Joe Monks, Woodburn
I express my concern at the support that the Nationals are giving to the lifting of import restrictions on the lever action shotgun.
There could only be one reason. Support of the weapons industry. Shades of the power of the gun lobby in the USA.
This weapon could well end up in the hands of a demented individual in a shopping centre and result in multiple deaths.
The dangers of misuse far outweigh the needs of any individual to fire off more rounds in a short space of time.
