The government’s poor behaviour in relation to its deal with me on the Adler import ban is not only about trust, but also about what’s being done to sporting shooters.
It is yet another step in the process of disarming law-abiding Australians, of preventing them from enjoying their sporting, hunting and collecting activities, and towards the end envisaged by John Howard in 1996 in which only the police, military and security guards have guns.
And if the government can’t be trusted to keep to a deal with me, how can it be trusted if it owns all the guns?
