Queensland farmers want to stick to their guns but the Labor infested public service has refused several hundred handgun licence renewals over the past 18 months causing many cases of animal cruelty.
Farmers need handguns, which have been a part of their tools-of-trade since the first sheep and cattle were offloaded at Botany Bay in 1788.
But the socialist Queensland Labor Party is denying them a licence to carry one even if a farmer has been licenced for 20 or more years without incident or a change in circumstances.
Should a farmer find a cow with a dead calf stuck in its uterus while giving birth and the cow is on its last gasp after the crows have pecked out its eyes and those of the calf, he has no option but to kill the cow. How? He is 20 klms from the house and the nearest rifle because he is on a horse or motorbike.
He could cut the cow’s throat with a pocket knife, that is if he is still allowed to carry one.
The LNP Opposition in 2011 helped outlaw pocket knives by voting with the ALP to ban them. Agforce was dead quiet about this one.
Once a farmer would take his revolver out of its holster and shoot the cow, being the most humane thing to do while appeasing the brain-dead Animals Australia and the RSPCA both of which refuse to provide midwives for Brahman cows.
There are a number of alternatives for hard-pressed farmers such as buying one of many anecdotal ‘hot’ handguns available on the black market or to inadvertently misplace the licenced pistol, which happens on occasion.
Katters Australia Party State leader Robbie Katter says he will step up the pressure on the Labor Party when Parliament resumes to force the ALP Marxists to instruct the Weapons Branch to renew all licences for farmers.Police Minister Comrade Ryan like his predecessor Captain Bill Byrne has a generational hatred of farmers as this new parliament will reveal.
There is palpable union and Labor animosity towards those on the land producing clean and green food for Queenslanders, which unfortunately includes the Labor Party. Agriculture will be in for a torrid time unless the KAP cross-bench can hold them at bay.
The ALP is skating on climate-changing, thin ice even though it has a two seat majority, thanks to an abundance of vote fraud and the ethnic welfare vote. Before the new parliament sits, the Member for Mulgrave and former Treasurer Curtis Pitt is about to be hauled before the powerful Ethics Committee after the LNP alleged he misled the last parliament by pushing through a sweetheart deal for the Tram and Bus Union. Pitt’s fate is up in the air.
Another alternative is for farmers to launch a Federal Court class action to lay bare the unlawful Australia Act 1986 and the alterations to the Queensland Constitution in 2001 by the political miscreant, Peter Beattie without a referendum.
Has anyone noticed since 2001 how Beattie, Bligh, Newman and Palaszczuk refer to “my government’. Does anyone remember giving the ‘government’ to an individual?
Beattie removed the Queen and installed the Premier as the new head of State for the corporate, Socialist Republic of Queensland.The legal mechanism used by the malcontent Beattie can be found in the record of proceedings in the Cairns Magistrates Court: Queensland Police –v- Walter, 2016, QP1700886562 QPS.
If farmers could actually band together for the common good just for once, the Federal Court would have little alternative but to find there is no criminal law in Queensland applying to those citizens outside of the political parties, just the common law which exists across the nation.
Orora Monroe tells her story about hearing gunshots at the casino in Planet Hollywood where she was visiting from Michigan. She says she made this video in the interest of offering data to help the people discover of who was behind the attacks in Las Vegas and the purpose of the attacks.
Besides Mandalay Bay and Harvest 91, there are eyewitness reports of gunshots fired on the night of October 1st and/or casualties seen at several other venues on the Las Vegas Strip including Hooters, Tropicana, New York New York, Bellagio, Caesar’s Palace and the Aria.
Monroe says, “The information at this point I believe is out here for everyone and for people to know that we are being lied to and people to know that the mainstream media is assisting in that lying for whatever reason and above all, that there are people in our country who are willing to do things for their own selfish reasons and they do not care who they hurt in the process.
“I think that’s the main thing that all of us should know and realize by now. I’m sure that most of us already know this…but the scale of the damage is getting larger, okay and and more detrimental…
“Others are choosing to do certain things in this country and regular people don’t matter at all…I mean, I believe that people were killed that evening. I know people were hurt but whomever did this and whomever is assisting after the fact in covering up who did this doesn’t care…one bit about the average person.”
October, 2017 – The LNP tonight backed Jackie Trad’s stricter Queensland gun control laws, with both parties displaying their willingness to work together to successfully attack the rights of law-abiding firearm owners.
The major party duopoly voted down a KAP Disallowance motion, ensuring more irrational changes will be made to the National Firearms Agreement (NFA).
KAP members Robbie Katter and Shane Knuth commended LNP Member for Gympie, Tony Perrett for crossing the floor to vote for KAP’s disallowance motion and for putting his constituents before his party.
After a debate characterised by mudslinging and misdirection the LNP sided with the Government to vote down the KAP motion moved by Robbie Katter resulting in Queensland now having gun laws which go far beyond those put in place by John Howard.
When debating the motion, Robbie urged all members of the house to look past the fear and emotion of the issue to ensure our laws are based on evidence and fairness.
“The changes to the NFA have absolutely no empirical or practical justification.
“Unfortunately these laws only punish people who do the right thing while doing nothing to address community safety,’’ Robbie said.
Member of Dalrymple Shane Knuth said if the State Government was serious about community safety it would look at measures which crackdown on gun crime, including a permanent amnesty, real time licence verification and better mail and customs screening to stop illegal weapons entering the country.
“The aim of the KAP disallowance motion was to remove the additional regulations imposed by Labor, resulting in tougher gun control laws,’’ Mr Knuth said.
“The LNP had the chance to block these tougher gun controls but chose to support Labor, even though they had been telling constituents they would champion law-abiding gun owners.’’
The LNP attempted to shift the blame to the State Government and the KAP for their decision to support the irrational NFA changes, however it was clear to all observers this was a weak attempt to move the focus away from their attack on law-abiding gun owners and the division within their own party.
“We will always support measures that make the community safer however, good policy needs to be based on evidence and not emotion,’’ Mr Knuth said.
Leader of the Opposition, Tim Nicholls quoted support for John Howard’s gun laws as the rationale. However, the new regulations significantly strengthen John Howard’s laws and they have been made without sufficient consultation with shooters.
The major aspects of the regulations which strengthen John Howard’s laws include:
– A reclassification of lever action shotguns to Category D, which is the same category as AK-47s and AR-15s, while pump action shotguns with the same capacity are classified in Category C.
– Serious questions around changes to the definition of lawful modification which could have the effect of making any type of weapon that has been modified by a licence shooter illegal. This has potential to make hundreds of thousands weapons illegal.
– If weapons are now deemed illegal they need to be handed back. With no compensation scheme in place this is perhaps the biggest injustice in the new laws.
Robbie Katter talks about a number of changes that could be brought in to improve community safety.
“There are a number of things that could be done to improve community safety including a permanent amnesty, a real time licence verification system, better screening of packages coming in from overseas and redirecting resources from persecution of law abiding shooters to fighting gun crime.
“According to a report by the auditor general, Customs only screens 25% of consignments, whereas previously all international mail coming into Australia was scanned. That equates to just 46 million scans, resulting in 67,123 prohibited items being seized. On those calculations, a further 201,369 prohibited items were let into the country,” Robbie said.
Kymberley Suchomel died suddenly after giving statement exposing multiple gunmen
Kymberley Suchomel was a key witness who had identified multiple shooters during Las Vegas attack A key witness in the Las Vegas shooting attack, who identified multiple shooters, has been found dead at her home.28-year-old Kymberley
Suchomel managed to escape the massacre, at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas, uninjured but made a public statement describing the attacks and how they were carried out by multiple gunmen that were firing weapons into the crowd.Her post on Facebook quickly went viral as it confirmed what many had already suspected:
The mainstream media “official” narrative that Stephen Paddock was a “lone wolf” gunman was false.Kymberley gave a detailed account of her horrific experience a few days after the event as she said she had struggled to think of the words to describe the “nightmare” she had been through.She said multiple gunmen were not only firing weapons in the crowd but chasing people and gunning them down.
She described how she was “chased” by one of the shooters: “We were rounding some sort of corner maybe- and I looked to the right and I saw this large cowboy sitting down with his legs spread, holding a blood-soaked woman. “I thought to myself ‘we NEED to hide’, but as I looked quickly for somewhere to go, the gunfire once again got closer and closer. “We couldn’t hide because they (and I do mean THEY) were chasing us.
“”I kept looking back expecting to see the gunmen- and I say MEN because there was more than one person. “There was more than one gun firing. 100% more than one.”She also stated that what was being reported by the mainstream news networks didn’t match the events that actually took place, saying: “I have bene [been] watching the news non-stop since I arrived back home to my family.
And it just doesn’t make sense.”The story that are feeding everyone doesn’t add up to our eyewitness accounts. There is something wrong with what they are saying & the evidence seems fake if you ask me.”There are multiple people stating that there was a lady towards the beginning of the evening who had made her way up to the stage warning people that we were all gunna die- her and her boyfriend were escorted off the premises.”Why has she not been mentioned by authorities? Every single survivor I have talked to also remembers multiple shooters, and at least one from the ground- why aren’t we being taken more seriously? Tons of things don’t add up.”
According to Sea Coast Online, Suchomel, 28, who was not injured during last week’s shooting, died early Monday at her Apple Valley home, according to her grandmother, Julie Norton.Norton found Suchomel just after 8:30 a.m. when she arrived to care for her 3-year-old great-granddaughter, Scarlett. She believes Suchomel may have died in her sleep after her husband, Mike, left for work at 4:30 a.m.Norton told the Daily Press: “I believe the stress from the shooting took her life.”Days after the shooting, Suchomel explained to the Victorville Daily Press how she and her friends escaped with their lives as a gunman, perched from a hotel suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, opened fire on some 20,000 concertgoers on Oct. 1.With 58 people killed by the gunman and nearly 500 wounded, the Las Vegas event is the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

That was the night that my life, and the lives of my friends, and so many others were changed forever,” Suchomel told the Daily Press the day after the shooting. “I might have escaped unharmed, but I know that I’ve been emotionally and mentally scarred for life.
“Suchomel shared her fear of trying to fall asleep at night as the “sounds of gunfire” become louder in her head and the images of “broken and bloody bodies” flashed through her mind.Major Cover-upKymberley Suchomel isn’t the first key witness to have died since the shooting attack after a man killed himself and his disabled daughter in a horrific murder-suicide shortly after the FBI raided his home.

Chad Nishimura mysteriously vanished shortly after he gave a statement to a local news network saying that Paddock was just a “normal guy” and that “he didn’t have many bags.
“Also, it was revealed today that the Mandalay Bay hotel security guard who was hailed a hero by the law enforcement and the mainstream media, Jesus Campos, has gone missing. READ MORE: Las Vegas Shooting Security Guard Jesus Campos Has Gone MissingCampos was due to appear on Fox News with Sean Hannity last night, which was 1 of 5 TV interviews he was scheduled for, but he didn’t show.This discovery emerged shortly after it was revealed that Campos was shot before the shooting massacre has started, and not after as the “official” narrative had claimed.
Has Martin Bryant escaped from Risdon Prison to train a 64 year old retired accountant in firearms handling?
Cairns News has been examining the internet fallout since the Las Vegas ‘shootings’ that were thrust upon us by a tightly controlled major media campaign that has amounted to nothing more than brainwashing and anti-gun propaganda.
These are some of the stand-out anomalies we have discovered in the bogus news reports and police interviews.
- There were at least two shooters
- Two nearby hotel lobbies were shot up but not reported
- The alleged shooter had no motive
- In a similar style to Australia’s Port Arthur drill, firearms were inserted into the crime scene after the event
- At least 1500 to 2000 rounds would have to be fired at the distance of 400 yards for the high kill and wounded rate
- There were approximately 20 empty shells seen in photographs or television footage. Where are the remaining 1500?
- The rate of fire was examined at length by acoustics and military experts who insist a belt fed machine gun was used. A modern belt fed machine gun is almost impossible to acquire by any means even in the US
- Automatic firearms with a large rate of fire often jam, produce large volumes of gas and nitro-cellulose powder smoke, are extremely noisy in confined spaces and take a lot of effort to fire continuously, particularly for an unfit 64 year old. Did he wear earmuffs or plugs?
- The thousands of feet of posted mobile phone footage taken at the concert before and after the shooting started, clearly show there was no acute panic, no projectiles were seen to be hitting the ground, almost no ricochets were heard in the audio recordings
- Intercepted police radio recordings reveal the shooting was an exercise
- Right on cue Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull on the day of the alleged shooting, called for harsher gun laws, the establishment of a national facial recognition data bank using drivers licence photographs and other tough citizen surveillance measures, one being to hold terrorism suspects in jail for two weeks without charges
Bob Katter took part in a recent western shoot at the Mareeba SSAA range. He joked that this might be the best way to bring the banks into line. Bob says KAP is the only party in Queensland that wants to do away with firearms registration which has been a long-held policy. Bob spent some time shooting at the range with pistol, rifle and shotgun. His pistol ability did not go unnoticed by the club. They want him to come back for a day’s competition. The veteran politician warns that if the Labor Party gets re-elected in Queensland with a majority, the state’s 600,000 shooters will be faced with restrictions on ammunition sales and even tighter restrictions on gun ownership. He says the ALP and LNP simply hate guns.
There is nothing ‘illegal’ about these rather mundane rifles.
Monday 5.30pm 31 July 2017 no later than 5 pm is the closing of submissions to gun law changes projected to be introduced by September. This is nothing but smoke screen to cover the endemic daily shooting with illegal guns on the streets of NSW that authorities cannot control and will only affect law abiding shooters.
THE REGULATORY IMPACT STATEMENT PROCESS
The Subordinate Legislation Act 1989 provides that regulations are to be automatically repealed five years after commencement. The repeal of the Firearms Regulation 2006 (FR) has been previously postponed and is now due to be repealed on 1 September 2017 unless remade. The Weapons Prohibition Regulation 2009 (WPR) is being remade at the same time on the basis that it closely mirrors the provisions in the FR.
The issues canvassed in this RIS do not represent the final Government position on the amendments, but provide an opportunity for discussion with firearms stakeholders, law enforcement agencies and the general community.
Comments should be directed to the RIS or the terms of the current Regulations.
The Government will use your submissions and feedback to develop a FR and WPR to meet the requirements of the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989.
To consider the public accept that “NSW Commissioner of Police” will have time to review moderation of the suggested changes left to a public servant with a rubber stamp who may have a personal agenda to maintain. This suggested change (below) is farcical draft regulation hinging on one person’s satisfaction;
13 (3) The Commissioner may refuse to issue a permit authorising the possession or use of a firearm if the Commissioner is satisfied that the applicant intends to possess or use the firearm for personal protection or the protection of any other person or for the protection of property.
Take this opportunity to suggest amendments, refute amendments by reading the draft regulation document like the one mentioned above.
More agenda driven changes:
Forcing all hunters and private landowners to supply private personal details to New South Wales Police before being allowed to hunt on private land (clause 32, 34 Draft Firearms Regulations 2017).
Refusing a firearms license or permit even if someone is innocent of an offence under the Firearms Act (clause 11, 23 Draft Firearms Regulations 2017).
Squeezing law-abiding firearms dealers out of business through further regulation and restriction (clause 41 Draft Firearms Regulations 2017).
If enough submissions are made to this disarmament driven draft, we the law abiding people are being hit rather than targeting the unlicensed shooters and guns used in daily shootings by totally out of control ethnic crime gangs with law enforcement having no impact on the street battlegrounds of NSW.
Make your submission before 5pm next Monday 31 July as we see mirroring Adolf Hitlers agenda that disarmed Germany to remove any threat from the people to this Nazi party dictatorship, not forgetting United Nations policies with which our governments have aligned that require confiscation of all firearms.

Goodyear Tyres sack employee over irrational fear of guns
Typical police overreaction
A simple miscommunication cost David Waters, an award winning sporting shooter, his livelihood.
All because of an irrational fear of firearms in Australia.
David Waters worked for tyremaker Goodyear in Parramatta, New South Wales. Whilst working, he was contacted by a friend looking for advice about an accessory for a rifle. Unable to meet the friend that weekend, David Waters organised to meet his friend in the Goodyear parking lot during David’s lunch break. David assumed that the individual would bring only the rifle accessory to the meeting. However, in a simple case of miscommunication, she brought both the accessory and the rifle.
The parking lot was visible to the public, and police were alerted to the presence of the rifle. Sixteen police officers arrived at the scene.
David Waters did not break any laws and did not harm anyone. The only person adversely affected was David Waters. Waters was fired for jeopardizing the safety and security of his fellow employees and Goodyear assets.
This is a perfect example of how Australia’s fear of all things firearm related can lead to a man losing his livelihood over a simple miscommunication.
Senator Leyonhjelm was personally contacted by David Waters for help. He intervened with Goodyear in an effort to right this injustice, and raised the matter in parliament. You can watch Senator Leyonhjelm’s speech here In addition, Senator Leyonhjelm travelled to the USA and met with the NRA to outline Goodyear’s mistreatment of David Waters. The NRA subsequently wrote this article where they expressed their shock at how law-abiding firearm owners are treated in Australia.
Neither the NRA or the Liberal Democrats will take a backward step in protecting the rights of firearm owners. If you believe this is worthy of support, please consider joining the party or making a contribution. It will help ensure there are more Liberal Democrats in more parliaments.
Regards, Gabriel Buckley, National President Liberal Democrats http://www.ldp.org.au/
From where does Keenan get authority to call in firearms?
The Federal Government is terrified of internal security assessments warning the nation is teetering on a powder keg of mistrust and discontent over Muslim immigrants and mendacious politicians implementing policies in unison with the largely despised United Nations.
Domestic intelligence has warned the now unraveling corporate system of government, surreptitiously introduced first by Whitlam and continued by successive governments could dissolve from civil unrest into civil war.
Any casual observer of social media would discover that all governments are held in contempt by a majority of Australians.
The Federal Cabinet is desperate to disarm law-abiding citizens who hold unregistered firearms for many reasons. The main theme found throughout social media and alternative news sites is a distrust of government and more expected violence by Islamists which have infiltrated communities throughout Australia.
As depicted in the lauded 1984 film of doomsday preppers, ‘Red Dawn’ starring Patrick Swazye, when the Russians and Cubans invade rural American towns, their first ploy is to round up and incarcerate gun owners, found from searching firearms registration records.
One reader, a member of the firearms industry, has told Cairns News an estimated one million or more unregistered firearms are held nationwide by the public, which is in fear of losing easily traceable registered firearms when the ‘shit hits the fan.’
Between the seventies and early nineties the industry estimates more than one million Chinese semi-auto SKK and SKS combat carbines were imported. At the 1996 amnesty, only a reported 4000 of these military styled weapons were handed in for crushing. One does not have to be an Einstein to work out the fate of the remaining 996,000, he said.
“The police and military will seize all registered firearms from licensed gun owners across the nation when the trouble starts, leaving the public completely at the mercy of the government,” the industry member said.
“This is why people will hide them, especially ex-military members seeing what happens to a disarmed population when the invaders have all the guns.
“If the government thinks normal people will hand in their guns they are dreaming.”
Another report from a NSW investigator, who wishes to remain anonymous, says that in NSW during the 1996 amnesty, a pistol club and several rifle ranges reported that people of Muslim or similar ethnic appearance toured gun clubs buying whatever firearms they could get their hands on, rather than shooters handing them in for destruction.
Homes of licensed gun owners in NSW were accurately targeted by thieves stealing dozens of pistols and rifles several years ago. Gun club members said many homes in close-together suburbs were raided by thieves who stole their locked up guns. The clubs complained that the NSW firearms registry records had been hacked or deliberately given to thieves. No action was ever taken by authorities.
The Liberal/ALP/Greens Party disarmament
While terrorists continue to kill Australians on home soil, the gun-hating Liberal Party wants to completely disarm 25 million responsible citizens by crushing their firearms and leaving them at the mercy of those who have guns. The criminal element in the ethnic ghettos of Sydney and Melbourne will never voluntarily hand in their firearms.
Those who will keep guns include police and the military. Today a lot of law-abiding citizens actually fear the government which wants to leave us defenceless against the estimated 120,000 Islamic ‘refugees’ who entered the country by air during the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd regime.
It has been acknowledged by security agencies, with the exception of the head of ASIO, that a large number of single males who entered Australia posing as refugees, were between the ages of 16 and35, just the right age to qualify for military service.
Many of these immigrants have had military training in the countries from which they claimed to have fled. Right amongst us now exists a potential fifth column of fighters. Stashes of firearms have already been found in Australian mosques, no doubt many more exist.
Justice Minister Michael Keenan should be targeting firearms held by ethnic groups and actually allowing responsible citizens to carry arms for their self-protection. But Section 18c of the Anti-discrimination Act won’t allow the government to target criminal gangs by ethnicity. Interestingly Keenan was one of the ‘wet’ Liberals who did not support amending this offensive section.
High profile politicians such as Senator David Leyonhjelm and Bob Katter have demanded law abiding citizens be able to carry firearms for their self-defence.
Instead the arm draggers of the LNP/ALP/Greens nexus want to leave us defenceless against Muslim infiltrators and other armed criminals who will never give up their guns.
Crime in Victoria this year increased 10.2 per cent and a spate of home invasions and car-jackings has left police extremely worried.
Public concerns have also been raised about gangs of migrant(Muslim) teens, with reports some parents are sending their teenage children back to countries like Sudan to break the spiral of offending.
Victoria Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane told reporters on Wednesday teenagers from a range of backgrounds were committing home invasions and car-jackings.
“It’s the United Nations — we’re seeing a cross group of offenders who are stealing cars in that way,” he said.
It is believed people in areas suffering from violence and crime are buying bats to arm themselves.
Mr Leane told 3AW they weren’t using the words home invasion or carjacking two years ago and the community had a right to be concerned.
“I understand the nature of fear in our community and for many it’s real for those who have been victimised by those offenders who have come into their house, probably the first time they’ve ever had to call the police,” he said.
“The issue around whether you think a baseball bat and your expertise will defend you in those circumstances, I’m not sure even I could defend myself against a gang that wanted to break into my house.”
As crime statistics reveal, potentially armed citizens are a threat to any criminal or terrorist.
The dumbed-down Liberals and the ALP with their equally irresponsible bureaucracy have some esoteric belief the police will save the public from being shot by a terrorist or a home invader. The families of those killed at the Lindt Cafe in Sydney would disagree.
The Lindt saga would not have got off the ground if just one patron had a legal .22 pistol in their handbag or pocket.
Why doesn’t Mr Keenan look at the avalanche of evidence that has surfaced since the Port Arthur training exercise revealing some of the alleged victims did not exist, or the numerous other anomalies proving Martin Bryant was not present at Port Arthur when the shooting took place at the Broad Arrow Café.
Mr Keenan should ask his colleague, the Liberal President of the senate and former Tasmania police officer, Stephen Parry for confirmation of these facts. Mr Parry was smack in the middle of the Port Arthur training exercise and has subsequently admitted as much in a speech to the Undertakers and Embalmers Association.
In 2016 Parry was outed by Austrian author and forensic investigator, Dr Keith Noble, for his part in the official training exercise cum massacre cover-up.
The Islamists and the crooks know we can’t fight back, unlike our American cousins, who repel fire with fire. Now Australia has assumed the official status of the 51st State of the United States, every responsible citizen should have the option of concealed carry.
It has been announced that the homicide rate has substantially fallen in Australia and the weapon used by criminals in 37 per cent of cases is a knife.
If Minister Keenan has his way, soon you will be eating your food with chopsticks.
