David Shoebridge of the Greens recently said,"This (referring to a recent shooting) emphasises how important safe storage laws are and how any weakening of our gun laws can be a matter of life and death".

But is this so, have our gun laws been gradually weakened since 1996 or have they, in fact, been strengthened?

I would contend the latter and that Shoebridge & co are grandstanding and deliberately misleading the public.

Laws are being strengthened and 50 calibre is a strong weapon. South Australia does not require licence for cannon and a strong guy fires one at Fort Glanville and gets a kick from that.

Here we go again, the weekly "NO GUN CONTROL" discussion put up by Australia's answer to Billy The Kid. Thanks Issy...yarn! Where is Deputy Dog, he'll be along shortly to back you up.

When a police officer is killed at the point of a gun, or a three year old child shot dead, if a maniac goes crazy with a shooter and kills a massive number of innocent people, the pair of Dodge City dodgers can be relied upon to get on here, with their false platitudes of remorse and sorrow for the victims. Then they extol the virtues of their nonsense that no gun laws are necessary, the good folk will look after themselves.

Here in NSW we have two morons from the Shooters and Hooters Party in the upper house of Parliament who continually demand of government, trade offs of gun laws in return for their vote on important legislation such as education of our children, and health services for the community. They hold a gun at the governments head, time and again!

The opening crass comment refers to "a recent shooting", he does not mention it was an innocent three year old girl blown away by a deadly shotgun, her injuries must have been horrendous. But it sounds like a bit of a fuss over nothing, right Issy, a bit of grandstanding as you call it by the Greens, Ah! Issy. There is no genuine concert for the innocent victims from the gunnie brigade, all they want is the uncontrolled right to carry on with their perverse pleasure.

See you on next weeks discussion, where you can tell us how misunderstood the likes of Martin Bryant and Ian Turnbull were. And shoot The Greens down at the same time.

Falconry laws need strengthening to allow the right to bear falcons.
Eagles and condors protect against road rage . Given their incredible eyesight, it is not surprising that they will recognise their trainers, and many will continue to fear strangers unless they are introduced slowly to other people as being 'safe'. Once a manned raptor is fat, and out of the habit of coming to its trainer, as it should be after release, it has no reason to come towards people. So a small amount of cat food keeps them eating out of your hand ready to rip into bad guys.

So, Paul, which laws have been weakened?

You don't seem to have an answer, you have made the claim that they have so here's your chance to share your knowledge and insight with us all.

You continue to insult the shooters reps in Parliament, but at least they are not liars as is the Green Shoebridge, if you like you can tell me a public lie that they are guilty of and I'll give you two Shoebridge lies in return.

Just a little piece of information on what has been strengthened would be wonderful and banish the traitorous Greens from the realm and highlands.
