The anti-gun lobby is ramping up its message and gaining momentum for anti-firearms legislation across the country which would rip away the rights of law-abiding firearm owners.

Shooters Union (Queensland) stands up for your rights as a licensed, responsible firearms owner. With your right to own a firearm in jeopardy, we need to act now to do something about it. But we can’t do it alone. We want you to join us for dinner on 13 August to voice your disagreement to this proposed draconian firearm legislation.

Listen to our expert speakers, get informed, learn what’s worked internationally and become part of the solution. That means common sense firearm legislation that punishes criminals and protects the rights of farmers, sporting shooters and firearm enthusiasts.

About the Event…

  • Garry Breitkreutz MP
  • Dr. Samara McPhedran, PhD
  • About the Evening
Garry Breitkreutz!Canadian member of parliament, Garry Breitkreutz is visiting Australia as a guest of Shooters Union and will be sharing his extensive knowledge of firearms legislation.

After spending more than $2 BILLION of taxpayer funds over a 15 year period, Canada recently completely dismantled it’s long-arms’ registry and modified many of its firearm laws to reflect a far more common sense approach.

Mr Breitkreutz is recognised as one of the principal architects of those massive changes. He has worked tirelessly for more than 15 years to bring a level-headed, evidence-based approach to firearms legislation in Canada.

Mr Breitkreuz is recognised across the world for his extensive work and expertise on the federal gun registry file in Canada. As a member of parliament, he worked tirelessly to dismantle the long arms registry and to protect the rights of law abiding farmers, hunters and sporting shooters. He helped create the All-Party Parliamentary Outdoors Caucus, which acts to ensure Canadians’ right to practise and enjoy their traditional outdoor heritage activities including hunting, fishing, sport shooting and trapping.

In 2005, he was granted the Sport Shooting Ambassador Award by the World Forum on the Future of Sport Shooting Activities.

SamaraDr Samara McPhedran holds a PhD in Psychology, awarded by the University of Sydney, and has particular expertise in firearms policy analysis and evaluation. She has an extensive track record of research examining the impacts of firearms legislation in Australia and elsewhere, with her work published in international peer-reviewed academic journals. After spending a number of years working in state and federal public service roles, Dr McPhedran returned to academia in 2012, where she has focussed on suicide and homicide prevention, and violence prevention more broadly.

She has served on various expert advisory panels, including the Commonwealth Firearms Advisory Council and Queensland Ministerial Weapons Advisory Panel, and recently appeared before the Senate Inquiry into the ability of Australian law enforcement authorities to eliminate gun-related violence in the community. Dr McPhedran is a firearms owner, hunter, and current Chair of the International Coalition for Women in Shooting and Hunting (WiSH).

An excellent 2 course dinner will be provided on the night (cash bar is available in the room) as you join fellow firearms owners and friends to hear these very talented speakers look at some common sense approaches to gun law reform in Queensland and across Australia.

Too many of us have taken a “head in the sand” approach to gun laws since 1996. The mainstream media and major party politicians tell us that we should be happy with the laws, but any observant person can see that all current laws have done is cost a fortune and discriminate needlessly against licensed and legitimate firearm owners. Statistics show these people are the LEAST likely people in society to break the law.
