It is normal to accept corruption and extortion from our government with no avenue or recourse to justice. The long standing offence of government demanding ever increasing extortion, and that is what it is, as when any force says, pay us, give us, with no return, or we will take all your property and imprison you, that is extortion and it is corrupt to even propose that concept. We accept this in taxation, we accept this with our firearm licences, with our permits to acquire, and still they will come against us and take our property even though we are innocent. Our leaders in the Media, Banking and Politics have thrown Crime and Punishment in reverse, we have to put the bars on our windows, we are the punished, they disarm us so we can be fed to the wolves. We are forced to buy safes, and are charged as criminals when they are stolen. We are asked to help when Policeman loses his pistol, and we are guilty if we have ours stolen from our safe. You all see our downfall everyday, it’s the death of the western world by inches, proceeding into a return to the medieval age. Our leaders extort our wealth on the pretext that they defend us, but do nothing to defend our borders. They take our guns, but use their guns to disarm their own nation. Treason, is the name for this in any fair persons vocabulary. We are headed for dangerous times.
“And when they seek to oppress you, And when they try to destroy you, Rise and Rise again and again Like The Phoenix from the ashes. Until the Lambs have become Lions and the Rule of Darkness is no more” Unknown Quote.
For over twenty years now this reversal of justice has been accepted as normal. We adopt the language of compliance, to deaden the howl of protest which burns inside us, but the pretence only serves to ease participation by our political leaders, the more they get the greater becomes their greed, the more power and money they want. I believe that there must never be a time when someone fails to protest.
Guilty. I have been charged many hundreds of times with crimes against the State, the repetition proves the anger that drove the persecution, but up to this date I have not been convicted by a court. My defence, has cost millions in time and money, but it is not as costly to me personally, as the charge from many of my friends, that say ‘I hold onto an idealism that no longer exists’.
Its costly, that really hurts as I am guilty, of believing that the right of self defence, and the ownerships of the means to preserve life and limb are not given to us by politicians, or documents. Yes, the Magna Cart and our Bill of Rights recognise the Rights that have existed since before time began, but recognise they don’t give or take. I believe that Gun laws and similar legislation that remove our rights are a growing cancer and the only proper recourse is to cut them right out. You all know what I am referring to, we have all been subjected to the extortion, you have been penalised without crime, you are taxed without a benefit, your property has been stolen, you are fined for owning what is left. I am not judging my fellow sufferers, but judge our leaders and make another warning.
The Lambs have to turn into Lions and Quickly. I like all of you have failed, I have compromised, I have tried to oppose them by selling thousands of firearms and have used the proceeds to express opposition by printing magazines, running court cases, writing books, political campaigns yet have had to play by their rules and been subjected to their legislation. I am guilty of trying to oppose ‘injustice’ but guilty as well of not opposing every ‘injustice’. Are human beings more concerned with ‘having’ than ‘being’? We can all fail to fight every injustice, there are too many of them, at this time, but we must never fail to protest each time.
At What Point Do You Finally Protest? Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. After the war he said this.
“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”
In our context it has been the same, First they came for the Semi -Automatics and I did not speak out— Because I did not have Semi -Automatics. Then they came for the Pump action Shotguns, and I did not speak out– Because I did not have a Pump action Shotgun. Then they came for the Pistols, and I did not speak out – because I did not have Pistols. Then they came for the Lever Actions, and that is Now. Which is me, but now there was no one left to speak for me.
At what point do we stand our ground, at what point do we bare the slings and arrows of being called extremists and red necks, by our leaders in the media? Do we wait until there is only half of us left, or a quarter? Already we are forced into debt slavery, do we wait until they force us, to tyrannise other people, the ones closest to us, so we can pay the extortion to our masters? Do they make us break their laws, which forces us to risk the lives and welfare of those closest to us? Now we all know that the enemy are revelling in the entrails of the church tragedy in the USA preparing to move again with further restrictions on the law abiding licenced shooters of Australia, they are falsely using the demands of the Victorian Police to gain greater empires. Lever Actions are now their catch cry. Creating more Armies, of Armed so called public servant to tyrannise us all, calling them police, or by any other name still puts a class of armed people to control us, at the bidding of the government. By doing nothing, we give aid and assistance to our enemies, our silence is what forges the chains that enslaves us. If they allowed to keep binding us they will squeeze us so tightly that we will die defenceless.
Yes, fill out the petitions, on line or at your local gun shop, but please do not count that as doing anything to defend your way of life, your sport, your hobby, your right to defend yourself, only count the times that you write a letter to your local member of parliament, inform him and all other members of parliament that Recommendation 5 of the Senate, Legal and Constitutional Affairs Report on Australian Gun Laws.
“1.225 The majority of Senators attending the inquiry recommend State and territory governments investigate avenues to deregulate the firearm industry to ease the economic burden on governments, industry and legal firearm users.”
Count only the protest rally you go to, or the sign you put up in your garden, or your money to make sure that pro guns and hunting politician are elected. We don’t need talk, we need action, the Lambs have to return again to being Lions.

“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.

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, 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. Its Bargain Time.
