Gun Control Australia’s recent media blitz in the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy to attempt to push for new laws has come under scrutiny.
If you’ve had the unfortunate experience of reading through Philip Alpers’ recent “report”, in which some real Olympics-grade mental gymnastics has been performed to attempt to blame lax enforcement of the National Firearms Agreement at the state level on an already non-legally binding agreement, you might dig in a little deeper and find this:
Now, this may not seem like much and indeed be nothing, but it begs the question: Were Gun Control Australia waiting for another tragedy to happen before releasing the report?
Why wait until another Las Vegas happened on October 1st? Why not release the report publicly as soon as it was ready? The only other possible explanation was the end of the national firearm amnesty, however, that was merely a whimper among the chest beating and posturing from the Australian media last week.
All we can say is, leopards don’t change their spots. And given now they are trying to target the Pardus our money is on a firm “yes’ to the original question.
This is an identical play to John Howard’s 1996 stunt where he admitted having the National Firearms Agreement, literally a copy and paste job from the 1991 Keating Government proposals, ready to go and low and behold, Port Arthur happened.
It’s also identical to the 12-month campaign Gun Control Australia led in the prelude to the Adler ban, hoping to capitalise on the 20th anniversary of the Port Arthur Massacre and we all saw what happened there. We’re surprised there was no incident during that whole affair.
And given the level of political opportunism being taken over the Las Vegas shooting by GCA, the AMA and AMF calling for centralised storage, the QLD Labor Govt forcing through the lever action reclassification and Globalist Mal using it to try for facial recognition and a data grab, it’s not at all surprising.
Not as surprising as shotguns being able to take AR15 ammunition though.
Which begs the question
Why don’t our pro gun parties and groups have a press release ready for the same thing?
All law abiding shooters condemn this tragedy and remind policy makers that we did not do it. This horrific crime was done with illegal weapons and we reject any further discrimination against the law Abiding. New Zealand proves the 1996 restrictions were not necessary and we call for more mental health funding to help the mentally I’ll, alongside better customs and border control to stop the import of illegal drugs and firearms.
