Rural Australia should boycott American-owned freight company TNT/FedEx because it has refused to transport firearms or ammunition around the country.
Shooting Industry Foundation Australia spokesman James Walsh said the move by the multinational freight company was a “kick in the teeth” for farmers and regional residents who depended on firearms for pest eradication and sport.
“FedEx/TNT seemingly have no corporate conscience as they have cancelled an entire Australian industry and then move with a hefty price increase,” Mr Walsh told QCL.
“This is at a time when Australians are more reliant on freight services than ever due to COVID-19.
“Our entire industry has been de-platformed yet TNT managing director, sales, Matt Daniels writes to them stating, ‘Dear Valued Customer, Thank you for your loyal support and ongoing partnership with TNT. We remain committed to providing the best possible experience for you and your customers by constantly improving our logistics service offering’.”
For Brisbane dealer Rob Nioa, one of Australia’s largest gun dealers and manufacturers who had been a customer for 35 years, it was “really hypocritical” and a price-gouging exercise that would hurt regional and rural Australia the most.
Mr Walsh said a message needed to be sent to the big American corporate that had achieved a dominant position in Australia’s freight industry that this behaviour was unacceptable.
TNT’s transportation of firearms finished on Monday, meanwhile SIFA had been speaking with many different freight providers to try and find a solution.
Fed/Ex does have a point in that states’ gun policies are a tangled web of malfeasance and unlawful dictates unable to be deciphered by even the smartest solicitor. Maybe regional Australians should stop voting for the treacherous LNP/ALP duopoly which hates guns. – Editor

Treacherous politicians from July 1 implemented a national firearms amnesty hoping gun owners are sufficiently stupid enough to hand in any unregistered guns for destruction. The pollies are terrified of unregistered guns because they cannot be controlled by their corporate police enforcers. Surely citizens would not stage an armed revolt against unlawful ‘governments’?
What will be the repercussions for pollies and bureaucrats when victims of Covid gene therapy start falling off the perch, as designed, in one or two years time?
Gun confiscations could start at any time because the enforcers have lists of your guns and where you live. It is the alleged half a million unregistered guns they are afraid of.
Will you be silly enough to hand them in?
In any case from where does the federal government get its authority to call a national amnesty. Are not guns the responsibility of the states?
Why are governments afraid of an armed population?

Kerry Stokes, Executive Chairman of Seven Group Holdings has revealed his ties to the Deep State (hidden parallel government) by airing a program that further demonised Port Arthur massacre patsy Martin Bryant.
We are left wondering if Stokes is a part of the Deep State’s alleged child trafficking ring operating in Canberra leaving him just as compromised as several Cabinet Ministers, a few Labor Members, various politicians and senior public servants.
What else would be his motive to run such a slanderous piece?
Readers who have ever viewed our comprehensive gallery about the Port Arthur scam would have seen through the omissions and misrepresentations of Channel Seven almost straight away.
This show is the second time Channel 7 has stuffed up in their lying narrative when mentally incapacitated Bryant appeared in the official police interview demonstrating he was a left-handed shooter.
Every police witness statement describing the shooter said he was right-handed. End of story!
Then the dodgy reporter tried to hang the murder of Bryant’s father onto him with 25 year old hearsay evidence from two obscure neighbours. Why have these two neighbours been quiet since 1996?
Cairns News several years ago published a photograph taken from Channel 7’s own footage at Port Arthur in 1996.
The photo showed one of the two shooters and named both . Nobody has claimed Kerry Stokes is the sharpest tack in the box, so their stupidity could be forgiven.
AUSTRALIAN HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION: Prisoners and Human Rights
“One right of special importance to prisoners is the right to be treated with humanity, dignity and respect while in detention. This human right is set out in articles 7 and 10 of the ICCPR, article 37 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and in the Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (CAT).”
The only way to understand the Port Arthur incident is to cease accepting the official narrative is the truth – the whole truth. Every significant fact has to be assessed with an objectivity which does not have as its motive the setting up of a patsy, but which is motivated by the need for undeniable truth. We must, in Roger Bacon’s words, resist “weak and unworthy authority, longstanding custom, the feeling of the ignorant crowd, and the hiding of our own ignorance,” all of which send us back to the official narrative. As soon as your truth torch lights up, you will see Martin Bryant is INNOCENT!
The Australian military, as a trial, will be patrolling with Queensland Police in Toowoomba until May 16 the day after Australian Freedom Rallies are staged around the nation. What a coincidence and for an alleged Christian PM Scott Morrison your actions have confirmed your intentions. As far as the Marxist Queensland Premier goes most people outside of the precious SE corner know exactly what the Bolshies are up to. How many readers saw the communist Unionists march in Brisbane and Barcaldine on May day? Thankfully some good Samaritan poisoned the Labor ‘Tree of Knowledge’ at Barcaldine years ago. Real Labor died with it. What happened to the good old decent unionists of the post-war era? They have been replaced by left wing, hairy arm-pitted, smelly, tattooed Green eunuchs who don’t even know if they have balls or a vagina. That readers, represents today’s Labor Party, the culmination of a generational war by socialist academia strategically installed in universities, schools and most obviously the media. Children born since 1980 have been the victims. God help Australia.

Like many thousands of our readers, Cairns News hopes and prays that the Prime Minister at the time of the shooting in 1996, John Howard, will be interrogated by an independent inquiry or perhaps by another Coronial Inquest.
Allegedly 35 people were killed at Port Arthur, Tasmania on April 28, 1996. Martin Bryant, allegedly the shooter with an official IQ of an 11 year old, meticulously planned all by himself a complex strategy to decoy local police and fire on tourists employing a shooting ability that then Brigadier Ted Serong said equaled the best in the world.
Bountiful evidence shows the federal and Tasmanian governments conspired with Mossad intelligence and others to disarm the Australian population. An Inquest would have no choice but to find this outcome based on the overwhelming evidence we have published over the years. Subsequent evidence given to Cairns News revealed the Jesuits also were involved.
The only Inquest ever held into Port Arthur found Martin Bryant was not responsible for the alleged killings. Watch the video and weep for Australia. The evil LNP/ALP duopoly has created this horrible morass that continues today.
Unfortunately today all of the State’s Premiers, the Prime Minister and many in the Cabinet are compromised beyond help and are making such detrimental decisions dancing to the tune of the Deep State. The Labor Opposition is no better.
Until the TV-conditioned, brainwashed voters stop voting for the duopoly and elect independents, they will have signed their own death warrants. How many of them get the unnecessary and dangerous Covid jab will determine the fate of this once proud country.
NEARLY $10,000 has been spent by one Queensland shooting organisation in legal fights on behalf of its members following policy changes by the state’s Weapons Licensing Branch – and there’s no sign of that letting up anytime soon, either.
Following in the wake of a Question on Notice in Queensland Parliament from KAP Member for Hinchinbrook, Nick Dametto last week demanding an explanation for firearms licensing delays, cancellations and seizures, pre-eminent pro-shooting organisation Shooters Union Australia has waded into the fray.
Shooters Union Australia president Graham Park said the organisation had spent nearly $10,000 this year alone helping its members with Weapons Licensing issues.
“It’s completely unprecedented – we’ve dealt with more requests for legal help from our members in the past two months than we have in the past two years,” he said.
“It all stems from a deeply flawed Audit into Weapons Licensing, and in particular the auditors essentially not understanding what they were looking at and deciding, for some inexplicable reason, that law-abiding firearms users were the issue and not the incredibly outdated and not-fit-for-purpose systems in the state’s firearms registry.
“We’ve supported more than a dozen applications to the Queensland Civil Administration Tribunal (QCAT), covering everything from people having licences taken off them for speeding offences from decades ago, to primary producers who WLB deemed didn’t earn enough as a farmer to keep their licence.
“In a lot of cases, the situation is sorted out amicably before the QCAT hearing, but a number of cases have gone all the way with rulings in the shooter’s favour.
Mr Park said the situation now was simply chewing up vast sums of taxpayer’s money and administrative resources for no reason other than political appearances.
“Every dollar wasted by police justifying a pointless QCAT case because someone got busted smoking a marijuana joint in 1998 is a dollar that’s not being used to ensure frontline police and emergency services personnel have the equipment and resources they need to fight real and serious crimes like assault or robbery,” he said.
“What makes it worse is this problem could literally go away today if Weapons Licensing stopped actively looking for reasons to deny licenses to people, and went back to the way things were before the Audit when everything was working more or less satisfactorily.”
Mr Park welcomed Mr Dametto’s Question on Notice and said bureaucratic over-reach needed to be exposed and held to account.
“Imagine if the Department of Transport decided to refuse you a driver’s licence because of a decades old misdemeanour, or because you had dodgy mates, or because they decided you didn’t live far enough from your work to need a car – that’s pretty much exactly what happens to law-abiding shooters all the time,” he said.
“We are glad an MP is standing up for the constituents and saying ‘This is not OK’, and we are very much looking forward to the Police Minister’s reply when he provides it by March 29.”

The Marxists of the Queensland Labor Party want your guns and many cops are in bed with them. Cairns News and other patriotic sites warned this would happen before the Queensland election last October.
If you have been prosecuted for drink driving in the past 30 or more years you will lose your gun licence when it comes up for renewal.
Speeding lately? Same thing if you get excess demerit points gone are your guns! Yelled at a neighbour for having a noisy party? Gone are your guns.
Had a fight with your missus or kids? Gone are your guns.
The Labor Party has allowed the drones of the Queensland Weapons Licensing Branch to decide who is a fit and proper person to own firearms regardless if you are a farmer or a baker.
Wait there’s more…. There is no appeal, or so the Weapons Branch believes. Gun owners had better prepare themselves for a Creepy Joe Biden style gun confiscation because the ALP supports Crime boss Biden and his Antifa Congressmen to a man, woman, transgender, dyke, poofter, neutered, lost….what other creatures are there?
The cops have a union leader goes by the name of Ian Leavers, naturally a copper, who believes only cops should own guns, certainly not the public.
But don’t despair, there is a solution. Gun owners silly enough to hand in their valuable guns and heirlooms to Jewish Johnnie deserved all they got, which wasn’t much for individual guns that would be worth a fortune today. Fortunately a lot of shooters did’nt hand in a thing.
I have followed Cairns News for the past eight or nine years so readers would be aware of retired policeman David Walter’s efforts to unravel socialist Peter Beattie’s rewrite of the Queensland Constitution in 2001. He removed the Crown just as the Marxist and closeted gay Fabius Maximus Gough Whitlam did in 1974….only the Queen didn’t go along with his unlawful revised Royal Styles and Titles Act in which Gough Whitless said she was now the Queen of Australia.
There is no such thing. There have been cases in the past few months where Magistrates in summary jurisdiction operating under Admiralty law have thrown out police prosecutions for a range of matters. Because the police do not have the lawful ability to prosecute anybody other than a political party member or a member of Queensland’s 250,000 bureaucracy.
Hang onto your guns, lose them if necessary but never give them up to the Communists of George Street Brisbane or those at 6 Macquarie St, Sydney. You will need them soon.

A DEEPLY flawed and mishandled audit of the Queensland Police Service Weapons Licensing Branch is the direct cause of this week’s data breach, according to the state’s leading pro-shooting organisation.
More than 1000 gun owners accidentally had their e-mail addresses shared visibly when a police officer sending a mass e-mail to shooters in the Moreton police district forgot to put the details in the “BCC” field.
The incident made national headlines amidst concerns the security of thousands of firearms had been compromised by the error.
Shooters Union Australia President Graham Park said the incident was a direct result of a recent audit of the Weapons Licensing branch by the Queensland Audit Office, which was regarded as deeply flawed by the shooting community.
“This audit report, and in particular its recommendations, totally ignored the real issues facing the state’s Weapons Licensing Branch and firearms regulation framework, ignored the input of shooting organisations and firearms dealers, and instead blamed licensed, law-abiding shooters for police internal issues,” he said.
“It’s clear that in the wake of the audit, front-line and operational police are taking heat from management and political sources and being pushed to appear as if they are coming down on gun owners.
“That’s created a situation where, among other things, police feel compelled to e-mail more than a thousand licensed gun owners to remind them of firearm security matters, as part of an effort to appear proactive and ‘doing something’ about managing firearms in the state.
“As we’ve seen, it only took an unintentional and easily made, but potentially devastating, error to compromise the data and security of a thousand gun owners – all in the name of politically motivated busywork.”
Mr Park said Shooters Union had conducted its own investigation and the information available clearly showed the mishandled audit had sparked this incident.
“There is no doubt in our minds this data breach is directly related to the Audit,” he said.
“Everything we know about how the Weapons Licensing software works indicates it was only a matter of time before an event like this happened, and this flawed Audit has been the primer that’s set it off.”
Cairns News has a few basic policies and one is for all firearms to be dropped from the register. The register has proven to be highly inaccurate and is of no use in fighting crime because 99 per cent of licensed gun owners do not commit crimes. Katters Australian Party too has a similar sensible policy. Remove the registration of firearms and 300 police officers could actually do some policing in the Far North starting at Townsville where runaway crime has ruined many lives.
The Labor Party has no answers and for Labor candidates north of Rockhampton to be re-elected suggests to us Dominion and China indeed had a hand in the Queensland election result.
After all the Labor Party sent the Queensland Electoral roll to China three months before the election.
AN E-mail bungle by Queensland Police has exposed the personal details of hundreds of the
state’s licensed firearm owners, sparking security concerns being raised by one of
Queensland’s peak pro-shooting organisations.
A police officer in the Moreton Police District, encompassing parts of the Moreton Bay
region, sent an e-mail to more than 350 licensed gun owners on Wednesday, advising them
to ensure their firearms security was in order following a series of break-ins in the region.
However, the sender did not hide the recipient’s e-mail addresses, meaning every single
person who received the e-mail also received the names and e-mail addresses of the other
Shooters Union Queensland president Graham Park said while it might sound like a
harmless error of the type anyone could make, it could have extremely serious
“Thanks to this error, the details of several hundred licensed gun owners have been
exposed including their names and e-mail addresses,” he said.
“It might not sound like much, but that alone is enough for someone with criminal intent to
start piecing together the location of hundreds of firearms in the area.”
Moreton District Officer Superintendent John Hallam said investigations showed human error was the cause of the breach of more than 1,200 email addresses.
“The email address of the licensed weapon holders was placed in the ‘to’ line of the email as opposed to the blind copy line,” he said.
“It was an honest mistake — there’s been nothing to indicate the officer did it for any other reason.
“The officer did endeavour to recall the email as soon as she realised what the error was but unfortunately that was unsuccessful.”
Mr Hallam acknowledged the concern from the shooting community.
“I accept that the error is unacceptable. I understand how it occurred but it is unacceptable,” he said.
“I understand there is a level of concern amongst the people that their personal details have been sent out.
“What was sent out was their email address and their email address only and it went to other licensed weapons holders.”
Shooters Union president Graham Park said the error cast more doubt on the firearm registry system in Queensland.
“This system is supposed to be a highly secure system,” he said.
Mr Park said while gun owners were, by legislation and their nature, among the very most
trustworthy and law-abiding people in the community, an additional concern was how the
information came to be mishandled in the first place.
“It seems a lot like all these e-mail addresses were somehow put in a spreadsheet or text
document or something like that, then copied into an e-mail address field,” he said.
“The fact there’s an option in the firearms management software to mass-extract e-mail
addresses is a gigantic security flaw that raises extremely serious questions about the
integrity of the firearms registry system in Queensland as a whole.
“What other data can be pulled out easily and transferred elsewhere?”
Shooters Union Australia has contacted the Police Minister requesting the situation be resolved – not just with an apology and a shrug, but a commitment to fix the issues and
ensure affected shooters are protected and compensated if they suffer any adverse affects
from the breach.
“The irony is one of the advice items from the police to licence-holders in the e-mail was
‘Don’t make it public knowledge that you possess firearms’,” Mr Park said.
“That’s now off the table for those several hundred gun owners, all because of a situation
outside their control and which shouldn’t have happened in the first place.”

Another supposedly normal person suddenly turned into a monster shooting and killing 19 innocent Canadians three days ago while masquerading as a police officer.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau would well know the shooter is another Manchurian Candidate unleashed onto the public in Nova Scotia after the businessman almost certainly had been programmed by the CIA’s long- running MK Ultra brainwashing operation.
Today the socialist Trudeau naturally mentioned tightening gun laws and that the shooter is connected to militant gun rights activists.
Conditioned in a ruthless manner similar to almost every other mass shooter other than the staged massacres using crisis actors, it is not yet known if this is another false flag event.
Meanwhile Trudeau’s wife Sophie, after recently returning from a trip to the UK tested positive for Coronavirus at about the same time British PM Boris Johnson was hospitalised for Covid 19 treatment.
It has been alleged by US sources that a dozen or more notable world luminaries such as Prince Charles and Tom Hanks who caught a dose of the virus in Queensland, Australia while working on a Gold Coast film set all took a shot from a batch of ‘fountain of youth’ Adrenochrome spiked by Covid 19.
Adrenochrome, manufactured from adrenalin-charged blood of living youth, is supposed to keep older people young and is a favourite drug of the Satanic cults of which Hanks is claimed to be a member.
Wuhan in China is the largest supplier of Adrenochrome which is listed by the US Health Department as unsuitable for human use.
Premier Palaszczuk, Jackie Trad and Warren Entsch do not give a damn about the Far North; let it burn!
These politicians refuse to partition North Queensland from Coronavirus
Far North Queensland Coronavirus tally stands at 19 confirmed, imported cases in Cairns and Hinterland
Gun shops in Qld and WA closed
These politicians don’t care if North Queenslanders live or die from Coronavirus. Top left to right: Deputy Premier Jackie Trad; Federal Liberal Member for Leichardt(Cairns) Warren Entsch and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk. While the Far North has only 21 confirmed cases of Coronavirus, now is the time to shut the gate.
Speaker of the House and Member for Mulgrave (Cairns) has joined the ‘hate North Queenslanders’ throng by opposing the annexure of North Queensland to keep out Coronavirus.. He told the ABC the boundary being suggested by KAP leader Robbie Katter and many others is the proposed boundary for the new State of North Queensland. Therefore he opposes it. There is no doubt voters who survive the epidemic will remember this if they get to vote again.
These disingenuous politicians do not give a damn about North Queensland. In spite of urgent calls from the medical profession, local government, residents and politicians, Comrade Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk and Comrade Deputy Premier Jackie Trad refuse to separate North Queensland from the Coronavirus hotspots of south east Queensland.
Member for Traeger, Robbie Katter has demanded the State Labor Government cut off North Queensland at Marlborough, Central Queensland before any more infected travelers from the south afflict an as yet largely healthy population.
Close the gun shops
Instead a terrified State Government responded by ordering the closure of all gun shops.
Northern gun dealers have reported record ammo sales and an unusual spike in gun sales.
But the horse has bolted. Gunshops are on their last stocks of ammunition and if the Labor Party thought hoarding dunny rolls was awful, they had better remember there are more than 600,000 registered gun owners in Queensland and at least another100,000 unregistered.
Rolling out the army to keep tabs on those quarantined with Coronavirus has now branched into the military manning road blocks on all entrances into Cape York Peninsula, west to Kowanyama and south at the Gulf Developmental Road turnoff at 40 mile scrub, about 45 minutes south of Mt Garnet.
All of these roadblocks will be situated in Bob Katter’s electorate of Kennedy.
Has anyone heard if the federal government has sought permission from the Governor General to declare martial law?
Some politicians are more caring about North Queensland than the urbane Labor Party of the south east.
North Queensland Federal Members Michele Landry, George Christensen, Phillip Thompson and Senator Matt Canavan have backed Bob and Robbie Katter’s demand to separate the northern part of the state before there are any more infections.
These worthwhile Members have much more on their minds than the next state election which the Labor Party is predicted to lose.
Civil disobedience took on a new meaning in Virginia, US yesterday, as many thousands of gun rights supporters took to the street in defiance of the Virginia Governor’s edict to drastically tighten up gun laws and ban armed civilians from demonstrating in the streets.
Police stood on helplessly as Second Amendment rights proponents filled the streets, where numerous armed militia members carrying semi-automatic military rifles goaded Virginia law enforcement to “bring it on.”
Naturally Australian gun owners would not ever have the balls to stage a similar show of force after being dumbed-down by their collective soft-cock shooting bodies, the party duopoly and the left media which have rolled over with each and every tightening of gun laws since the false flag Port Arthur massacre in 1996.
Cairnsnews stands shoulder to shoulder with our American brothers on the inalienable right of freemen to carry and bear arms.
