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.
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
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.

Police in Arlington, TX are praising the swift action of a concealed carry permit holder who stepped up to eliminate a threat in a local restaurant Wednesday night.
Authorities say the gunman walked into Zona Caliente, in the 6500 block of South Cooper Street, about 6:15 p.m. and fatally shot 37-year-old Cesar Perez of Duncanville, the bar’s manager, Arlington police spokesman Christopher Cook said.
Authorities later found two loaded guns and two knives on the gunman, Jones, Cook said.
“We do believe he had the capacity to do much greater harm,” Cook said.
Witnesses told police the gunman entered the establishment and immediately began yelling incoherently at patrons.
“People didn’t know who he was yelling at,” Cook said.
Those same witnesses saw Perez trying to have a conversation with the man to calm him down before he was shot and killed.
That’s when a patron with a concealed carry permit told his wife to get down as he drew his weapon and eliminated the gunman, preventing further loss of life.
“After he was struck once, the suspect started shooting at the front door,” Cook told the Arlington Voice. “We know people were trying to escape, but we’re not sure if he was just trying to harm others.”
Cook said the customer, who was dining with his wife, “prevented further loss of life.”
The customer, who has not been identified, was carrying a handgun under the Texas concealed handgun license program, Cook later confirmed.
“We’re treating the good guy as sort of a hero,” Cook said.
In a statement, Arlington PD said: “This customer was armed with a handgun and engaged the shooter by firing his weapon towards the suspect, striking him. The suspect was pronounced deceased at the scene. It is too early to determine a motive or whether the suspect knew the employee.”
Police confirm there were over a dozen patrons and a handful of staff in the Zona Caliente at the time of the shooting. One person was injured by glass as they were exiting the building following the incident, but thanks to the swift actions of a good guy with a gun, no further loss of life or injuries were reported. from Bearing Arms

Cairnsnews has been researching the Port Arthur massacre since it happened. The research team has come to the conclusion that without any doubt whatsoever Martin Bryant shot nobody on this day 20 years ago. Therefore who did the shooting and more importantly who was behind it?
All fingers point towards a false flag event orchestrated by government. Why would our government do such a thing to our people? Who assisted the government in carrying out this country’s worst ever terrorist attack?
A former Queensland resident and author now based in Austria, Keith Noble, has amassed an amazing and thoroughly researched Ebook (download or read below) which we will publish in conjunction with our video entitled Port Arthur Anniversary Uncovered.
These presentations are probably the most comprehensive, independent investigations of the Port Arthur incident yet published. If what happened at Port Arthur on the 27th and 28th of April 1996 is of concern to you and you want the first official inquiry into this massacre to occur, we suggest you contact you local federal member of Parliament and demand an independent inquiry be held by a panel of three overseas-based justices. This investigation should have the authority of a Royal Commission.

KATTER CALLS FOR CONSULTATION AS NFA REVIEW LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED
With the National Firearms Agreement (NFA) set to be discussed at the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting very soon, Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) has publically echoed the concerns of sporting shooters calling for licensed firearm owners to be included in the “biggest gun laws reform since the Howard era”.
Queensland KAP state leader Rob Katter publically slammed the lack of involvement of licensed firearm owners, farmers and key stakeholders in the NFA review to date, urging for a more consultative approach in any further discussions. “The shooting community are always trying to work with the government, we cannot continue to let such a significant portion of the rural population be ostracised,” said Mr Katter. “As we have made very clear in the past, we will be doing everything within our power to ensure appropriate consultation around these laws takes place. We don’t want to see the government place any unnecessary restrictions against law abiding gun owners, sportsmen and women.”
The KAP has also led the charge in calling for the former Queensland Weapons Advisory Panel to be reinstated, which existed as a ministerial consultation body under the Beattie, Bligh and Newman Governments. Fellow KAP MP Shane Knuth moved a motion in the Queensland Parliament on March 17 specifically calling for the Weapons Advisory Panel to be reinstated. The SSAA and other likeminded groups would have been a part of this panel. The motion was unfortunately disallowed.
SSAA Queensland President Michael Pommer said it was extremely disappointing that the government appeared disinterested in even considering reinstating the panel, especially due to the complete lack of consultation with key stakeholders and sporting shooters under the minority Labor Government. “The lack of consultation to date has been extremely disappointing and, as the largest group representing sporting shooters and hunters in Queensland, we have a lot to bring to the table in terms of evidence-based policy discussions,” he said. “We applaud the efforts of the KAP in their attempts to reinstate the panel and will continue to call on the government to include us in any discussions that will affect our sport and chosen pastime.”
With the NFA review officially commencing following a recommendation from the Martin Place Siege inquiry, any changes to the NFA floated at COAG would have transpired in a little more than a year since the joint Commonwealth-New South Wales siege report was handed down. While SSAA National has been included in the review through meetings of the Firearms Industry Reference Group, chaired by Justice Minister Michael Keenan, some state police ministers haven’t been as consultative, such as the case in Queensland.
SSAA National President Geoff Jones will be meeting with the Minister in the coming weeks and the SSAA-LA will bring you all the latest details, including any decisions made, as the information comes to hand.
“Our members can rest assured that we have made it crystal clear to the Minister that any changes resulting in further onerous restrictions on law-abiding firearm owners in a Federal Election year will be noted,” said Geoff. “Furthermore, as part of our election coverage, members and the broader firearms community will be kept informed on any issues relating to our sport and where each political party stands as we head to the ballot boxes, whenever that may be.”
SSAA President Geoff Jones laments, “…any changes resulting in further onerous restrictions on law-abiding owners in a Federal election year will be noted…” A typical wishy washy statement from the SSAA.
Jones should be telling all political parties the SSAA will campaign against them and target marginal electorates particularly in the regions instead of having two bob each way. The SSAA lost its way 20 years ago and has done nothing for shooters since then. Editor, and former member.
