Rigging by Deception: The Gun Control Drive, Australia by John Steele
The gun control debate recently resurfaced over the issue of the import ban of the Adler A110 lever action shotgun, which has become the latest hate symbol of the castrating gun control lobby. Turnbull and Abbott had a tiff about whether horse-trading had taken place to get NSW senator David Leyonhjelm’s vote. Leyonhjelm said that the federal government backed out of a written agreement to trade his vote on other legislation in exchange for an end to the Adler prohibitions and he claims being deceived by the Coalition. Yet more “rigging”.
Tony Abbott denied that any citizens outside of those protecting pollies, such as law enforcement, require a rapid-fire gun, and said the idea was just “crackers,” especially with terrorists out there. (The Australian, October 20, 2016, p. 4) That is a good reason why Abbott lost his position as prime minister because he doesn’t act and think like a classical liberal, but is more of the mold of Hillary Clinton.
It should not be the role of politicians to tell people what they need or don’t need; that is socialism, not liberalism.
He denied that there had been a deal with Leyonhjelm; time to produce the written agreement David, or maybe Wikileaks should turn its attention to Australian politics! Time for Abbott to leave parliament; Malcolm next.
The idea of Abbott and the gun controllers that the Adler is a national security threat is “crackers,” to use Tony’s turn of phrase. There will be a nationwide gun amnesty next year to deal with about 260,000 illegal guns circulating in Australia. This is pretty silly or just propaganda because these guns are in the hands of criminals and ethnic gangs: Breitbart.com, October 22, 2016.
The Age (http://www.theage.com/interactive/2016/gun-city/day1.html), had an article “Young, Dumb and Armed” on gang/gun violence. “Gun controlled” Melbourne has had one shooting a week on average since January 2015. The Age notes:
“Crimes associated with firearm possession have also more than doubled, driven by the easy availability of handguns, semi-automatic rifles, shotguns and increasingly, machine guns, that are smuggled into the country or stolen from licensed owners.”
Thus, “criminals are now better armed than at any time since then-Prime Minister John Howard introduced a nationwide firearm buyback scheme in response to the 1996 Port Arthur massacre.”
Known criminals were caught with firearms 755 times in 2015, compared to 143 times in 2011. Justice Minister Michael Keenan admitted: “While Australia has some of the strongest firearm controls in the world, illicit firearms remain the weapon of choice for criminals.” Don’t expect to find any exploration of this on the hysterical TV news programs.
It is clear that Australia’s gun control problem has arisen from the rise of the power of ethnic crime gangs. An amnesty is going to do nothing because guns are the tools of trade in the world of drugs and the “ice” epidemic. Taking guns away from law abiding citizens is just going to make it easier for these new warlords to rule the streets. But that was probably the plan behind citizen gun banning anyway: to create a passive, defenceless population of soft bunny rabbits, not democratic citizens.
People will eventually fully accept the creation of police state rule by the New World Order.
