NSW gun law changes close submissions Monday 31 July

                  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The Subordinate Legislation Act 1989 provides that regulations are to be automatically repealed five years after commencement. The repeal of the Firearms Regulation 2006 (FR) has been previously postponed and is now due to be repealed on 1 September 2017 unless remade.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).

Illegal firearms found in the hands of criminals

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.
