LATEST UPDATES FROM THE SHOOTERS UNION CAMPAIGNERS

Whitsundays: Are you sick of being ignored?

Recently we had the pleasure of interviewing Ciaron Paterson, the Katter Australia Party Candidate for your electorate of Whitsunday. A passionate advocate for your region, Ciaron is contesting the seat to ensure “the Whitsunday electorate gets the support and infrastructure it needs to grow and prosper.” We need real strategies for helping our embattled tourism sector to get back on its feet. Our sugar cane farmers need a government cash-injection NOW and the local economy needs HELP. 

I am proudly running for Katter’s Australia Party because I can see the damage the major parties have caused through their regional neglect. Come October 31st, vote for a party that will put the Whitsundays first and not Brisbane.

A passionate advocate for the Whitsunday region, Ciaron has policies aimed at supporting tourism recovery, fixing water access issues for farmers & primary producers, and increasing the ethanol mandate. These initiatives will provide opportunities for producers, local manufacturers and processors whilst also increasing agricultural product demand. 

Shooters Union is endorsing Ciaron as our pick for the candidate most likely to bring about meaningful and lasting change in the Whitsunday region.

Shooters Union unveils Australian First Pro-Gun Voting App

AUSTRALIA’S pre-eminent pro-shooting organisation has unveiled a new app to give shooters and supporters information about elections and advice on how to vote to protect their interests.

The free Shooters Union How To Vote Pro-Gun app provides users with a range of useful pro-shooting electoral and voting information relevant to them, to help them make an informed and pro-gun choice at the ballot box.

The app is available free at https://howtovoteprogun.com.au/ for PC and on the Google Play store for Android devices.  

Direct link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.votingguideapp

We have developed an iOS version for Apple devices but the Apple Store have been dragging their feet on approving it – allegedly because of COVID-19; we think it could also possibly because it’s a pro-gun voting app and that doesn’t suit certain agendas.

Note: the App is currently ONLY providing functional information for the Queensland State Election

It will be updated for other states and elections in future.

Shooters Union Australia president Graham Park said the How To Vote Pro-Gun app was, as far as he was aware, the first time in Australian history a pro-shooting group had put together such an app – and it was available to anyone who wanted to use it, not just Shooters Union members.

“We’ve been saying for more than 20 years that shooters need to vote to protect their interests, and in every election we get inundated with members across the state asking ‘who should I vote for?’,” he said.

“Collating an electorate-by-electorate list of who shooters should vote for to protect their rights and give them a fair go has previously been a lot of work and getting that info to the people who need it in an accessible fashion has also proven a challenge.

“Now, thanks to the incredibly hard work of the Shooters Union team as well as advances in computers, internet, smartphones and tablets, we can finally do that effectively.”

Whether it’s finding out what electorate a person lives in to listing all the candidates there based on Shooters Union recommendations, the How To Vote Pro-Gun app can help shooters and supporters ensure their vote makes the most difference on polling day.

The app will initially cover the 2020 Queensland election but is designed so it will be quickly updated for all State and Federal elections as they occur.

“No matter where you live in Australia, if there’s a State or Federal election affecting you, we will have the appropriate voting advice available via this app,” Mr Park said.

“Watch this space – we’re just getting started.”

Big City Politicians Are Threatening Your Rights.

If you live in rural or regional Queensland, you’ve no doubt experienced the stupidity of “Big City Thinking” on rural and regional problems.

Whether it’s crocodile or land management, feral animal control or our personal favourite, Firearms Control, real world experience with real world problems is often lacking in career politicians.

In the video below, Shooters Union President Graham Park, and Katters’ Australia Party President, Robbie Katter, discuss the importance of real representation for Queenslanders who live outside the South East Corner.

Take their pocket money away

Did you know that every time you give a party your ‘1’ vote on the ballot in Queensland, you are also giving them $3.14 as well?

Under Queensland’s public election funding laws, parties receive $3.14 for every first preference (‘1’ vote) they receive – which adds up to millions of dollars every election, straight into their pockets.

We say it’s time to take the Majors’ pocket money away.

By Voting 1 for a pro-gun party like Katter’s Australian Party (KAP) or Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (PHON) or a pro-gun independent candidate, you are taking money back from the Majors, giving it to someone who can use it to fight for you, and sending a message to the big two that we as voters have had enough of being taken for granted.

Every ‘1’ vote that goes to someone else is money the Majors can’t use to push their anti-gun policies.

The Majors take the electoral funding for granted – and got a shock in 2017 when the #Flick’Em campaign resulted in the lowest first-preference vote for the Majors in Queensland history. The campaign took well over a million dollars away from the Majors and distributed it to parties representing real, hard-working Queenslanders.

The Majors clearly haven’t learned from that experience, so it’s time to remind them in a way they’ll understand – on their accounting balance sheet.

Put the Majors last and take their pocket money away!

Townsville – Are you ready for change?

Let’s put Townsville First!

Recently we had the pleasure of interviewing Josh Schwarz, the Katter’s Australian Party Candidate for your electorate of Townsville. A passionate advocate for your region, Josh is contesting the seat to “unlock the potential of our amazing home.” 

For decades the LNP and ALP have neglected the Townsville region… only remembering we exist once an election is called. 

In this election, let’s put Brisbane last by choosing politicians who are committed to NQ and seeing it prosper.

KAP candidate for Townsville, Josh Schwarz says NO to asset sales, YES to the big projects that will pull our struggling economy out of the COVID recession. 

Josh says YES to jobs and YES to agricultural & manufacturing development (including Smart Water Management Programs), tourism, defence and health project development.  Let’s get the region building so we can get back to prosperity. 

If you care about Townsville and more importantly your children’s future then make sure you vote for a party that is committed to delivering on the big projects that will get us out of the COVID-19 recession.
