made one bit of difference to re-offending.
Mr Katter said the evidence revealed the crime rate is increasing even though the Labor Party had instructed senior police to downplay the burgeoning crime data.
*Data regarding young Aboriginal and white offenders in 2019 showed most were suffering from malnutrition or had damaged brains from petrol sniffing, illicit drug and alcohol abuse.

The Federal Government will soon finalise the complete and ultimate facial recognition records for all Australian citizens.
And Pauline Hanson wants a national ID Card?
A national data base of passport, driver, gun owner and high risk equipment operator licence photos will be kept for access by just whom remains unknown.
Federal and State police, immigration officers and Border Force will have access, but it seems more clandestine bodies will get their hands on your complete identity.
ASIO, ASIS and reciprocal overseas spy agencies could also have access to all of your personal data.
It should be noted that Australia has arrangements with some rather dubious nations for exchanging the personal information of all our citizens.
CCTV footage as depicted in US television shows such as NCIS Los Angeles will end up in captured data as supposedly trained facial recognition experts scan your face while you browse the shopping mall, fuel your car at the service station or sit on a park bench.
Queensland Traffic Police and their contractors have had this technology for three years, photographing you in your car every time you pass a highway patrol vehicle or stationary camera car, storing your image and that of passengers, vehicle description, direction, time and date of travel.
The police cars have infa-red ability and can photograph the driver and all passengers in the car as you pass. By then your number plate will have been read by the on-board computer and sent online to the huge data bank in Roma Street Police HQ and another massive data bank held by the Main Roads Department.
Soon after the facial images of the car occupants will be sent to the national Face Identification Service.
Nearly 80 per cent of people over 16 hold a drivers licence and 55 per cent have a passport. More than 600,000 citizens have a photographic gun licence in Queensland.
Justice Minister Michael Keenan told News Corp that passport photos would be accessed in the coming months and drivers licences would be tapped into after ongoing discussions with the states were finalised.
The Face Identification Service will match a photo of an unknown person against multiple government records to help establish their identity.
“These biometric services will change the face of crime fighting in Australia,” Mr Keenan, a Liberal, said.
The final piece of the identity jigsaw is about to come into place. Tasmania MP Andrew Wilkie has warned Australia will become the police state, test case for the final solution.
Muslims take over Australian security companies. This allows them to be legally armed with concealable or long-arm firearms
from Leonard William
In the last 3 years there has been a massive “beyond normal” rise in Muslim security companies and security agents, inclusive of gun license permits.
This also includes Government contracts for security services, however, if one was to look from an extremist’s point of view, this puts many weapons in peoples hands, gains control over most club security whereby it can assist drug sales and recruitment of Muslim converts.
This problem was noted by a top level USA security agent who seems to be hushed up since raising this.
Muslim Brotherhood Has Penetrated All U.S. National Security Agencies Under Obama’s Guidance, High-Ranking Admiral Claims:
See too: Wikipedia of a duplication of what is occurring in Australia, whereby, Muslims have been given power to take over all general security company operations in which the media questioned as being dangerous.
This is at a time when the Australian Government has just allocated $18 million to place private security operators at schools to protect from terror threats, whereby it might be putting the greyhounds amongst the rabbits.
Last year 164 private security guards were struck off for committing acts they are employed to protect people from. However, the corrupt ones found a loophole in Queensland where now 80% of NSW security licenses were issued due to this loophole where these disqualified person’s criminal records are overlooked.
■ 48,159 class one and two security licenses active in NSW
■ 164 individual licenses revoked for criminal activity in 2014
■ 106 master licenses revoked last year for unknown reasons
■ 57 license applications refused for criminal activity in NSW last year
■ 2684 security licenses in NSW obtained interstate and 80 per cent of them from Queensland
Look at major security firm Wilson’s, just the main page staff profiles indicate who is operating it these days.
But here are the real tell-tale signs of danger to this industry, where it factually indicates Muslim control. Here is the Western Australia licensed agents listing in which this extract is an unedited sample in order starting at “A”.

Hardly any non-Muslim names are registered, and such sudden turn-around in under 3 years, so how and why did this fast domination start?
As were the concerns in the USA about this type of infiltration, moreso getting government contracts having sensitive material access at a time when ISIL has said it will infiltrate this way, then our Governments need to start asking themselves serious questions on the risks of this sudden domination. And voters must pressure them on the same.
The New Zealand and Australian Governments are in full crisis mode over the video games movie released onto the internet by intelligence agencies supposedly depicting a mass shooting in a mosque.
Any kid with half a brain would know immediately the rifles are air guns and the video which has terrified governments and their perpetrators is full of crisis actors who get shot by Tarrant’s air gun and naturally don’t bleed.
If Tarrant had a real weapon there would have been blood and guts all over him and spread across the floor and walls.
Firing a 5.56mm rifle with military grade ammo sends a 55 grain projectile at 3260 feet per second and has a muzzle energy 1294 lb-f. In other words if you get hit by the round at 10 to 40 feet distance you are dead and the impact leaves an awful entry wound easily seen at that range and a massive exit wound with blood and tissue everywhere.
Did any viewer see this occur in the video? Even the Port Arthur hoax was better than this, and that was in 1996.
Any person found transmitting or publishing this dodgy video can face up to 14 years in jail warns the NZ Government.
Take you pick on which one if either is Tarrant. In any case both are over age 40.
A photograph of the man charged in the Christchurch Magistrates Court taken in the court and without a blurred face shows a completely different person to the video still of the alleged shooter Brenton Tarrant sitting in a car.
The real identity of either man in these photographs is now in doubt. New Zealand Prime Minister and leader of the NZ Labour Party Jacinda Adern either is totally incompetent or has been involved in this shooting scam since the plot was hatched.
Who is the person in court and who is sitting in a car in the footage released at the time of the shootings?
Irrespective of the identity of the two different men in the photos, nothing alters the amateurish video mentioned above. A US reader sent this information and we leave it to readers to decide:
LMAO FFS! The face photoshopped onto Brenton’s body is actually SAM HYDE!! a famous guy for memes created about him. /pol/ 4chan likes to blame him for every shooting that happens its part of the meme. There is no False Flag.

The FBI announced ‘case closed’ this past Tuesday on the October 2017 Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 people dead and over 800 injured. They produced a 3-page report that did not identify a motive or establish any forensic connection between the alleged weapons and any of the victims. Indeed, there has been no forensic proof presented by either the Las Vegas police or the FBI that the alleged killer Stephen Paddock was, in fact the killer. (identical modus operandi to Port Arthur)
Noticeably missing from the report was any discussion of alleged killer Stephen Paddock’s chest wound or any evidence that the window in room 35-135 was broken before or during the attack.
Over 100 FBI agents were brought in from around the country to produce this 3-page report, that was even less detailed than the report produced by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, which wrapped up its own investigation last August. Special Agent Aaron Rouse in charge of the Las Vegas Division of the FBI made a televised statement laden with comforting neurolinguistic programming phrases intended to reassure listeners but peppered with strange slips.
YouTuber John E. Hoover, whose channel has been dedicated solely to this historic case takes Rouse to task for the many questions that remain unanswered, such as the three helicopters seen on FlightRadar24 flying overhead of the attacks, not accounted for and not belonging to either the LVMPD or the two known services that fly out of the nearby airport. Hoover asks whether the time has come for a Congressional inquiry.

Has Australia and Foreign Minister Julie Bishop also agreed to sign us up?
Posted on July 8, 2018
While the United States is typically set apart from other countries when it comes to gun laws, a recent conference with the United Nations has raised major red flags, as the U.S. agreed to enact “full implementation” of an international agreement on gun control that will violate Americans’ constitutional rights by adding their personal information to a global database.
The Third Review Conference (RevCon) of the United Nations’ Program of Action (PoA) on Small Arms and Light Weapons was held in New York last week with a 2018 agreement, which states that its purpose is to serve as “a renewed commitment to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects.”
“We, the States participating in the third United Nations Conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Program of Action to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons in all its aspects, convened at United Nations Headquarters in New York from 18 to 29 June 2018 to review progress made in implementation and identify priorities for strengthened implementation, reaffirm our commitment to the full and effective implementation of all of the provisions of the Program of Action and the International Tracing Instrument, with a view to ending the human suffering caused by the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons.”
The agreement states that it will act as an “international instrument to enable states to identify and trace, in a timely and reliable manner,” light arms and small weapons, while “bearing in mind the different situations, capacities, and priorities of States and regions.” All the while, it will be tracking “progress made in the implementation of the International Tracing Instrument; note the challenges to the implementation of the Instrument, whether continuing, recent or emerging.”
The conflict and post-conflict situations addressed by the agreement include the need for “disarmament, demobilization and reintegration programs and community violence reduction programs,” along with international instruments, such as, “regular inventories, surplus disposal, including through destruction, and the implementation of appropriate measures when losses are detected.”
The agreement also listed management and security measures that would include “marking, record-keeping and, as appropriate, tracing by law enforcement authorities, for illicit small arms and light weapons that are found, seized, or recovered in conflict and post-conflict situations.”
In order to implement the agreement on a national level, the Program of Action lists a series of requirements for each government to follow:
- To establish or strengthen national laws, regulations and administrative procedures in support of the full and effective implementation of the Program of Action.
- To strengthen coordinated national approaches for the implementation of the Program of Action, including, as appropriate, the establishment or designation of national coordination agencies or bodies involving relevant government agencies, including those responsible for law enforcement, border control and export and import licensing.
- To promote the full participation and representation of women in mechanisms relating to the implementation of the Program of Actionand to encourage strong cooperation with civil society, parliamentarians, industry and the private sector.
- To establish or designate a national point of contact to act as a liaison between States on matters relating to the implementation of the Program of Action, and to share and update this information regularly, and to provide the point of contact with the necessary means to carry out its role.
- To encourage the development and implementation of national action plans or other national policies in support of the implementation of the Program of Action by making better use of existing information to improve the measurement of progress and to coordinate the development and implementation of such plans or policies, as appropriate, in collaboration with relevant stakeholders, including those from civil society and industry, with those relevant to target 16.4 of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and to the relevant United Nations resolution on women, disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.
- To significantly reduce the illicit flows of small arms and light weapons, as appropriate, through illicit weapons recovery and voluntary surrender programs.
Americans who are reading the agreement may be thinking that in order to fully implement it in the United States, it would require a full repeal of the Second Amendment—but this Program of Action appears to be the overreaching plan that has already been proposed, in part, in individual laws introduced on national and local levels in the U.S.
Media coverage and calls for stricter gun control on the local level are having a real effect as multiple cities pass bans on “assault rifles.” Residents in Deerfield, Illinois, were forced to turn in all guns that qualify as assault weapons last month, or face fines of $1,000 a day if they did not comply.
The city council in Boulder, Colorado, has followed suit by unanimously passing a ban on the sale and possession of assault weapons, high-capacity magazines and bump stocks, giving residents until July 15 to comply. Massachusetts and New Jersey have also passed statewide bans on bump stocks, and police were shocked to find that only a few people complied by turning in the newly illegal accessories.
On the national level, when gun control legislation was introduced in Congress last year, it came in the form of the Fix NICS Act, which was later rebranded as the STOP School Violence Act and signed into law in March after it was quietly included in the 2018 Omnibus Appropriations bill. The legislation amends the agencies that have control over the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which determines whether Americans are allowed to own guns.
As The Free Thought Project has reported, the changes to the NICS system—which received support from Democrats, Republicans, and even the NRA—put pressure on federal agencies and states to report as many names as possible, “making it only a matter of time before this list becomes so large that nearly any activity could serve to remove your Second Amendment rights.”
The NICS database will now continue to grow in the U.S. with government agencies receiving incentives for their contributions, and the United States’ involvement with the United Nations gives it the perfect setup to turn over all of its information on American citizens in the NICS database, in order to fully cooperate with the UN’s Program of Action.
As always, when rights are stripped away and civil liberties are ignored, it is done in the name of “safety and security,” even though, as history has shown, the opposite is true.
June outdoor extravaganza
HuntFest returns to Narooma this year bigger and better with 35 stalls inside along with another 38 stalls outside and numerous outside stalls covering outdoor gear, kayaks, 4WD and boating along with the exhibits that include hunting and equipment, four wheel drives, camping, clothing, bikes and quadbikes, bow hunting, field cooking equipment, meat processing and preserving equipment combined with a photographic and DVD competition.

LVMPD officer inside Paddock’s room: ‘We do not have a broken window’ –Apparently, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and FBI have some explaining to do after officers who breached the gunman’s room find no evidence of broken windows. | 02 May 2018 | Officer-worn body camera footage from the night of the 1 October massacre reveals no broken windows or curtains blowing in the wind inside Stephen Paddock’s 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay room, contradicting the official narrative. “We do not have a broken window,” one of the officers named Cory clearly states after making entry into room 32-135. “Standby, we’ve got curtains open on a window that’s not broken,” another voice can be heard saying in the video as officers frantically pull back the curtains. “It’s not, it’s not, it’s not [broken] — Corey it’s not,” one officer makes clear.

Second Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Dead After Questioning Parkland Shooting Official Narrative | 29 April 2018 | Marshall Peterson, a Broward County Deputy Sheriff who dared to question the official narrative surrounding the Parkland shooting, has been found dead under suspicious circumstances. He was 53. A 28-year veteran of the Broward Sheriff’s office, Deputy Peterson is the second Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy to be found dead in sudden and unexpected circumstances in the month following the Parkland massacre. Deputy Jason Fitzsimon, 42, was found dead on his sofa on April 1. Deputy Peterson is the second Broward County deputy to be found dead within a month. They were both in the prime of their lives and they died from unspecified, non-job related causes. Unless you count “questioning the official narrative surrounding a highly publicized school shooting” to be a job related cause of death… On April 1, Jason Fitzsimon was found dead on his sofa. According to police, the 42-year-old had been in excellent health prior to his untimely death.
You wouldn’t know it from all the hysteria surrounding President Trump’s suggestion that states should allow some teachers to carry concealed weapons in school, but some schools in America already allow teachers to carry.
Case in point: One school district in Texas has been arming teachers for years. The school even has signs outside warning any potential shooters that the school is NOT a gun-free zone and any potential shooters will be met with force there.
According to local parents interviewed by John Stossel, they love the policy and feel safer knowing that their children are protected by well-trained, armed teachers. The Texas school district purchases the sidearms for its teachers and provides first-rate training on how to use them. Everyone loves the program — except for potential school shooters.
Texas has about 200 schools where teachers are allowed to carry a concealed weapon. Compare that with New York, where the taxpayers spend hundreds of millions of dollars to surround schools with bored police officers. Talk about being a burden on society!
Even if a school shooting were to take place, we know after the Parkland, Florida massacre that police are likely to wait around outside as a shooting takes place. A police presence is no guarantee of safety, whereas an armed teacher is likely to defend herself and her students against an active shooter!
Check out John Stossel’s report on the use of concealed weapons in Texas schools, because it is truly an eye-opener. You won’t believe the many lies, distortions and myths that the media is perpetrating about President Trump on this issue.
