E Petitions to Parliament that Urgently need your attention.
We want to put forward a strong number of people from our point of view please take a minute to sign these properly endorsed Petitions. These are not ‘Change’ that is going to send you a myriad of adverts. This is the Queensland Parliaments site. If we ask for nothing we will receive nothing please give them a vote.
Corella Range Complex for Gympie
Queensland residents draws to the attention of the House a 24 years-old promise to replace the Victory Range Gympie. The 1999 “Comino Report” (State Government Rifle Range Advisory Panel) recommended that land, in Corella SF700, be excised from the Curra State Forest to establish a regional shooting complex. Due to strong community support and a 50% annual increase in shooting licence applications the Cooloola Range Complex Association was formed with assistance from local Councils. It lodged a submission to the state government in 2003. Two subsequent “Difficult to Locate Sports” reports identified the need for a new shooting range complex at the Corella SF700 site with Queensland Police approving the range safety templates. In 2014, the Minister for Sport, Steve Dickson, gave an “Agreement in Principle” to revocation of the land, with the proviso of answering four questions, subsequently answered in the 2015 Ross Planning Feasibility report. Minister Steven Miles claims they will honour the “Agreement in Principle” but has imposed a ‘five to one’ land swap, (or equivalent in money) despite this requirement being previously waived. The requirement for a ‘five to one’ land swap, (or equivalent in money) was not contemplated in the original agreement and such an onerous requirement is denying the Gympie region of the economic and social benefits of this new facility.
Your petitioners therefore request the House to immediately excise Corella SF700 from the Curra State Forest, or issue a lease to the local council for a sporting shooters range complex.
The next one is in the same list on the parleiamentry petitions page.
Category D for Sporting Shooters.
Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House Category D firearms that are used in international sporting shooter events are restricted to professional shooters and do not include individuals that would use such firearms in legitimate and organised club shooting events.
Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to make Category D weapons available to sporting shooters to be owned, stored and operated by approved individuals to compete in club organised competitions. It is proposed that all individuals approved to own a Category D firearm and in the possession of Category D firearms for the purpose of sports shooting will keep and maintain a year to year participation record, as well as follow all licencing rules and requirements that allow sporting shooters to own, store and operate Category H firearms through their respective clubs, to stay compliant with Queensland weaponry requirements.

Thoughts For The Week.
The eternal war between the Individual and the State ebbs and flows with the same regularity as the oceans tide. Last week, on 23rd June (Britains Independence Day) the individuals stood up and voted to break away from the tyranny of the European Parliament. The little guys won, the smaller more independent parties finally beat the media/bank/big political party machine. Lets hope its not a one off.
We are living in a vary exciting time, due to many factors, one large one being the internet, facebook and twitter the individual are competing with mass media. Mass media, due to its reduction in advertising revenue is in decline, not quite like a falling star, but faster than anyone could have envisaged five years ago. The Trump phenomena is still tied to big party Republicans politics, but the died in the wool Republicans hate him, as he is financially & morally independent of them all. They cannot control him and he has successfully used his ‘one liners’ to set up the main stream media to rail against him, knowing that his ‘one liners’ are irrefutable to the common man and woman, ‘the individuals’. We are the people who are fed up, with Tweedle Dee, Tweedle Dummer politics, we will be the people who cause the revival of individual power. No longer are we going to be the meat in the sandwich with left wing buying votes for immigrants and right wing importing cheap labour, at the cost of higher GST to pay the ‘fly in’ welfare bill. Australia still needs a Nigel Farage UKIP, or a Trump to unify the middle ground, but as we go to the poll next Saturday we have for the first time lots of choices, Martin Turnbull (turncoat) who is very acceptable to all the major bankers like Goldman Sachs and Bill Shorten who is acceptable to left wing unions, both are smiling as they re-arrange the deck chairs on the Titanic, just hours before it hits the iceberg. Both are glancing forwards to see the Independent imminent iceberg slowly but surely approaching. Look hard the smiles are only a façade to cover their fear.
We Should All Know Who To Vote For. Have you Contacted your Local Candidates Yet.
Lots of readers, of this Bulletin have contacted me asking for advice on who to vote for, some have asked me to print a suggested ballot paper out, but they do not realise that this humble message goes to 10,000 shooters in ever State and electorate in Australia, even Tasmania, as there are so many variations it is impossible and would only confuse the issue.
So to simplify, just keep this loud and clear in your minds and please pass this on to all of your friends and families. All major parties, in all states are fully aware and concerned about the growing resentment against them by Australia’s middle ground, added to this is there concern that the 2 million licensed shooters in Australia which equated to 15 % of the voting public is a larger factor than the traditional middle ground swinging voters.
This Has Held Back The New National Firearm Agreement.
Twice this past year the Police Ministers from every State have met with the Commonwealth Justice Minister and they have adjourned the decision on a new altered NFA. The Commonwealth Government has refused FOI requests from Dr Samara McPhedran, (Senior Research Fellow at Griffith University’s Violence Research and Prevention Program,) submitted a FOI in March 2016 to access the documents mentioned in a News.com.au article that the government has been circulating since November 2015. The FOI request was denied by Stephen Bouwhuis, Assistant Secretary at the Attorney-General’s Department.
Mr Bouwhuis confirmed the document existed, however refused to disclose it. He said in a letter to McPhedran, “I do not consider that it would be in the public interest to disclose this document”.
“The information contained in the document was communicated to the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department by or on behalf of state or territory governments on a confidential basis, for the purposes of discussions about the proposed agreement,” he said in the letter.
“Following consultations with the relevant state or territory government agencies, a majority of agencies objected to the disclosure of the document on the basis that it would disclose information provided to the Commonwealth in confidence.”
Blind Freddy can understand from Stephen Bouwhuis statement that the major parties have a bad plan for us, that they don’t want to announce before the election because they fear a huge backlash at the ballot box from the shooting community. Even the process is obviously corrupt as it is a case of ‘Caesar judging Caesar’, the Justice Department runs the COAG meetings and the FDA and it also controls all Freedom of Information requests. So its no surprise that Caesar won’t allow us to see the document.
If the major parties have a huge cut in there vote percentages they will not have the guts to rip a new FDA into the Australian shooters. On the other hand if one of them has a huge majority we can dig a big hole and get ready to bury your tears. So no one has an excuse, so do your duty vote against the big four.
Vote instead for the Shooters Party, or Liberal Democrats, (Senator David Leyonhjelm) or Katters Party, or One Nation, or Liberal Alliance, or any sympathetic Independent. We all should be on the telephone, or on the email asking all of these parties, even our traditional enemies, Liberal Labour, Nationals and the Greens what improvements are they going to make for licenced shooters, don’t be discouraged by the long silence as every time they are asked and answer in a negative, or lie, they know they are losing votes, the bad guys are not known for their silence, they will never publically support us, but they will complain to their party henchmen and blame their losses on the shooters, so please get motivated and annoy them at this crucial time. They won’t listen again, like this for four years.
History of Treason in Parliament.
Many shooters have emailed in references to Section 44 of the Commonwealth Constitution and asked why we have Muslims in parliament who give their Allegiance and Adherence to a foreign power, the political orientation of Islam when section 44 states,
44. Any person who-
(i.) Is under any acknowledgment of allegiance, obedience, or adherence to a foreign power,
How can they honestly take the Oath of Allegiance?
I, A.B., do swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Her heirs and successors according to law. SO HELP ME GOD!
These issues of ‘Allegiance’ are the product of the Bill of Rights and were codified there in the Oath of Allegiance followed by,
“That the said Lords Spirituall and Temporall and Commons being the two Houses of Parlyament should continue to sitt and with their Majesties Royall Concurrence make effectuall Provision for the Setlement of the Religion Lawes and Liberties of this Kingdome soe that the same for the future might not be in danger againe of being subverted. That noe Forreigne Prince Person Prelate, State or Potentate hath or ought to have any Jurisdiction Power Superiority Preeminence or Authoritie Ecclesiasticall or Spirituall within this Realme Soe helpe me God.”
As you can see the problem that they were addressing was very similar to what we now face in all countries of Western civilisation. Infiltration and subversion from leaders whose real interest is in a religious ideology that has its own separate political agenda to Australia. In the days when the Bill or Rights was written it was ‘Popery’ and today it is Islam. That document the Bill of Rights is also relevant to shooter in Australia due to its other provisions,
“Disarming Protestants, &c.
By causing severall good Subjects being Protestants to be disarmed at the same time when Papists were both Armed and Imployed contrary to Law.”
That the Subjects which are Protestants may have Arms for their Defence suitable to their Conditions and as allowed by Law.
That document is also our Bill of Rights and it is the Bill of Rights that the Americans copied into their Bill of Rights which are included as amendments to their Constitution and in our case are acknowledged under the Coronation Oath which every Monarch submits to. As power of assent to all laws flows from the Crown the Governors and Governor Generals should not give assent to laws that are in breach of those Constitutional documents such as the Bill of Rights and Magna Carta that limit the Crown powers.
So why won’t our Parliament disqualify the Muslim members of parliament, why won’t our Parliamentary members uphold the provisions of the Bill of Rights? Same reasons for both problems. Just look at the next provision in our Commonwealth Constitution Section 45.
“Vacancy on happening of disqualification.
45. If a senator or member of the House of Representatives-
(i.) Becomes subject to any of the disabilities mentioned in the last preceding section: or
(iii.) Directly or indirectly takes or agrees to take any fee or honorarium for services rendered to the Commonwealth, or for services rendered in the Parliament to any person or State:his place shall thereupon become vacant.”
As all party politicians take an honorarium and are paid election expenses after pre-selection by a political party, which is paid to them on the basis that they render a service to the Party once they are elected, they should all be Disqualified. This provision was thoughtfully placed in the Constitution by our founding fathers Henry Parks and Sir William (Good Iron Mac) Mc Millen to prevent Party control of our Australian Parliament. They wanted our representatives to represent the individuals not Political Parties. So on the basis of “Those that live in Glass Houses should not throw Stones” our party politicians will never complain as they have to so we the people have to accept treason as a daily occurrence in our halls of government. That does not mean we just walk away from it, we have to tell everyone we know about it, we have to keep striving to change things and regain our freedoms. Its not much of a choice its simple either Vote for Liberty or Tyranny.
Questions to Ask Your Anti Gun Friends??
On Facebook every time we have a published massacre, ( I say that as there are many massacres that occur every day, forty or fifty dead in a third world country, but if they are not in a Gay Brothel, or a Gun Free zone we never hear about them) we are inundated by anti gunners full of Hoplophobia zeal. I have over the last forty years had to deal with them personally or in letters to the editor and I have found that best way is to ask them nicely to answer a few questions and then your will answer theirs. I have put the questions on this site so you can easily cut and paste them into a facebook post.
There is no Spring without Winter, without Mistakes there is no Learning. There is no Life without Death, without Doubts there is no Faith. There is no Peace without War, without Fear there is no Courage. For without Mistakes, Doubts and Fears there are no pathways to Wisdom.
Scope Package Out of Stock, hoping to get some more soon.
The JW 15 sometimes known as the Chinese Brno, the Norinco or the Puma. The best value .22 Rifle on the market. $195 Synthetic or Wood. As many of you are aware, the Jain Wia Model 15, or JW 15 Norinco, or JW Puma is a copy of the old bolt action Model 1 BRNO. It has been on the market for years and has a well earned reputation as a reliable accurate work horse. Basically the rifle is simple, it has a simple but large bolt, that has diametrically opposed double locking lugs, (not just locking on the bolt handle) which has the advantage of safer lock up behind the cartridge and broader locking surfaces that resist head space wear, as a high point on a single locking lug can quickly wear and the shooter will experience cartridge rims blowing out due to the excess headspace. It has a simple 5 round magazine which is steel and a steel magazine holder, all features that are sometimes missing on firearms that cost $1000 or more. They have simple trigger system almost identical to the Brno Model 1 that we all had no problem adjusting in the 1960s. The wooden stock is not walnut, it’s just a simple stock made of some unspecified Chinese wood, which has properties similar to Walnut. Rough on the inside but these day have an attractive oil finished on the outside, blink the eye and it looks like a CZ American Classic without the price tag. The action at first is not silky smooth like a Tikka, its a little gritty, but plenty of use, or take off the sharp edges with a fine wet and dry paper and it soon smooths down into a nice action. The same goes for the trigger as it is no frills, just require a little TLC on the adjustment and it always works. Forget the safety catch, you would need to be a Russian weightlifter, or a Japanese Sumo wrestler to get it on and off, but all rifles are safe if the bolt is open and deadly dangerous when closed. No safety ever should be trusted, the bolt is much more visible and can be much easily visually checked by all present. My old JW Norinco is primarily a rabbit rifle. Countless rabbits have been sent to the happy hunting ground, and in the early 1990s I did get a AAA second in the Metallic Silhouettes Nationals and State Champions with it. In essence this is what the JW 15 is built for, it’s a hunting tool that is reliable and solidly built which can be used at the range for plinking and starting on the competition circuits. My JW is also accurate, at 100 metres using Eley Club, I can get a 5 shot group in less than an inch. I have seen it out shoot many more expensive rifles at the range. It is one of the rifles that I will never sell as it has earned my faith and trust in all of the endeavours I have asked for it, and will continue to do so for many years to come. Also at $195. they are the best value .22lr on the Australian market. So do yourself a favour and go get yourself one or two, you will be pleasantly surprised. Ron
