    A heads-up from the SSAA Know thine enemy - and the utter sh*te he propagates.

    GunControl Australia, an organisation not renowned for rational thought, who were instrumental in getting in Howard's ear when the 'Great Crackdown of 1996' was enacted. They serve up gems like these:

    We too could be like America! Gulp!

    the-sporting-shooters-association-ssaa-and-the-eleven-to-one-gamble/

    Like I said...logic is not their strong suit lol


    Then, this ground-breaking solution:

    Where are all the Non-killing Guns?
    Posted on July 6, 2009


    In his President message for October 2007, the SSAA National President, Bob Green, complained about Gun Control Australia saying that “Teaching a child to shoot is teaching a child to kill”.

    Guns are designed to fire or propel high-speed projectiles. These so-called bullets are, in the vast majority of cases, designed to kill something or to be used to practice for the killing process. Shooters may have noticed that you don’t need to take a safety training course when you buy a tennis racquet, and the racquet does not have to be registered with the police. The reason is that, unlike guns, tennis racquets are not designed to kill. Gun laws are based on this fundamental fact.

    Hunting is the most common reason that people give in order to qualify to own a gun. The law throughout Australia allows appropriate licence holders to hunt-to-kill various species at various times. Whilst this is often done for pleasure, hunters may be encouraged to do this with government bounties if excess numbers of a certain animal is considered to have occurred. Whether shooting is the best way to reduce feral animal numbers may be debated, but it is understandable that shooters would claim to be of service to the community when they reduce such numbers.

    For the most part, handguns are fundamentally designed to threaten, injure or kill other humans, or to practice for that.

    Why then should people query a statement such as: “Teaching a child to shoot is teaching a child to kill”, because that is exactly what the great majority of guns are designed to do.

    Where is the much sought-after magazine which only advertises non-killing guns (NKguns) and non-killing gun events?

    Gun Control Australia would like to see a new type of gun, the NKgun. We are examining the possibility of awarding a $1000 prize for the best design of such a gun that is shown to us before the 31 December 2009.

    The essence of NKguns is that (to those so oriented) they give the satisfaction of ‘killing’ some living thing without actually doing any damage to that thing. The hope of the Gun Control Australia committee is that those shooters who at present have no choice but use Kguns for personal satisfaction will transfer their allegiance to NKguns

    We wonder if the National President of the SSAA will be one of those people.

    And THIS is just priceless...

    A NEW SHOOTERS OATH
    Posted on January 22, 2008


    To start 2008, and in the interest of reducing gun fatalities and injuries, GCA proposes that all gun owners be required to formally make this commitment when sitting for their Shooters Licence.

    A NEW SHOOTERS OATH

    I AM AWARE THAT GUNS FIRE HIGH SPEED PROJECTILES WHICH ARE DESIGNED TO KILL.

    IN EXERCISING THE PRIVILEGE TO OWN GUNS, I THEREFORE ACCEPT THAT SOME GUNS IN A COMMUNITY COULD BE USED TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE.

    I WILL DO EVERYING POSSIBLE TO PREVENT THIS HAPPENING.

    Signed………………………………….Name…………………………………………..



    OH, NO....no shooters are aware of this I'm sure. Being the trained killers and proto-psychopaths we are, lol.

    And, strangely enough the vast majority of "guns in a community used to kill innocent people" are in fact wielded by criminals who aren't very keen to become legally licensed. Hey who woulda thought? :rolleyes:

    What percentage of those shootings were the result of legitimate self defense scenarios where an armed assailant was shot while attempting to take the life of an innocent person? Or a store keeper shooting a robber? Or suicides?
    Subtract those numbers...then divide by 15.

    How many beatings and stabbings and rapes and robberies are committed in unarmed nations and could have been prevented by a law abiding and safety trained citizen defending themselves?

    The vast majority or firearm related crimes are obviously committed by criminals using unregistered weapons bought illegally. By removing the citizens option of self defense(considering criminals have firearms) and reducing them to waiting victims and easy targets, it creates a population dependent on the police for protection.
    Lets say it takes 5 minutes for a policecar to arrive after you have called them. Thats AFTER you are able to call them, possibly AFTER the crime has been committed be it a robbery or you or your wife or daughter has been raped or you or your family have been beaten and your possessions are stolen. Thats AFTER the criminal has left and your property and life are either gone or in ruins. Now count off 5 minutes and absorb how long it takes to pass. Imagine you are holding your ravaged wife in your arms as you count those minutes off. Now picture your home full of police for the next few hours as they grill you and take pictures of you or your wife or kids...then comes the counseling. You or her now get to experience the aftermath as the mental side of this takes over and its never the same again. You never feel safe again, anywhere. You realize no one can protect or help really and you are pretty much alone and vulnerable.

    Z, i'm fairly ignorant of Australian culture, but given the ties to Britain, i wonder about the popularity of darts and archery in Australia.

    It would seem that archery would be more palatable as it is obviously geared more toward putting meat on the family table via hunting. Surely, darts can only serve to "threaten, injure or kill other humans, or to practice for that". :rolleyes: Have all of the dart boards been converted to the plastic safety tips or what? I won't even get into the likelihood that bar patrons would be even more dangerous with their darts due to inebriation.

    ;)

    Appreciate that, sigp250. And I agree with all of it - only trouble is we have no legal RIGHT to bear arms, never have as self defence is an unlawful reason for posession - I know it's probably hard to comprehend that coming from a country which has (well so far anyway!) managed to gain freedoms many in other parts of the world never had. But firearm ownership is a PRIVILEDGE here, not a citizen's right. Hence the genuine reasons of sport & legit hunting only.



    Can you guess? uh no that would be an illegal projectile if any compressed gas system is used lol


    Yes wouldn't many of those deaths be crims retaliating against their own kind, as you say? Funny, that is the majority of cases here too :rolleyes:


    There is ONE recorded instance of an injury on a range here - somone got hurt when part of a structure holding the flag fell on him during a shotgun comp...oh and a couple of older guys have fallen down a hill or two, lol

    But THAT'S IT! as far as "range injuries" have gone in the last 15 yrs.

    Yes there have been some accidental shootings while people have been hunting (neg discharges etc) but that is a miniscule number compared to the amount of people who hunt - ie the majority of registered shooters. Competitive target shooters [like me] are a very small percentage of the whole firearms-using community.



    Cap guns?? I dunno, sounds awful risky! heh


    Yeah maybe that's why darts aren't a really big thing here like in Britain :D That and the fact drinking lends itself to outdoor barbeques a lot more here. Don't know if you would have room for dartboards among the poker machines in pubs here anyway :rolleyes:

    Not sure of the numbers who would hunt with bows, orange...but I know crossbows come into the 'SCARY & ILLEGAL" category. like so much else!
