“Dodgy firearm ban” prompts 2nd MP to join the NSC
7 June 2020|NSC work program, politicians
LAST WEEK we told you how the Speaker of the NT Parliament, Kezia Purick MP had joined the NSC .
Today we can announce that Northern Victorian MP Mr Tim Quilty has also joined the NSC and become a member.
Mr Quilty, who is a licensed shooter and the LDP representative for Northern Victoria in the Victorian State Parliament, announced his membership in a media release in which he said:
“I was so impressed with the work NSC did taking the fight to VicPol for their dodgy firearm ban that I joined up. Every dealer and shooter knows that the NSC taught the police a lesson, If you try to push the shooting community around, you’ll be in court defending your actions. That’s been a long time coming."
“What sealed joining the NSC for me was seeing that they’re on the front foot. They know that as long as we’re on the front foot we won’t be going backwards. It’s important that as shooters we stick together, but also that we take action to fix the things that are wrong with the system.”
The NSC thanks Mr Quilty and also Kezia Purick their support and welcomes their membership.

We look forward to working with Mr Quilty and other MPs to see that shooters and our sport are given fair treatment and respect from governments and the regulators who control our sport.
NSC will back MPs who help the shooting sports
As we have previously stated, the NSC has a National Election Strategy which will support the election of candidates who support the shooting sports. the NSC will support MPs who back the shooting sports.
The NSC has more meetings scheduled with other MP’s to ensure the voices of shooters across Australia are heard. We will report on our results as they happen so members and supporters know who supports us.
Want to spread the word?
As Mr Quilty has said, joining the NSC is now more important than ever.
The more members we have - whether MPs or ordinary shooters like ourselves - the stronger we become. That is the only way to ensure our voice is heard and to stop the campaign that has been waged against us for far too long.
If you are already an NSC member we thank you and ask if you can share our work with your fellow hunters, club members and shooting friends.
