A civilian in Cairns carrying a military-styled replica rifle was detained after a dumb member of the public complained to police this week.
The officers charged the man for carrying a replica in public although it was inoperable and not a real firearm.
What would today’s paramilitary police have done 40 years ago when Army cadets between the ages of 14 and 18 carried home from their school units SMLE .303 rifles that could be fired if the cadet had any ammo.
I remember when I was at school in the army cadets and was a member of the shooting team. In the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s there was no paranoia about guns as we have now.
I would carry home a SMLE .303 from the school armoury on the bus ready to go on bivouac for the weekend at Greenbank or Canungra army training reserves.
People remembered then it was guns that kept the Japanese army from invading the north through New Guinea. The mischievous media today aided by the Labor and Liberal parties have demonised guns to the extent that they make it a great big deal if a house is raided and guns are found. Guns take precedent over dangerous drugs according to the media.
We can thank God there are still a few million unregistered guns in existence around the country because the only thing separating runaway government and citizens is guns.
When the trouble starts I would not like to be a member of the media or ALP or Liberal politician.
Has any Labor politician ever seen a gun fire of its own volition? No and they never will. It takes two to tango Mrs Premier.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have them!

Orora Monroe tells her story about hearing gunshots at the casino in Planet Hollywood where she was visiting from Michigan. She says she made this video in the interest of offering data to help the people discover of who was behind the attacks in Las Vegas and the purpose of the attacks.
Besides Mandalay Bay and Harvest 91, there are eyewitness reports of gunshots fired on the night of October 1st and/or casualties seen at several other venues on the Las Vegas Strip including Hooters, Tropicana, New York New York, Bellagio, Caesar’s Palace and the Aria.
Monroe says, “The information at this point I believe is out here for everyone and for people to know that we are being lied to and people to know that the mainstream media is assisting in that lying for whatever reason and above all, that there are people in our country who are willing to do things for their own selfish reasons and they do not care who they hurt in the process.
“I think that’s the main thing that all of us should know and realize by now. I’m sure that most of us already know this…but the scale of the damage is getting larger, okay and and more detrimental…
“Others are choosing to do certain things in this country and regular people don’t matter at all…I mean, I believe that people were killed that evening. I know people were hurt but whomever did this and whomever is assisting after the fact in covering up who did this doesn’t care…one bit about the average person.”
