Former PM Rudd was interviewed by a US journalist. The story called, Why Not Change The Second Amendment? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ErJOSxjO9w
Mr Rudd said during the interview, “Unless the British come back you don’t need a semi-automatic to defend the country”. At about the time of the meeting, Forbes magazine published a story titled, 1.6 Billion Rounds Of Ammo For Homeland Security? It’s Time For A National Conversation.” In addition to 1.6 billion rounds, not millions, but billions, Homeland Security acquired 450 million cartridges of hollow-points for handguns. Hollow-point ammunition is expensive, not used for target practice.

What is interesting about Homeland Security is that it operates on an encrypted narrow band FM frequency that not even the local police or the US military can access, they are completely a Stand-alone military force.
Because of secrecy, the makeup of Homeland Security is unclear in terms of actually how many US citizens make up the ranks of this armed force? Heavily armed paramilitary mercenaries from the feared Blackwater private security firm, infamous for their work in Iraq, were openly patrolling the streets of New Orleans in 2005 servicing their contract with the Department of Homeland Security. The Continental United States (CONUS) are primarily corporate mercenaries. These security companies are big businesses operating all around the world, and there use by Homeland Security raises concerns for the American people.
Since the late 1980s, those behind Rex have been preparing for mass civil disturbances in response to illegitimate governance, and declining social and economic wellbeing. Those that control government through the financial system of things have been preparing for another civil war. There over 800 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) Martial Law camps. All it would take is a presidential signature on a proclamation and the attorney general’s signature.
Currently, the largest of these facilities is just outside of Fairbanks, Alaska. The Alaskan facility is a massive (so-called) mental health facility that can hold approximately 2 million people.
Will the current situation of wide-spread civil unrest be the justification statement for Martial Law? The EXECUTIVE ORDERS 10990, 10995, 10997, 10998, 10999, etc. of martial law includes: government take control of all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports; seize and control the communication media; control all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals; control all food resources and farms; and direction civilians into work brigades under armed supervision (perhaps CONUS).
Essentially there is no US Congress or constitution, and the Republic of the United States becomes the equivalent of the CCP in China.
A recent example of Martial Law
The Hugo Chavez regime banned private firearm ownership in 2012. The seizure has played a role in keeping civilians imprisoned by the socialist Maduro regime. In 2014, demonstrations against totalitarianism occurred and 15 unarmed Venezuela was shot dead by the State’s paramilitary police. At various times since 2014 outraged citizens have protested in the streets demanding an end to tyranny, lawless government, socialism, and wild inflation.
Reported death-tolls vary widely. Virtually every independent press outlet has been shut down. Venezuela is a modern-day example of an imbalance in power between the State and the people. The power that has come out of the barrel of firearms aimed at the people by the State.
Democracy at Risk – Australia:
Nazism required mass susceptibility to “ideological fantasy” and only through conformity was this possible. After the war, John F. Kennedy said, “Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
According to Democracy 2025 (https://www.democracy2025.gov.au/about.html) Australians have grown more distrustful of politicians, sceptical about democratic institutions and disillusioned with democratic processes. […] By 2025 if nothing is done and current trends continue, fewer than 10 percent of Australians will trust their politicians and political institutions — resulting in ineffective and illegitimate government, and declining social and economic wellbeing.
Perhaps one of the reasons people were joining sporting shooters is that maybe one day there will either be another war, or an illegitimate government rules resulting in tyranny. When one looks around the world the greatest injustices done to the people are by Governments that don’t allow very many of their people to have firearms least they may become an armed resistance to their rule.
National Security Aspect:
The estimated population for Asia in 2016 was 4.4 billion. If a nuclear weapon was used somewhere in ASIA, how many of the approximate 600 million people living outside of China would migrate south to avoid small wars, famine, and disease. Perhaps ten percent maybe twenty percent?
As a passive invasion that is 60 to 120 million people. As was seen in Europe young and strong individuals, mostly men will make it to our shores that are seen as a safe haven. Do we have the food, shelter, and law and order resources to meet their needs? Very unlikely. Would chaos, unlawfulness, and mob rule result if their needs were not meet? Absolutely.
Add to this one in a thousand probability of a passive invasion with the odds steadily increasing in the past decade, is the fact there is a country in our region that has a standing army of more than a million soldiers. Their intentions in the Pacific are unclear to us? Former PM Rudd said, “Tanks don’t cross borders anymore.” However, they still make tanks and a lot of them along with the ships and aircraft to carry them anywhere in the world. The question, would the US provide significant support? can be answered by another question, did Great Britain come to the aid of Singapore in WW2? It is very likely the US will have their own problems to deal with.
At the 2019 Boxing day cricket in Melbourne, there were about twenty thousand more cricket fans than our entire army and its reserves put together. The only organised group of people with significant numbers of operational and retired police, military and other professionals with specialist knowledge and experiences that could train an army on short notice are the sporting shooters. Why demonise those that represent our plan B if we are invaded by a foreign country or we need to quickly restore law and order should 60 to 120 million people arrive on our shores.
