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, 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.
Making laws based on ‘assumption’
The current Liberal Government is letting Tasmania Police lead policy on gun laws.
Recently they (TasPol) sent the following advice to the NSC on why the state has appearance laws which allow the police to ban any firearm based on what it looks like:
Assumption? How good do you think a law is likely to be when it is based on an assumption?
Appearance laws are creating uncertainty and a regulatory nightmare for industry and shooters alike. To base laws on assumptions is simply not good enough.
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).
It’s clear to us that the Liberals are not taking shooters seriously. Let’s assume that we don’t need them. If you have better candidates to choose from, then that’s who we recommend you vote for.
