The NSC is recommending shooters voting in the 1 May Tasmanian State Election change their vote away from the Liberals.
This year’s election is one of the most important ones that shooters in Tasmania have had for quite a while. Tasmania has an unfriendly firearms registry, appearance laws which are creating uncertainty, an education policy that opposes and denigrates organised clay target shooting activities for schools and a government that is simply not going to help shooters unless shooters start to change their vote.
At the 2018 State Election, the Liberal Party reneged on commitments to streamline the state’s gun laws, including extending the duration of licences. These would have been sensible changes that would have helped the state’s firearm owners.
The state’s police minister, Mark Shelton, has turned his back on firearm owners looking for sensible changes for this election.
Mr Shelton holds one of the seats of Lyons, and we need shooters to send the clear message to the Liberals that they must NOT to take firearm owners for granted. Shelton needs to go.
With Labor not being much of an alternative for shooters, we recommend you look for one of the other options which includes other pro-gun parties such as the SFFP (various seats), Federation Party (Clark), and independents like Will Smith (Windermere).
We don’t trust the Tasmanian Liberals: if you have better candidates to choose from, then that’s who we recommend you vote for.
