Gun con­trol

Daily Mercury - - NEWS | OPINION -

A CEN­TRAL firearm de­pos­i­tory as well as firearm reg­is­tra­tion is di­a­bol­i­cally lu­di­crous and works in favour of a gov­ern­ment want­ing to sub­ju­gate the peo­ple or an in­vader.

Be­fore the Ger­mans went into Poland they had their quis­lings in ad­min­is­tra­tive po­si­tions in Poland to en­force gun reg­is­tra­tion un­der the guise of pub­lic safety (sounds fa­mil­iar). When the in­va­sion even­tu­ated the Gestapo and Pol­ish po­lice rounded up all reg­is­tered guns, negat­ing any re­sis­tance.

Twenty years be­fore the Sec­ond World War Ja­panese spies had as­sessed Aus­tralia’s ca­pa­bil­ity to de­fend it­self, as writ­ten in an ex­cerpt from the Ja­panese High Com­mand on the pro­posed in­va­sion of Aus­tralia (writ­ten in the book Pa­cific Part­ners, about the Asia Pa­cific re­gion dur­ing that time).

In this ex­cerpt it is stated “Aus­tralian pub­lic are well armed, know how to use these arms and would pose a se­ri­ous threat to any oc­cu­py­ing force”.

In­ci­dents that have oc­curred around the world have shown that fire, ex­plo­sives, ve­hi­cles can achieve mass ca­su­al­ties too.

There is more to safety than meets the eye with the gun con­trol push and our de­fence ca­pa­bil­ity is be­ing dan­ger­ously di­min­ished. — Norman Timms, Bun­gun­darra
