You won’t see this data on the evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note fellow Australians, before it’s too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson.
With guns, we are “citizens”. Without them, we are “subjects”.
During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this message to all of your friends.

Editor: Recent research shows Katter’s Australian Party is the only political party in the country which supports the abolishment of long arms registration and no restrictions on ammo sales.

Liberal Member for Warrego urges ALP mates to remove Katter’s staff
The ongoing lies of Ann Leahy must be addressed. The Member for Warrego goes on like a broken record with her false claims the KAP preferenced Labor over the LNP at the last election. A simple fact check by visiting the Electoral Commission Queensland website, where all how to vote cards from the last election are recorded, puts Ann Leahy’s favourite fantasy to bed and exposes her willingness to deceive the public. Clearly the 22 LNP staff just aren’t enough when it comes to undertaking a simple fact check. I have requested a meeting with Ms Leahy so I can assist her on how to read how to vote cards.
As far as her reference to the KAP undertaking a ‘sweet heart deal’ with Labor at the previous Parliament, the Member for Warrego forgot to mention the fact the LNP also offered this so-called‘ sweet heart deal’ to the KAP. It’s also important to remember it was Peter Wellington who gave Labor government, not the KAP.
Ann Leahy receives $60,000 a year over and above her MP entitlement – for being an opposition spokeswoman. Apparently this isn’t even enough for get together facts right, but it is enough for her to spend a huge amount of time attacking the KAP rather than the government. Nice work if you can get it Ann. Being so flush with cash it would only be fair to highlight what Ms Leahy has done for her electorate and regional Queensland. Well, we all know not a single LNP member has introduced a Private Member’s Bill in this Parliament.
However, Ms Leahy did attend a hearing of an estimates committee that wasn’t her own in Brisbane and achieved…absolutely nothing. While she was busy achieving nothing in Brisbane, KAP members were out in our electorates. Of course it is a matter of record that the KAP, with support from Billy Gordon, blocked the Labor government’s vegetation management laws in the previous parliament.
Ann Leahy’s only impact on Queensland has been to ensure other regional MPs lost four staff and reduced their ability to help regional Queenslanders. The LNP’s voting record on rural issues, rather than the KAP, has been more closely aligned with the Labor Government such as the Dairy Bill, Rural Development Bank and the Budget from the previous parliament. Well done Ann, regional Queensland salutes you for all of your great work.

Broken election promises and inaction on recommendations from the Lemon Laws inquiry of 2015 are hurting Queensland ‘lemon’ vehicle owners badly. It is costing consumers and the State economy in the millions as rogue manufacturers and dealers continue to thrive and grow.
A ‘lemon’ is a vehicle—including a car, caravan or other recreational vehicle, or motorbike—that is severely defective, often dangerous and has often had multiple repairs but is still defective. This leaves the owner financially, emotionally and often physically in a very bad way.
The Australian Consumer Law is supposed to protect consumers but it doesn’t when it comes to expensive products. Regulators are supposed to protect consumers but they don’t and say they can’t. Rogue businesses exploit loopholes in the ACL, breach other laws and never get fined or prosecuted.
The Paluszek Government could have resolved this problem in 2016, after they accepted most of the recommendations of the Lemon Inquiry Report. They didn’t do a thing. All they agreed to do is fob it off to the ACL review process, which is yet to conclude some two years later.
They also made an election promise in March to increase the QCAT limit from $25,000 to $100,000. The majority recommendation in the Lemon Inquiry report is no cap but $100,000 is better than no change. Queensland lemon vehicle owners are still waiting. I am one of them. How much longer?
The consumer losses are in the multi millions and all governments around Australia are protecting the perpetrators. They fiddle while Rome is burning. The financial losses are one thing, but the losses in life are quite another. So many new vehicles are dangerous, there are no product safety laws, recalls are often too late and there have been few, if any, prosecutions.
Governments are paying lip service to consumer protection while in fact protecting the perpetrators. The wheels of government grind very, very slowly while consumers continue to suffer. The Queensland Government is a prime example of lip service and inaction after initiating an inquiry and getting consumers’ hopes up that there might be change.
The problem goes much, much deeper. Product safety statistics are quite horrifying. ACCC reports 4.5 million products recalled (including the Takata air bag disaster, with no prosecutions to date); half of all Australian households are affected by unsafe products; a minimum of ten consumers a day are injured by faulty products; and cars, caravans and camping products are listed as key culprits.
How does this happen if there is an effective consumer protection regime? It doesn’t and is evidence that the ACL and consumer protection is fundamentally flawed in Australia, while governments choose to protect the perpetrators and abandon consumers by not enforcing the laws that are already there.
Walk the talk Premier Paluszek. Or have more blood on your hands. You would think they might learn after the Dreamworld disaster but the Queensland government appears to be a slow learner.
