The Port Arthur tragedy is not now mentioned without referring to banning the Adler lever-action shotgun.

  • I did read this article and was pleased. There has been a lot of propaganda during this time where Port Arthur has been hijacked for the anti gun lobby. This was the only pro gun article from the major news outlets that I could find for the period.

    Its a bit sad that we dont have more real conservative/liberals to go in and bat for us like Senator Leyonhjelm that get coverage.

    So a big thank you to Carlo and his editor for this piece.
