Yeh, this looks real impartial and objective:
The very fact that the ABC has wheeled out fake professor Philip Alpers for comment instantly undermines the ABC’s credibility, not that it has much these days anyway.
We’ll reserve judgment until we’ve seen this in it’s entirety but if the grab is anything to go by, then it’s going to be more of the same ABC formula. That being, anti-firearm with lip service to a few pro-gun opinions. The premise also seems to be the usual confected outrage re: how dare the million plus Australians who own firearms be represented politically?
The main reason this is being aired is an attack against the Flick’Em campaign and Bob Katter for their campaigns at the Queensland election. Put simply, the majors are scared of the rising minor party and firearm owner vote.
Michelle Fernando seems to be the token victim they’ve dragged out. Access to guns is “so casual” hey Michelle? Spoken like someone who has no idea about the process involved. Illegally yes, legally no.
