The rendering of historically significant firearms enert is purely symbolic. It is a profound declaration of conquest over your birthright which is directly connected to the rifle and the side arm. Our culture has been under attack for decades. Don’t check your privilege check your conditioning.

F—king hell when are we going to wake up to the simple fact that the source of all our problems in the West is that all our governments are too big too powerful too dangerous too costly too immoral. The greatest most noble tradition of the West is the struggle against tyranny in all its forms. A man is not free unless he is able to defend his life family friends and property nor is a man free if he is not secure in his papers and private things. The individual is sovereign in the West that is and was always its greatness. We have forgotten how great it is. How profound and how insidious the battle has been waged agaianst us. We are the light of the world, if only we could remember this and hold our heads up high without anger against others but confidence in our own ways again.

Signed.

Would be interesting to know which dirtbag pollie devised this. It might have been a wish-list item for NSW Police, but I would think it would need a ministerial sign-off?
Destruction of our history will achieve nothing, other than to (hopefully) clarify the minds of the constituents whose support they will no doubt seek in the forthcoming election?

I'm not happy giving out my address for a petition.

Why would they need that ?
Gun control requires concentration and a steady hand.

Mate, I used to think like that as well - but then I spent a day with my IT department and they showed me how easy it was to trace an IP address...trust me - they already know more about you than you think they do.

The greater probability is that the French company that owns Lithgow has baulked at the cost of requirements for level 9 security so Lithgow has little option but to take the easiest way out.
In general in NSW there appears to be sudden increase in diligence by the police in doing 'safe storage' inspections which in reality are individual firearms audits.
This seems to coincide with an influx of ex military into the middle ranks of the police service.
This may be fertile ground for theorising, especially considering the turmoil within and relocation of the FAR, but does any body know what is really going on?

To be legally admissable to present to Parliament, your name and address must be supplied..we went through all this in petitioning the closure of the ANZAC Range at Malabar a few years ago. The Petitioner to the NSW Police Minister isn't just some concerned citizen, but those who run the museum itself (and who get not a dollar in Govt funding, let's remember)


This is a bloody outrageous decision, the wilful enforced destruction of an outstanding, world-class collection, which exists to preserve not only our history but to honour those who have fought in our name. If not for political appearances, where is the evidence of "risk" by museums to the community at large? Pathetic.

Exactly.
The guns that put the community at risk are the illegal handguns that corrupt customs officials and others let in for the use of criminals, not historic collections.
What's next, closing the War Memorial so that the vegans don't get scared by the history of which they should be proud?

I won't sign a petition that requires my address, how is this data secured? My name, email and State is all I should need to provide and I would select the "don't show my name" option. No address details at all, ever,

Why are the semi-autos/automatic weapons in the petition link’s photo colored pink? Aren’t you even allowed to show pictures of certain guns in your country? Lol
