John Howard Emerges from the Gun Closet to Further Demonise Gun Owners Before he Kicks the Bucket

By Editor, cairnsnews

WEF asset and former PM John Howard should stick with his knitting and crochet and keep his Jewish nose out of firearm issues; sources say he has had dementia for some time and his contribution cannot be relied upon. We can only hope he lives long enough to face a people’s court for his disarming of Australia

Cairns News’ extensive Port Arthur library will take the tarnish right off the official spew emanating from the gun diatribe of the Sydney Morning Herald which has not yet recovered from the public backlash after its Disneyland Sovereign Citizens fairytale over Christmas.

Roland Browne of Gun Control Australia usually gets his umbrella mixed up with his rusted Purdey when it starts to rain and he pulls it out of his hallway cupboard. His neighbors said last time he put the umbrella up the porch light disintegrated.

Any intelligent writers who may exist at the SMH were on the grog over Christmas so they got the cleaner to write the AFP terrorist story right from the AFP staff canteen where the few left on duty were indulging in a box of confiscated VB’s. Seems they are still on the slops and this beer is not called ‘vomit bombs’ for nothing. It is brewed in Melbourne and full of fluoride.

Former prime minister John Howard, from a Jewish family, has joined gun-control advocates and police to sound alarm at inconsistent firearms regulations that risk undermining restrictions on high-powered multi-shot weapons.
Howard, who spearheaded efforts to tighten Australia’s gun laws in the wake of the Port Arthur massacre, said the community would be “very angry” if there were any weakening of firearms control.

Many, many angry Australians would like to see the Tasmanian Coroner’s inquest into the Port Arthur massacre reopened with the same Coroner who ran the first and only one. That Coroner found the evidence presented did not support the patsy Martin Bryant being the shooter. He then shut down the inquiry. This inquest and any trace of it has long been buried.

Subsequent television exposes inadvertently supported this finding although the programs were intended to bury Bryant even deeper, they backfired when Bryant in a police reenactment clip clearly demonstrated he was a bumbling left-handed shooter when all the eyewitness statements stated the real shooter was right-handed. That bombshell should have been sufficient to get Bryant out of jail and start an official inquiry.

There was a litany of evidence withheld by the special ops police while the Mossad-controlled operation made many mistakes buried by Tasmania Police and the media.

The evidence scrutinised by Cairns News and other alternative news sites in Australia and elsewhere clearly demonstrated John Howard knew of the massacre well in advance.

Gun safety advocates and the Australian Federal Police Association are demanding states urgently align their gun laws, pointing to major inconsistencies in the way some high-powered, rapid-fire weapons were treated by state authorities.

The Wedgetail MPR308, a pump-action rifle, for example, is banned in NSW, Tasmania and the ACT but can be bought by recreational and sporting shooters in every other state and territory. Gun Control Australia vice president Roland Browne said it was “crazy” that such discrepancies existed between adjacent jurisdictions for such powerful, quick-fire firearms.

Poor Roland, he is terrified although the Wedgetail vaguely resembles a fully automatic military rifle or a gel blaster when in fact its capacity and ability are not half as good as any military-issued or police firearm. He again is delusional. This ridiculous commentary is what occurs when the equally ignorant media takes notice of an idiot.

“We deplore those guns being in circulation in the general community,” Browne said.
“They can kill or injure many people quickly and we’re seeing governments around Australia allow them to circulate. We have no need for them in a civil society.”
Australian Gun Safety Alliance convenor Stephen Bendle said the military-style Wedgetail MPR308 was the sort of weapon not foreseen when the National Firearms Agreement banned automatic and semi-automatic weapons 28 years ago.

“We’ve got a whole industry making new and high-powered weapons and endeavouring to make them commercially available,” Bendle said.
“All jurisdictions should be consistent in ensuring that these are prohibited, or at the very least available only to a very few highly regulated professional shooters.”
Wedgetail Industries, the manufacturer of the MPR308 rifle, did not respond to repeated inquiries for comment.

Australian Federal Police Association president Alex Caruana said it was an “oversight” not to have banned or heavily restricted pump-action rifles in the same way pump-action shotguns were restricted after the Port Arthur massacre.
Caruana said consistency across jurisdictions was critical in gun control, given it was only as strong as the weakest link. “If you’ve got softer laws in one state, that weakens the laws in the other states,” he said.
Browne echoed this view: “A person in Victoria can purchase a rapid-fire rifle and transport it over the border into NSW where it can’t be purchased. That’s crazy.”

Bendle said inconsistent gun laws put owners at legal peril. “Someone might buy a gun legitimately in one state and travel to other states where it might be unknowingly breaking the law,” he said.
Shown a clip of the Wedgetail MPR308 in action, Howard said, “it looks very lethal to me”. He said Australia’s ban on automatic and semi-automatic weapons was world-leading for the time and “undeniably led to a safer Australia”.

“My general view is that our prohibitions should be tough, they should be comprehensive, they should be nationwide and if we want to maintain the full impact of those reforms that were achieved all those years ago in the wake of the Port Arthur tragedy, then we’ll make sure our laws comply with those three requirements,” Howard said.

“The overwhelming majority of the Australian people would be angry, very angry indeed, if they felt there was any weakening of what was achieved in the wake of Port Arthur.”

Caruana said the federal police association wanted ammunition purchases restricted by limiting gun owners to the particular bullets, shells or cartridges used in their licensed weapon.

“If I only owned a .22 long rifle firearm, why should I be able to buy 12-gauge ammunition?” he said, adding this would help prevent “leakage” of ammunition into the black and gray markets.
“Regardless of your category of licence, you should only be able to buy the ammunition for the firearm that you’re licensed to own.”

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese last month convinced premiers and chief ministers to establish a national firearms register, a National Cabinet decision that will finally deliver on a Howard-era ambition three decades after it was first imagined.
