Fact: something did this, it did not ‘just happen’. And a typo is very unlikely.
Fact: letters don’t work. We can go back and forth on this, but they don’t and we know this. QLD gun shops were re-opened for one of two reasons, threat of legal action or lockdown control simply expired. Again, zero to do with letters.
Take all the letters, combine them, multiply them and then you get near the volume of what would have been sent with Adler magazine tube capacity limits. And it did nothing. In fact, lobbying, deals and threats not to vote for something or other (I don’t recall now) by the Liberal Democrats was the only thing that got the import ban lifted and dare I say paved the way for every new Turkish shotgun we see today.
If other strategies cannot be discussed, that’s fine, I am happy to leave it at that, but we all know the only thing these letters are good for is when the recipient was the last man to a supermarket, after toilet paper panic buying.
