SHOOTERS Union has always been about actively standing up for and representing shooters, and once again we have put our money and energy where our mouth is to make sure NSW shooters can make a difference at the ballot on March 23.

Time to end longarm registration

The latest questions being raised about the NSW Firearms Registry just confirms what we already know: Longarms registration is an expensive and ineffective waste of everyone’s time and money, and doesn’t improve public safety.

Self-Defence is an absolute right for ALL Australians

NEWS a Sydney man has been released without charges after an intruder died in his home represents a rare win for common sense in NSW. Johan Schwartz reportedly confronted an intruder in his family’s living room and following a scuffle, the intruder died.

Victorian Police don’t need 800 AR-15s

Victoria Police are tooling up in a big way to fight a largely imaginary enemy, it seems, following news they are acquiring 800 .223 calibre AR-15s, ostensibly to “combat terrorism.” And also this segment on 3AW.

NSW Police Minister Troy Grant has announced the state is banning so-called “Zombie Knives” at the end of this month, putting them on the Prohibited Weapons schedule and requiring owners to hand them in or potentially ...

Is your professional/trade union funding gun haters?

In the wake of revelations the Electrical Trades Union (ETU) donated $200,000 to the Victorian branch of the Greens last year, shooters across Australia should pay close attention to where their professional or trade organisations choose to contribute politically. Recently released filings with the Australian Electoral Commission confirm the donation was made in the 2017/2018 financial year. Shooters Union Australia ...

Enough is Enough – End Animal Rights Activism

THEY say you should never bite the hand that feeds you, but apparently some Australia’s animal rights activists missed that memo. Anti-farm group “Aussie Farms” has released a map of Australia showing the location of hundreds, possibly thousands, of farms, along with implications the owners may be involved in “animal exploitation”. The organisation describes itself as “an animal rights charity, ...

It’s time to talk about Self-Defence

The important discussion about personal safety which has been reignited after tragic events in Melbourne has involved a lot of screeching and blaming, but not much in the way of practical solutions. Virtue signalling, being ‘woke’ online and blaming a specific group for the situation might win Internet Points, but it doesn’t provide a constructive solution to a real problem ...
