    Many of you may have read or viewed disturbing media reports over the past week on how Victorian Police are “concerned” about a new “rapid fire” lever action shotgun about to be released for sale in Australia. As expected these reports have been followed by calls in the media and by various “experts” and officials for a rethink (read new gun grab) on Australian gun laws.

    At Shooters Union we have been aware of a disturbing trend appearing over the past year. First a rumour here and a dropped word there from someone in a meeting. We were hesitant to bring it to our members because, to be honest, every single official that was approached denied there were any plans afoot to change legislation regarding certain types of firearms.

    OOPS, now it appears these same people are coming out from their dark little corners because they think a modern lever action shotgun can be used to make the public fearful enough to push even more non-effective restrictions on you, the legitimate law-abiding firearm user.

    Manually Operated Rapid Fire Weapons” MORFW (surely only a government department could even imagine such a title).
    MORFW’s include the following:

    • All lever action firearms (rifle/shotgun)

    • ALL pump rifles (pump action shotguns already heavily restricted)

    • Straight pull bolt action rifles with detachable magazines

    The basic proposal is that MORFW’s should be reclassified as Category C firearms, as is currently done for self loading rimfire rifles and shotguns and pump action shotguns. This means that 95% of shooters could not own or use them!

    Total disarmament is the objective. Frog in a pot is the Modus Operandi.

    I hunt with a handgun. Telling me that he supports a handgun ban is not going to go well for him.

    Indeed, a prime example of giving an inch and then another and another... only to find nothing left to give.

    I hope Australia can fight this off and retain what few firearms they seem to have have left. It'll be a hard fight to push back and regain what they've lost. Maybe they'll be able to but if they can it won't be easy or quick.

    But we also need to pay attention because this is what is happening here. Niemoller's statement is very much in effect. They already got the short barrel handguns marked prohib. They're after semi-autos and all handguns now. After that it'll be the dangerous "sniper rifles" (used by hunters). After that will be pump and lever actions. Then after that sweep up the rimfire and single shot firearms.
