Letter to the Editor
Personally, I have never bought into the purported belief that we in Australia are basically a gunless nation. Quite the contrary. I’m convinced we are in reality armed to the back teeth. We may have foolishly surrendered a reasonable portion of firearms back in ’96, but we’ve had more than ample time to recoup. And become a lot smarter in the aquisition and squirrelling of them.
In NZ, the government only recently had to finally admit that their Howardesque gun recall was an epic fail. In fact gun ownership there has since doubled in only 3 years! and is steadily increasing.
Here in Australia, they’re at it again with the national gun amnesty launched in February. This is clear evidence that we are very far from being unarmed. Currently this amnesty is being ‘cranked to eleven’ under the pretext of “keeping communities safe”. Hahaha! Like the scamdemic mandates and death shots are to “keep us healthy and safe”. Gun holders aren’t going to fall for this again. Most likely only a small percentage of firearms will be handed in due to warring neighbours and the like dobbing each other in. (And it’s highly unlikely that the silly sheeple have guns right?!). But of course the handed-in numbers will be massively fudged with this too.
Why this amnesty? and why now?. What are the ‘powers that be’ plotting? Or are they preparing for the inevitable pushback from subjecting us to even more tyranny? Could they fear that a Dominion voting system rigged election may finally push people over the edge?
Whatever nefariousness is afoot, there’s definitely a sh*t-storm on the horizon. Just sayin’.

Over the past week Cairns News has received numerous letters of complaint about gun clubs banning un-vaxxed shooters. So we gave the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia the opportunity to respond to the complaints by sending a media inquiry to the national office on January 2:
We have received numerous complaints that the SSAA has banned un-vaccinated shooters on their Queensland rifle and pistol ranges.
Could you please advise your policy for vaccinated and un-vaccinated shooters and what element of law has allowed your organisation to impose bans?
To be fair we waited until today for a reply but none has been forthcoming so it seems the long-ago infiltrated organisation has officially jumped into bed with the communists of the Queensland Labor Party and their Deep State directors to remove all guns from the population. Discriminating against un-vaxxed members by following unlawful mandates eventually will lead to serious divisions within the membership, exposure to innumerable court cases and the ultimate destruction of the organisation.
Removing guns from free members of society has been the objective of the United Nations for three decades and we all know the UN drives all ALP and most LNP policy.
Remember the Queensland Police Union President Ian Leavers once said on ABC Radio: “Only police should own guns….”
SSAA members with any scruples would immediately resign and form their own clubs which do not discriminate. After all none of the gun-owning Cairns News contributors we have contacted can remember when the SSAA ever opposed any of the ALP/LNP’s anti-gun legislation, except in the early nineties when John Galbraith was the president. He was hounded by the police from pillar to post when he publicly opposed continuous draconian legislation, according to several contributors.
Since then all executive committees have rolled over to the government of the day. Luckily for shooters Cairns News was being read in 112 countries around the world yesterday so the message should spread far and wide particularly among NRA members in the US.
Here is just one example of the SSAA’s duplicity:
Hi guys Thought I would share the latest left wing news. I am a member of the SSAA sports shooters association Australia. Being a member you give your time to help improve the club we contribute to working bees and volunteer our time to assist others in the sport. However they have made a blanket decision that if you are not double vaccinated you cannot enter the club. I am going to give them as much shit as I can as I believe they are operating in the governments favour to assist with disarming people. Spread the news and get others who are un-vaccinated to cancel their membership of this biased club.
Email : Craig.email@example.com
The SSAA executive would do well to remember the message from some of the world’s top doctors and medical researchers that we have a ‘pandemic of the vaccinated.’ The majority of Australian hospital admissions for alleged Covid infections are those who have been jabbed with the deadly mRNA concoction, according to Australian health advices.
The Covid scamdemic and medical propaganda has engulfed the Gympie Pistol Club which has banned the un-vaxxed. Cairnsnews is probably the most pro-gun site on the internet but it won’t support the stupidity and ignorance of the Gympie members who voted for the lockout.
When their members start feeling the dangerous effects of the deadly jab, as tens of thousands of others across Australia have already suffered, they might change their tune.
Any smart shooter who is locked out can easily take criminal legal action against the club and sue for damages starting with the Privacy Act 1988, the Anti-discrimination Act and Commonwealth Constitution Section 51,
(xxiiiA.) The provision of maternity allowances, widows’ pensions, child endowment, unemployment, pharmaceutical, sickness and hospital benefits, medical and dental services (but not so as to authorize any form of civil conscription), benefits to students and family allowances:
Just research this site and the message is clear. The Emperor has no clothes.
Gympie Pistol Club Minutes
December 19, 2021, a committee vote was undertaken which resulted in a split decision and the President was called upon to cast a deciding vote. The vote was conducted in accordance with the Gympie Pistol Club’s constitution,. The motion to allow un-vaccinated members and guests to be able to attend the pistol club or not was passed, and the decision was made NOT to allow the attendance of un-vaccinated persons at the club, unless there is a genuine medical reason for not getting vaccinated against Covid 19. As of 1am Tuesday 28th December 2021, no un-vaccinated are to attend the club premises.

We encourage our many readers and those who are members of the shooting fraternity, to report on other clubs or bodies which have banned the many un-vaxxed, free and natural citizens of Queensland or elsewhere.
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.

Every level of Australian government has been under cyber-attack by hackers for some time, said Prime Minister Scott Morrison yesterday, pointedly not naming China as the perpetrator.
According to the Council on Foreign Relations, China, Russia and Iran are the top three states suspected of sponsoring cyber operations.
The chief executive officer of the Cyber Security Cooperative Research Centre (CSCRC), Rachael Falk, said while people may want to point fingers at particular countries, attributing blame was a “distraction”.
“It doesn’t matter where it comes from to be honest with you,” she said.
Federal and state governments hold a treasure trove of personal information on every citizen in the country, from birth certificates to bank account numbers. All of this data can be accessed by sophisticated hackers.
For years Cairnsnews has been exposing the folly of government and industry collecting personal information and just 18 months ago the Federal Government began establishing a national facial recognition data bank using passport and drivers licence photos to amass a huge file on every citizen.
Fortunately for now at least this evil plan was dashed by a parliamentary committee which advised against such a massive abuse of privacy.
Every police main frame computer across the nation holds the personal details of firearms licence holders.
In light of the widespread civil unrest in America, now beginning in Australia, a country such as communist China would salivate at getting its hands on the firearms registers, that is if they haven’t already got them.
When China moves on a largely undefended Australia the first citizens to be shot will be registered firearm owners. We can thank God many thousands of gun owners or their weapons do not appear in these registers.
Major shooter’s organisations like the SSAA, the ACTA and pistol shooter’s groups rolled over right from the start in 1996 when the political duopoly moved against gun owners with the National Firearms Agreement after the Port Arthur scam.
The only members of any parliament in Australia to vote against new firearms laws in 1998 and forced upon every state by the treacherous Jewish Prime Minister John Howard assisted by Deputy PM and Jesuit Tim Fischer were the gutsy Christian independent state member from Gladstone in Queensland, Elizabeth Cunningham and maverick Bob Katter.
The SSAA by 2000 had been neutered from within.
Only the Shooters Union and veteran politician Bob Katter have ever mounted a formidable campaign against firearm registration and restrictive gun laws in general.
Shooters be warned by these world events particularly in the US which has been so weakened that it will be unable to substantially help Australia when the Chinks move on us or when the Indonesians move in after we become a spent force.
The Australian Army was forced by military pacts between various countries, for the first time, to train Indonesian troops in Kangaroo 87 exercises held in Central Queensland. Australian soldiers were horrified while watching Indos parachuting onto Australian soil at Shoalwater Bay military training ground.
In recent times the specialist troops of Norforce have been instructed to train Chinese soldiers how to live off the land in Northern Australia. A source said the Chinese soldiers being trained pretended they could not understand English, but were later overheard speaking in English among themselves.
When it hits the fan, politicians, police and those in authority, based on historical methods of insurrection will be the first targets of an armed citizenry. The Nuremberg principle will apply to traitors if they are lucky.
Whoever takes us on, communists or Muslims, we will sink on our present course.
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.
from Firearm Owners United
A section of One Nation firearms policy for NSW
Firearms Consultative Committee
NSW One Nation supports the establishment of a Firearms Consultative Committee as proposed by the Sporting Shooters Association of Australia (NSW). This would assist Government in developing legislation that is evidence-based, supports law-abiding firearm owners, is in the public interest and targets the criminal use of firearms.
One Nation strongly supports law-abiding firearm owners who deserve greater public recognition for their role in storing their guns as safely as possible, keeping them out of the wrong hands. Our four priorities are to:
- Recognise that as a matter of principle, licensed firearm ownership by law-abiding citizens for legitimate business purposes (such as farming) and recreational pursuits is a right in a free society.
- Maintain the 1996 national gun laws that have played a role in preventing public massacres in Australia for 23 years, allowing shooters to get on with their sport without constant calls in parliament for gun law tightening and increasingly Draconian restrictions on gun ownership.
- Crack down on the illegal importation of guns into Australia as a vital public safety measure.
- Minimise the chance of radical Islamic terrorists getting hold of weaponry in Australia for their evil purposes.
When you open with the usual false binary comparison about “USA vs Australia” you know it’s only going one way.
Stating that firearm ownership is a right but first prefacing it as licenced is contradictory – it’s either a right or it’s not. Cracking down on extremists and illegal imports are vanilla statements and plain old common sense.
In fairness, supporting development of shooting facilities and pest control in regional NSW is a good thing, but how they go about this (particularly with the current debacle) is another matter. David Leyonhjelm was able to secure a long-term lease for Malabar in Sydney while also advocating for getting rid of the NFA.
There’s nothing in the policy about self-defence, castle doctrine, eliminating appearance laws, reining in NSW Police’s rampant authoritarian stupidity on firearms and a whole slew of important firearm issues.
To be quite honest, this policy just reads as the usual token nod to firearm owners but maintaining business as usual – explicitly stated with the “maintain the 1996 national gun laws” which aren’t national anyway.
To Latham’s credit, he did go to SSAA Sydney and try out shooting to see the other side of the argument. However, the gun-grabbing elements of the current Labor Party are on display here. The Labor Party of old would never have stood for this, but the Labor Party died long ago.
PHON forget their history and their roots of being elected in 1998 on the back of the 1996 laws in Queensland, as part of the wipe-out of the Nationals in response to the NFA. Now they’ve gone full circle and become Liberal-lite.
Note to political parties trying to capture the shooting vote: any reference to status quo or upholding Australia’s gun laws won’t win you votes, unless they’re Nationals fudds.
Liberal Democrats, SFFP, Fraser Anning’s National Conservative Party and Katter’s Australian Party are the only ones with the track record and subsequently, worth voting for in this space. It’s not worth splitting the vote further.
If PHON are serious about firearm owners then they’re going about it the wrong way – the policy needs a serious rewrite. It’s better than the major parties’ but not by much at all.
You can’t claim to advocate for the working class of NSW while disarming them PHON.
Katters Australian Party has never wavered on removing the registration of long arms.-Editor
04 June 2018: Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) today welcomed Senator Fraser Anning’s announcement that he will represent regional Queenslanders under the KAP banner in the Senate. Federal KAP leader Bob Katter and Senator Anning made the announcement during a story that aired on the ABC’s 7:30 program on Monday night.
Bob Katter, KAP Leader and Federal Member for Kennedy said his affiliation with the Senator spans generations.
“It’s fantastic news. We’re tribal, both our families were from Charters Towers before there was a Charters Towers. I have known Fraser a long time.
“Fraser is about development. I walked into his office and he was working on the revised Bradfield Scheme; so we were instantly blood brothers.
“We are both patriotic and know that if the country keeps bringing in 643,000 visa entrants then we will be bankrupt and there will be no jobs for Australians. It will push people onto welfare and we need to be able to support our retirees.”
Senator Anning has been a staunch advocate for regional Queensland in the Senate since his appointment in November 2017. Senator Anning says the KAP’s vision for Queensland and Australia aligns perfectly with his own and the decision came down to giving regional Queensland the strongest voice.
”KAP represents the traditional Australian values, commitment to infrastructure development and balanced, fiscally responsible government that I have supported since being sworn in.”
“I have known Bob for almost 40 years and we have a lot in common both personally and politically. Bob is the last cabinet minister from Sir Joh’s government still in office and founded KAP to carry on the late, Sir Joh’s legacy. As an old time National, KAP was the obvious home for me.
“Thirty years after the end of the Joh era, Queensland is in terrible shape. For thirty years there has been no real infrastructure investment other than Labor vanity projects in the South East corner.”
“As a Queensland Senator I am keen to fight and campaign for federal funds to allow for balanced development throughout the state and to ensure that crazy left-wing policies are stopped or reversed. KAP share this vision and have continue to work hard for regional Queenslanders.”
In the last Queensland Parliament for example, KAP prevented the livelihood-killing extreme Green Vegetation Management Laws being passed.”
“Coming on board with KAP, I will continue the hard work that Bob, Robbie, Shane and Nick already do in making sure that regional and rural Queenslanders get a fair go.”
“When regional Queensland prospers so does the whole state.”
The KAP has a proud history of uncompromising commitment to regional Australia. Party President Shane Paulger says Senator Anning’s decision to join the KAP is a reflection of the Party’s integrity and stability.
“As a Party, we’ve walked the hard road to earn our reputation for putting regional Australia first. Fraser’s decision to join KAP goes beyond an alignment of policy objectives; it reflects the effort of all our members and staff who have built a stable organisation on shared values and principles.
“Having Fraser on board is recognition of the Party’s integrity and it undoubtedly strengthens our position as the true advocates for regional Australia”
State KAP leader and member for Traeger Robbie Katter, says KAP has been able to strengthen its position in regional Queensland after years of neglect and broken promises by other parties. He welcomes Senator Anning and says it is a huge step forward for the Party.
“Regional Queenslanders have very little reason to trust major parties. They’ve been completely duplicitous in their representation and they’ve continually shown that they put regional Queenslanders behind people in the South East.
“The National Party no longer exists after being subsumed by the Libs and there’s no difference between Labor and the Greens. The KAP wants to expand its parliamentary representation to people across all of regional Queensland, and with Fraser coming on board it is a huge step toward that.”
KAP will continue to uphold traditional Australian values and pursue significant reforms that favour all Queenslanders.
KAP will ensure that the regional centres that drive the state receive the critically needed investment in transport, water and energy infrastructure that they have missed out on for so long.
When regional and rural Queensland prospers, so does the whole state.
Author Keith Noble, of ‘Mass Murder; official killing in Tasmania’ has published the most complete record of the Port Arthur massacre scam available in the world today. Below Mr Noble gives an up-to-date analysis of the case.
In his witness statement given on 28APR1996, Peter David Crosswell (spelt Croswell in other places) states this in relation to the gunman who he saw up close in the Broad Arrow Café at the Port Arthur Historic Site: “I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” Mr. Crosswell who was wounded in that café has the reputation of being a decent person – a truth teller, not a liar. He was one of several eyewitnesses who saw the gunman and who stated that person was not Martin Bryant. Note that the only eyewitness (James Clement Laycock) who personally knew Martin Bryant BEFORE the incident clearly states in his witness statement (10MAY1996) that the gunman he saw was not Martin Bryant.
The following is an extract from the book MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014; n.23, p.388): “At least two other witnesses have said the gunman was wearing a soft type of footwear commonly referred to as runners, trainers, or sandshoes. But it gets complicated when two facts are raised: i. The alleged gunman was said to have been wearing lace-up boots before the shooting on that Sunday (see Kessarios); and, ii. The alleged gunman was said to be wearing Blundstone-type* boots during the incident, at the tollbooth specifically. (see Rabe) So how could this be? If there was only one gunman, it means he must have put on three different types of footwear and one of those times must have been inside the yellow Volvo, between the parking lot and the tollbooth. Why? To create uncertainty perhaps. Or, were there two people the subject of these different footwear sightings? (* Quality boot made by Tasmanian company Blundstone which did not make runners/sandshoes/sneakers in and prior to 1996.)”
It is this type of evidence, given by many witnesses in their statements (see extracts in the book MASS MURDER), which confirms again and again that there is so much REASONABLE DOUBT associated with the case, that only unthinking sheeple, corrupt officials, and the complicit barristers (all of whom are officers of the court) in Tasmania say otherwise. And because there are so many truthful facts which disprove the allegations of the State, the innocent and retarded (IQ66) Martin Bryant was coerced and mentally tortured for over six months after which he repeated what the convicted criminal lawyer John Avery pressured him to say – then he was locked away FOREVER WITH NO TRIAL – repeat, FOREVER WITH NO TRIAL. Note that a hearing in a courthouse or anywhere else is not a trial. And also note that scum Avery was supposed to defend Martin Bryant. But all Avery did was pressure him relentlessly to repeat Avery’s plea of guilty. The truth is, Martin Bryant never had any ethical legal representation at any time and he was unable to engage another lawyer because the State had confiscated all his assets – his money and his home. That is what you are to accept as justice in Australia. The State accused innocent Martin Bryant of so much – yet, it was unwilling (and unable) to prove one single thing against him in a sound trial conducted by an ethical judge. Martin was the doomed PATSY.
There is no hard evidence proving Martin Bryant was the gunman or one of the gunmen. For example, not a single fingerprint was ever presented as proof of Martin Bryant’s involvement in the massacre. It is known with absolute certainty from the witness statements and from a police video that the gunman handled food-related things and a tray inside the café and that he left a video camera on a café table. All these things would have been covered with his fingerprints – obviously not Martin Bryant’s or we would have heard about them. The official narrative of the Port Arthur Massacre is grossly corrupt – in the Australian vernacular, it is complete bull! free pdf copies of the 694pp. book MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition 2014), of 20 YEARS CORRUPTION, DECEPTION, LIES, of CLASSIC KANGAROO COURT CASE, and of INTERNATIONAL MEDIA RELEASE (relates to that embalmer, ex-cop, and ex-senator Stephen Parry who has confirmed – in writing – prior knowledge of the massacre) are available from email@example.com & firstname.lastname@example.org) There is no copyright on any of these documents.
Note: Now based in Austria, Mr Noble has written other books about government-sponsored murder including the disappearance of Peter Falconio near Barrow Creek in the Northern Territory in 2001. Bradley Murdoch was eventually convicted of Falconio’s murder. Keith Noble says the NT police grabbed Murdoch after a hopelessly compromised and bungled investigation including a dodgy statement from girlfriend Joanna Lees then charged him for the murder without ever finding a body.
by investigative journalist and editor-at-large Gil Hanrahan
The ABC has been caught out acting as an agent of government perpetuating the lies and terrible media misinformation that surrounds the Port Arthur massacre where 35 people allegedly were killed by a lone shooter, Martin Bryant.
For 22 years the ABC and other mainstream media have been paramount in manipulating the true story of Port Arthur, how a drill turned into a massacre which has been covered up at the highest levels of government.
This week the Tasmania Liberal Party Government, in election mode, announced it will free up the stringent provisions of the state’s firearms laws enacted by all states after the Port Arthur event in 1996.
The Liberals have proposed changes to gun laws which would give farm workers and sporting shooters greater access to category C weapons, including pump-action shotguns, self-loading rifles and silencers.
The usual cries of horror by the media and now a survivor of the shooting, are screaming foul that the laws should not be tampered with and left alone.
The excerpt below from an ABC news transcript released on March 2, 2018, clearly shows how a manipulative journalist, Fiona Blackwood, has inferred Port Arthur victim Peter Croswell was shot by Martin Bryant.
“…survivor Peter Crosswell said he would be devastated if Tasmania’s gun laws were weakened in any way.
Mr Crosswell was shot by Martin Bryant while lying on the ground trying to protect two women.
He was one of the few people to survive the shooting massacre inside the Broad Arrow Cafe at the convict-era tourism site at Port Arthur in 1996, later being awarded a bravery medal for his actions.
“After Port Arthur, there was a lot of work put in by a lot of people, a lot of people were in a great deal of pain then, to get these gun laws in place,” Mr Croswell said….”
Nowhere in the ABC article was Mr Croswell directly quoted as saying Martin Bryant shot him.
Thanks to expatriate Australian, now Austrian-based investigative journalist and author Keith Noble, his hallmark work MASS MURDER: Official Killing in Tasmania, Australia (2nd edition; 2014) reveals a great deal about the massacre the Federal Government would not like published in the news media.
Indeed on April 28,1996, the same day he was shot Mr Croswell was shown a number of photos including one of Martin Bryant and in his statement told police:
WITNESS: CROSSWELL, Peter David
DATE: 28 April 1996 (same day as incident)
CONCERNS: “At this point a male person stood up. He yelled out something like ‘No No Not Here.’ I then saw the gunman shoot this guy in the head.” &
“I didn’t move but I could see his sandshoes across the floor.” &“I then saw a yellow car of some description leave the car park.”
WITNESS: CROSSWELL, Peter David
DATE: 1 July 1996 (63 days after incident)
CONCERNS: “…long shoulder length blonde hair.” &
“I do however remember that he was carrying a long bag when he came into the restaurant. The bag appeared to be heavy.” &
“I have been shown a photograph identification board by Detective GHEDINI which consisted of thirty (30) photo graphs of male persons. I am unable to identify any of these males as being responsible for the shootings in side the Broad Arrow Café.”
A footnote by author Keith Noble identifies the man who stood up in the Broad Arrow café when the shooting started:
“This witness(Peter Crosswell) was wounded inside the café. To his credit and that of witnesses Pamelia (sic) Law and Thelma Walker who were with Crosswell, none of them identified Martin Bryant as the gunman. It would have been easy for them to say it was Martin. They all saw the gunman, but they all stated the truth – they did not see Martin Bryant. Thank you. The person this witness saw get shot inside the cafe, the person who called out “No No Not Here,” is believed to be Anthony Nightingale, a suspected intelligence agent. (see INDEX)”
The news clip from ABC archives shows Mr Croswell in hospital, but his narrative does not mention Martin Bryant.
This is the depth of depravity into which our mainstream media will prostitute themselves to keep the real truth from the public.
We could make excuses for the ABC journalist as she would have been a young girl at the time of Port Arthur, however she was either under instruction or had not bothered to do any basic research about the events of that fateful day at one of Tasmania’s iconic convict outposts.
NOTE: Cairns News does not in any way suggest Peter David Croswell is involved in a cover-up of the actual events at Port Arthur, then or now. Major amendments to Australia’s costly, unworkable and ineffective gun laws are long overdue consequently the Cairns News editorial board wishes the Tasmania Liberal Party all the best for the election and sincerely hopes it can retain government. Read our archives for more in-depth investigations of this tragic event. There you will discover a photograph and the names of the real shooters, as well as the true reason why the President of the Australian senate was forced to quit Parliament last year.

National Firearms Amnesty a waste of resources
The results of the amnesty were nothing out of the box with not many semi-auto and automatic firearms handed in.
Of the overall 57,324 recorded, one third were destroyed and the balance was registered in various states and returned to the owners.
As we have stated many times in the past it is a fallacy to claim registered guns help solve crime. They don’t and there are no authentic studies or figures to say this helps to track gun crime.
There are probably over 1.5 million .22 calibre rifles registered across the nation and another 200,000 that are not registered. How does this make the unregistered guns illegal?
Thousands of unregistered motor vehicles sit in yards and paddocks across Australia. Does that make them illegal?
People have been conditioned into thinking because a firearm sits in a cupboard for years waiting for a need on a rainy day then these guns are illegal?
Wakey wakey they are no more illegal than the cars even if we had legitimate government.
Nearly 2900 handguns were handed in plus a nice little rocket launcher, recovered from a dump, no doubt having its origins with army ordinance. It found its way to the crusher.
Only 2500 semi-automatic firearms were handed in.
New South Wales received the highest number of firearms at 24,831, followed by Queensland on 16,375. Victorians handed in 9,175 guns.
Federal Minister for Law Enforcement Angus Taylor said the weapons were no longer on the “grey market”, which refers to guns that are not registered and not in the hands of criminals.
This Minister has no idea what he is talking about. He thinks criminals might get their hands on these guns. There would be none to hand in if this were the case.
You only made more criminals out of law abiding citizens who foolishly handed them in Mr Taylor.
When these gun owners became ‘licenced’ all of their personal details were entered into the federal Crim Trac records along with tens of thousands of real criminals who, incidentally, have not handed in their guns.
So-called government is criminally stupid.
Senator David Leyonhjelm, an avid shooter and gun advocate, does not think it has achieved much at all.
“We know it makes no difference to anything that really matters,” Senator Leyonhjelm said.
“The Government says its taking guns off the street. The guns that it gets in an amnesty were never on the street. They’re grandpa’s old guns. They were in the back of a cupboard or wardrobe in a ceiling somewhere. They were never going to be used in a crime.”
These ancient guns were handed in. It is impossible to source ammo for any of these antique guns.

Turnbull well knows Australians will not tolerate any more harsh gun laws. He is keeping out of the US situation. For once a smart move in spite of the horrible school shootings.

Malcolm Turncoat says Australian gun laws work. He is such an idiot he has no idea armed crime escalated dramatically after we lost our guns in 1997 and began the arduous and often inaccurate task of individual gun registration. Industry estimated there were more than 1 million Chinese SKK and SKS semi auto 7.62x39mm assault rifles imported into Australia between the early 80’s and the 90’s. In 1997, although the figures were not officially released, industry was able to determine that approximately 19,000 military semi-auto rifles were handed in across the country, which includes SKK’s. There is much anecdotal evidence over the years to suggest the remainder of these firearms went underground. However a number reportedly went to Papua New Guinea in the guns for drugs trade, some went with Air America (CIA) from Australian airports to Ibero Americas as cargo with their drugs.
Many thousands have been buried or securely stashed away across Australia. Anecdotal evidence would suggest these SKK’s and any other secreted guns will re-appear when corporate government finally collapses(not far away) or should Indonesia get any ideas of territorial expansion to the south.
Cairns News has sent Donald Trump a brief about the Port Arthur scam, which eerily, has striking, parallels to the last week’s Florida school shootings. Student eye-witnesses reported at least two shooters and one girl interviewed by local television said there were three shooters and that she walked down a corridor when evacuating the school with the alleged shooter Nicholas Cruz, who did not have any guns with him.
Make what you like from these interviews but the student narrative is diametrically opposed to the official version. Even Trump in his first tweet was wary of crisis actors who follow these alleged massacres from site to site.
Australians were disarmed on a terrible lie, but most Yanks and the gutsy National Rifle Association will never fall for it. What a crying shame we don’t have any shooters’ representative bodies in Australia with any guts at all! Only the Shooters and Fishermens political party comes close but has backed away on gun registration.
Katters Australian Party has not wavered over the past five years in its fight to dismantle individual firearm registration, which it says is too costly, somewhat inaccurate and ineffective and ties up too many operational police officers.
Footnote: We apologise we used the Queensland figure of 4000 handed in instead of the 19,000 handed in nationally.
