"Mate I find all this very frustrating and seeing my lifestyle choices impacted (removed and restricted) every day by laws made by these kinds of people really annoys the heck out of me – especially so since I do not go out of my way to break the law or hurt or negatively impact on others. Honestly, I am sick of being dictated to by these immoral hypocrite Marxists; how I should live, what I can and can’t do, how I should morally think even."

Politics For Shooters - Providing Effective Representation
We have long memories of what needs to be done in our fight.
The National Shooting Council was formed in 2019 after a meeting of shooting industry leaders who were unanimous in their vision for a political body that was independent of commercial and sporting interests, and of political parties, to focus solely on the political problems facing shooters.
The NSC has a national executive and sub-committees who lead and deliver on its work-program which has seen successful results from it’s lobbying and political activities, and it’s growing involvement in state, territory and federal elections.
We do not name those on the executive or committees for security reasons but their experience includes administrative & campaigning experience from the ALP, coalition and pro-shooting minor parties.
The priority of the NSC has always been to recruit around political expertise, and work with shooting organisations when there are matters directly affecting their interests.
