Gun Laws

Every Australian was horrified of the events that took place at Port Arthur Tasmania on April 28th 1996. Every Australian mourned with the families and friends of those innocent men, women and children.

The Government, with full support of the opposition and minor parties, reacted swiftly and unparalleled with the introduction of tough new gun laws.

The decision to implement the current Gun Legislation was based, not on community consultation, but, upon the alleged actions of a mentally deficient psychotic with an IQ in the low sixties. To legislate around the horrendous conduct of the alleged psychotic perpetrator shows the manifest weakness of the government's response.

Australians, not so much angered by the national licensing and registration of weapons, but legislation aimed at firearm removal from law abiding citizens, will illustrate to the political parties at future Federal and State elections - that they have lost touch with the people.

I am sure that we can all feel safe and secure in knowing that sadistic killers, drug traffickers and other criminals have handed in their illegal weapons.

Conclusion - The current Gun Legislation will, unfortunately, effect decent, honest, hard working Australians whose only brush with the authorities will occur as a result of their no-compliance with a firearm legislation seemingly designed for the disarmament of the Australian People.
