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The Subordinate Legislation Act 1989 provides that regulations are to be automatically repealed five years after commencement. The repeal of the Firearms Regulation 2006 (FR) has been previously postponed and is now due to be repealed on 1 September 2017 unless remade.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

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.

Long rifle registration abolished by Canadian Government

Canadian crime rate hits lowest level in 40 years as Tories enact harsh new policies

OTTAWA — New figures show Canada’s crime rate dipped to its lowest level in 40 years last year, the very year the federal government enacted some of its harshest tough-on-crime policies.

Just under two million criminal incidents were reported to police in 2012, about 36,000 fewer than the previous year, according to a Canadian Centre for Justice Statistics study on police-reported crime.

The decline is primarily attributed to decreases in non-violent crimes. In fact, 2012 marked the ninth consecutive year that both the volume and severity of crime was down.

According to the study, 543 homicides were reported across the country, 55 fewer than in 2011. Youth crime was also down.

“As a result, the homicide rate fell to its lowest level since 1966,” the report concluded.

“However, 11 more attempted murders and 21 more other offences causing death were reported in 2012 than in 2011.”

Sexual offences against children, extortion, violent firearm offences and non-homicide offences causing death were among a handful violent crimes that increased

The number of terrorism-related offences, identity fraud incidents and arsons also rose last year.

Overall crime rates dipped in most provinces with the exception of New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Crime rates increased in the territories.

However, 11 more attempted murders and 21 more other offences causing death were reported in 2012 than in 2011

As for major cities, Kelowna, B.C., and Regina recorded the highest police reported crime rates, while Toronto and Quebec reported the lowest. The most violent cities were Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Thunder Bay, which also had the highest homicide rate.

Although crime rates have been falling for years, the federal government passed a controversial omnibus crime bill early last year. It set a number of mandatory minimum penalties for drug trafficking and sex crimes against children and got tough on pot producers, young offenders, Canadians imprisoned abroad seeking a transfer to a Canadian institution and ex-cons seeking a pardon.

The government also scrapped the controversial long gun registry last year.

Snooping bureaucrats had better watch their backs

This shooting lies on the head of Bob Carr and the former Howard Government

by Robert J Lee

Ratbag Greens are Destroying AustraliaIt had to happen sooner or later. A prying government official was shot dead on private property by an angry landowner yesterday near Moree in the north of New South Wales.

He was found on farmland assessing the actual number of trees that allegedly had been ‘illegally’ cleared by dryland wheat farmer, Ian Turnbull, aged 79.

The now deceased Environment Department employee, aged 51, had pushed Mr Turnbull too far.

A nearby neighbour told Cairns News soon after the shooting that Ian Turnbull was well respected in the community but had become embroiled in a long-running dispute with the State Government over vegetation management laws.

The neighbour said the elderly farmer “had enough” and was in effect forced into a corner because he was unable to clear his land to protect his livelihood.

Mr Turnbull has been taken into custody by police and will appear in court in September.

This festering sore infecting all farmland in the nation has been allowed to creep through the agriculture industry since former Liberal Prime Minister John Howard forced the Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 onto the states.

Labor state governments had a ball. They amended their environment acts allowing their socialist regimes to halt forthwith any new agricultural development or vegetation management under the guise of biodiversity protection.

The ALP/Green nexus had a win of nuclear proportions, prosecuting farmers for the most minor infringement of their native vegetation statutes. Their victory in sterilising farmland was delivered to them by a supposedly conservative Liberal National Party Government.

The Queensland socialists had waited for years to take revenge on the National Party’s token squattocracy.

The owner of one of Queensland’s largest family run cattle operations, the late Graham Acton was fined $110,000 for allegedly clearing brigalow regrowth without a permit.

Hundreds of others were mercilessly hounded by ‘compliance officers,’ usually disgraced, former police officers whose bent was to trespass on private land and apply entrapment to catch hapless primary producers whose only indiscretion was to protect their property by clearing regrowth and noxious woody weeds.

Reminiscent of scenes of a Gestapo interrogation in Nazi Germany, a refusal by a landowner or any person present on the property to answer questions from these thugs resulted in immediate arrest and prosecution.

This is the modus operandi of a Labor Government and the dumbed-down city populace of the Sunshine State want to elect another bunch of international socialists?

It should be noted the present Liberal National Party Government disbanded the ‘tree police’ in 2013.

Bob Carr the communist

Bob CarrVegetation laws introduced by the Carr Government in NSW, initially in 1995 and tightened up after the 1999 state election, stymied rural production for a decade and continue to thwart development to this day.

Former NSW Labor Premier and Federal Foreign Affairs Minister, Bob Carr

This ABC radio interview at SOS-NEWS with Bob Carr in 1997, after making amendments to the environment act, gave credence to cries of communism by farmers:

 

“We protected native vegetation and gave John Howard the right to boast about how Australia was protecting its Greenhouse targets.

“There are restrictions on private property rights. You stick a right to private property in your Constitution then you have a conservative court saying no you can’t place those restrictions on private landholders.

“Leave it to the parliament, leave it to a free society don’t congeal it in a final constitutional statute. Nobody can be deprived of their property arbitrarily, there must be compensation paid.

“Well that’s an invitation for a conservative leaning court to strike down, for example the measures that are protecting native vegetation on private farmlands.

“No government should pay compensation to farmers when they intervene to say you can no longer rip out your vegetation,” Carr stated.

There have been no moves to date by the Liberal Party Government in NSW to relax these laws.

The Liberal Party traditionally hates firearms. NSW farmers are now predicting their guns will go.

For our international readers, “welcome to Australia today.”
