“People think that a liar gains a victory over his victim. What I’ve learned is that a lie is an act of self-abdication, because one surrenders one’s reality to the person to whom one lies, making that person one’s master, condemning oneself from then on to faking the sort of reality that person’s view requires to be faked…The man who lies to the world, is the world’s slave from then on…There are no white lies, there is only the blackest of destruction, and a white lie is the blackest of all.”    Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
We may be forgiven for believing that a Liberal/National Government would be more honest than a Labour Party Government as with Labour we were so used to lies, we expected it. When 18 months ago the Lib/Nat party promised a 20 % reduction in paperwork law abiding shooters, as the section of our community with the greatest burden imposed on them, were justified in expecting some improvements. When they were overwhelmingly swept into office, shooters were promised a Ministers Advisory Panel that would review all of the legislative burden imposed on us. We had an Amnesty and we are told that 19,000 firearms were placed on the State register to shooters licences without a Permit to Acquire.

Some of the museum pieces that unfortunately were handed to Police Stations and were not able to go on a Shooters Licence.

Some of the museum pieces that unfortunately were handed to Police Stations and were not able to go on a Shooters Licence.

In April this year, I pointed out to the Minister on the ABC radio if they can handle that 19000 without PTAs, without even any changes to the legislation, why cannot it not continue under the same legislative provisions.  He did not disagree and volunteered to put the point to the Ministers Advisory Panel. Hundreds of the 7000 that receive this bulletin wrote to the Minister of Police Mr Dempsey and made submissions and asked questions why after 19000 firearm had been registered without PTAs that the system should be continued, saving the Shooter $34.00 every time he needed to swap or buy a firearm. I wrote four letters and had no direct response
“When truth is replaced by silence, the silence is a lie.”  Yevgeny Yevtushenko
My local member of parliament Mr David Gibson wrote on my behalf and received an answer, but the Minister chose to lie to him as well as to me and hundreds of others. Besides his flim flam points avoiding at all costs the direct questions he stated to Mr Gibson, “In saying that, I have referred your suggestion to my Weapons Advisory panel for their consideration”. That was on the 3rd of July 2013. Mr Gibson believing Minister Dempsey wrote to me and stated, “I understand that your suggestion has now been referred to the Weapons Advisory Panel for their consideration”. This sort of letter has been repeated and sent by the Minister and his Chief of Staff David Crossen who wrote to one of our tireless letter writers and stated, “In saying that, I have referred your suggestion to the Minister Weapons Advisory Panel for their consideration.” That was on the 24th June 2012. This week I spoke to several members of the advisory panel and they all told me that they  had received no correspondence, or instruction on these points. If the panel members has not read this bulletin they have no knowledge of the points raised on the Amnesty which 19000 firearms were registered to the licence holders due to the provision in the Weapons Act 1990 of  Division 2,  Acquisition, sale and disposal of weapons

35 Acquisition of weapons

(1) A person may acquire a weapon only if—

(c) the person acquires the weapon under other lawful authority, justification or excuse.

This provision in this section, made the registering and acquisition of those 19000 firearms to shooters licences possible, as the lawful authority is the licence. Yes, there are provisions for a PTA, but when the person applies for a licence, in a certain category the authorised officer, makes a decision to approve that the applicant has that genuine need and once approving that licence, the Act is satisfied. Provision 35 ( c)  also allows the Dealer to exchange a firearm for warranty, or a repair. Apparently one dealer in the State of Queensland has special permission as a test, to take a firearm off a customer, and sell him another in the same calibre, without a PTA. Again Section 35 ( c) would apply. If it applies to one dealer, why cannot it apply to every dealer?
This would allow those hundred of staff in Weapons Licencing to retire and go home to their families. Up to date,  answers from the Minister and his Chief of Staff have omitted to explain , “the person acquires the weapon under other lawful authority, justification or excuse.” Which allows the Dealer to sell or dispose of a firearm without a PTA and admit that was the provision used during the Amnesty. The Minister Office has lied by saying this was a provision of the amnesty and of course that is not in the Act at all. As well as lying to the law abiding shooter of Queensland they have also lied to Members of Parliament who have written on behalf of their constituents.

“A truth that’s told with bad intent Beats all the lies you can invent.”  William Blake, Auguries of Innocence.
The next step of this campaign, ‘to remove the PTA imposition on licenced shooters’, and as we now know that writing to our Minister of Police only produces LIES, so copy the lies, the answers sent to you by the Ministers Office and send them to your local member and ask him to investigate on your behalf. Ask him three questions,

1) Is section 35 ( c) “the person acquires the weapon under other lawful authority, justification or excuse.” the law that can be applied in Queensland to acquire a firearm, or not?
If it is, it makes the Permits to Acquire a superfluous fund raiser for the QPS.  
2) Has at the date of the 25th September the Minister of Police or his Chief of Staff referred this point to the Ministers Advisory Panel? If not he has lied to Members of Parliament and the Public.
3) Why should we vote for our local representative, if our local representative do not raise these ‘Ministers responses’ that lie to their constituents, in open parliament?
Tell them that if  we can read it in Hansard and know that our elected representatives is representing licensed shooters, exposing these lies, then they will get our vote and if not they won’t. You can find his or her email, fax mail address in this list, http://www.qgd.qld.gov.au/legislative_assembly.html#addresses  , in fact if you feel disposed send them all one.

“It’s a week since I received a copy of “Range Officers Hand Book” and since that time I am nearly at the half way mark. I’m amazed at the at the number of subjects you have covered making it one of the most informative books to be added to my collection. It must have taken you a considerable amount of time and experience to publish the book with information not available in other popular Gunsmith manuals. I would recommend the book to “Range Officers” and anyone interested in the sport of target shooting and hunting.” Regards Gene M Cornford P.O.Box 288, Kaeo 0448 N.Z. Firearms Gunsmith, Dip M.G.S +Member of American Gunsmithing  Assoc.

History does not entrust the care of Freedom to the weak, or timid, D.D. Eisenhower.

In my past lives, as Grenadier Guard, a Prison Guard, a Mechanical Engineer I was also a motor bike enthusiast British Bikes from the 1950 and 60s, so I have no axe to grind at all at Bikies, I also was thrilled by the patriotic two million bikers ride to Washington, and wish something similar could happen here. Why I am raising this is that we shooters are suffering from what the media are calling Bikers Gangs shooting in Sydney and now the Gold Coast. That allows the Anti Gunners to beat the drum and they dance around the drum in a frenzy licking their lips on the tasty entrails of the dead and wounded washing themselves in blood blaming the evil firearm. They remind me of witches of Macbeth, hubble bubble toil and trouble.  They have the ability to drum up a story for the media which the media repeats like a repetitive learning service, serving the public like Dr Pavlov feeds his dogs. Feed them rubbish, and ring the bell, then no food, and then just ring the bell and measure the salivating response from Gun Control Australia, all five of them.

I am not cross with bikkies, like all of us there will be good and bad, but I am cross with the media as they have been miss informing us on this issue. Yes in truth a Drugs and Crime, turf war, but who are these people? Apparently the violence is between rival Islamic Gangs, such as Finks, and the Soldiers of Islam, Brothers of Islam versus the next Muslim gang. Don’t know which way around but the same  Sunnies verses Sheites, problem that they have brought with them to Australia. “’Behead all those who insult the Prophet”, on a poster at a recent Sydney Demonstration. The Sunnis and Shi’ites may not have much love for each other, but they seem to have even less for the country which feeds them.  People are starting to notice that in greater numbers.


After the recent eruption of violence at Sydney Airport between gang members, Sydneysiders, people on the spot, came to understand that people like Mick Hawi, leader of the Comancheros, had an Islamic background and that many of the group he led did too. This was the first time that some people had ever heard of this.  The rest of Australia, are still blaming bikkies. Now, it turns out that disaffected Muslim youth are feeding into the bikie gangs and leaving their stamp on them . According to a Daily Telegraph report, it is Middle Eastern youth who are being particularly recruited and injecting a new note of terror into what was previously just a counter cultural way of life. Senior police sources revealed they are extremely concerned about the emergence of what they call the Muslim “feeder” gangs. Youths of Middle Eastern background have become easy pickings for bikie gangs seeking to boost numbers to gain supremacy over rival gangs. Members of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement have even dropped the Koran from their colours, replacing it with a Harley-Davidson logo. The 600-strong M.B.M. , the emblem of which features two crossed swords, is made up of young, predominantly Shi’a Muslims from Sydney’s southwest. Similar to the Comanchero bikie gang whose boss, Mahmoud “Mick” Hawi, is a Shi’ite. It is not just a matter of bikie gang against bikie gang but also one of Sunnis against Shi’ites and some or all of them against the ‘skips’, the more Aussie Aussies. Racism was becoming a growing factor in the bikie feuds, according to sources. “There’s Notorious and Commanchero against the Hells Angels, who they call the skips, the whiteys,” a source said. Ten years ago the club members were almost 100% white anglo saxons, but now they are almost 100% Lebanese Muslims. I have no idea how it happened and no idea where the original (Caucasian) members have gone.

Vince Focarelli was the leader of a Street Gang called the New Boys, but he recently gained control of the Comancheros bikie gang, and in a tapped telephone call to another Comanchero in prison, he discussed plans to rebuild the New Boys as a bikie gang: Quote “I’ll tell you something now, no one is stepping one foot into this brotherhood without having any intentions of converting to Islam,” Focarelli said on January 16. “That is a one billion, I’m telling ya, a billion per cent now, that’s it. “I don’t care if I’m stuck with ten (members) for the rest of my life – then so be it, okay.” http://www.adelaiden…3-1226367003369

So shooters are being put into the target, and the politically correct mainstream media will not come out and identify these shootings as a racial/ religious  war.  Shooters are just the meat in the sandwich again. Ron Owen.
