AHP #151 – Guns In Australia With Mark Latham

 Mark Latham has had a long career in politics and political commentary which has spanned over 30 years. Mark was the former federal leader of the Labor Party that lost the election to John Howard in 2004. Mark formed the outsiders after being let go by Sky News for certain remarks that free speech opponents didn’t like. He has become a political commentator and a proponent of free speech in Australia and believes the Labor party are only about identity politics.

Mark Latham shares his opinions on:

  • Free speech and the nanny state
  • His thoughts on the Labor Party in 2017
  • Joining The Rebel Media
  • Mark Lathams Outsiders
  • Firearms registration
  • US school shootings
  • Why status quo gun laws should remain

There’s more, but we’ll let you discover it as you listen to this new episode of the Australian Hunting Podcast.

AHP #22 – SSAA NSW Executive Director Diana Melham

AHP022 - Diana MelhamExecutive Director of the Sporting Shooters Association NSW Diana Melham joins us to discuss the organisation and its future direction in NSW.

The SSAA NSW has almost a 50,000 strong membership base of shooters and hunters who frequent ranges across the state. I did ask Diana Melham some hard questions on why ranges are not being able to use firearms over 3000 foot lbs, and the reasoning behind some of these restraints. Ranges such as Silverdale Rifle Range, Wagga Wagga Shooting Range and Port Macquarie’s Shooting Range are in the sights of the NSW firearms registry, and their “new” and interesting interpretation of range templates here in NSW.

The SSAA puts on a Firearms and Hunting Shot Show in Sydney and Melbourne. The show alternates years in each state which draws thousands of keen hunters, shooters and fishos from around the country.
I have been critical in the past of the SSAA and its directions on some issues in the past. But I have also praised the SSAA on some good things they have achieved over the last 10 years. The time is now for the SSAA to become a political force in the firearms industry, just like the NRA is in America.
