The Current State of Airsoft law in Australia

This article seeks to explore the history of airsoft and firearms legislation in Australia, discuss the current laws on airsoft weapons in Australia and whether or not they are justified, while touching upon international laws, and finally, what can be done to change this state of affairs for all Australians.     In order to discuss airsoft law in Australia, it must be noted that in Australia airsoft legislation is intrinsically tied to the broader topic of firearm legislation, more so than in many other countries, and thus this will largely focus on the history of  Australian firearm legislation as a whole.

The Other Side of Anzac

The Other Side of Anzac

Today is Anzac Day. Even locked in our homes, the powers that be have decreeded the State Approved Method in which Anzac will be respected. Dawn services will be conducted on driveways with tablets and radios set to the ABC coverage of the Dawn Service. They will be told what to do and when to do it. God forbid anyone commemorate in their own way, after all. We will be told about the exceptional courage and bravery and sacrifice of Australian troops, and certainly Australian troops were and are brave, and did and do sacrifice. But there will be uncomfortable little truths airbrushed out of the narrative. The First World War, on paper, ende

They Fixed It, Now It Sucks

They Fixed It, Now It Sucks

I had initially avoided the Eclipse move because I didn't like the redesign. The user interface was confusing, comments were weirdly formatted and tracking reply chains was needlessly complicated, and the text felt like I was reading the Large Print edition. In fact, despite the end UI looking dramatically pared down, the back-end felt more taxing on the browser. More recently, I avoided it because user front pages and galleries wouldn't load properly and I literally couldn't scroll down. I had hoped, given Dan & Co's threat that the old site would be axed, they would only commit to forced resettlement once the basic design was functionally

Update Journal XXX/III/MMXX

Update Journal XXX/III/MMXX

Sorry for the lack of any word from here, I'm putting an update out there for anyone who's watching me. It's been somewhat busy here, doing work training and assessment from home, including some work on mapping the virus spread in Australia through last week, taking care of my family at home and making sure stuff is stocked (though not hoarded!), as well as a pre-existing Total War addiction on the side in the off-time, haven't exactly given me as much time for coming on to DA or other places, and I do feel bad about that. I hope that in these times that everyone's looking after themselves and the ones that they care about there, if you are

Soundtrack Meme for XXXI/X/MMXVII

Courtesy of ~E350tb (https://www.deviantart.com/e350tb) Now, apart from the fact that it's been over two years now since I last did one of these, in all honesty I also just wanted to put something new up on here. And any comments I put on will be spur of the moment, so probably don't take them too seriously, particularly in my sleepy state atm. _---_ IF YOUR LIFE WAS A MOVIE, WHAT WOULD THE SOUNDTRACK BE? _---_ *~* RULES *~* [1] Get out / open your music player (iPod, MP3 Player, etc.) / music library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player etc.). iTunes as usual then [2] Put it on shuffle.

I WAS.. TAGGED! BY ~E350tb (https://www.deviantart.com/e350tb) OF ALL PEOPLE! Harrumph! DA RULEZ: 1. You MUST post these rules. (Alright then.) 2. Answer the ten questions the person who tagged you made, then make up your own 10 questions for the people you tag to answer. (I will answer the ten questions, yes.) 3. Choose ten people and put their usernames on this journal. (Nah, don't feel like tagging anyone.) 4. Go to their pages and inform them that they have been TAGGED! (See 2.) 5. DO NOT say something stupid like "If you don't do this, I will cut off your fucking head." Do not act like Trevor Philips (Who ever the hell that is). (Okay jeeze! I won't go all psych

Greetings Nohomers,

Have you brought any ancient tech for me to displaaAAAAY?

I'd wondered how they could top Khaine's Gate... this went above and beyond.
Yeah, that was my absolute favourite episode thus far, not only getting to see the Mechanicus in all its glory, the epic display of politics, and then... the Dark Angels show up.

How are the fires doing, as the rain dampened them out, more importantly are you and yours all safe?
Indeed, the ones up in Queensland ended up finishing right before Christmas, and this past week we've actually being having our first thunderstorms of the rainy season, and about 3 months later than typical.
Further south in pretty much all the southern states are having fires somewhere, Sydney isn't under siege anymore, but the mountain regions are all still fire hit, as is the eastern Victoria and parts of South and Western Australia, but the aforementioned rain and thunderstorms have thankfully been reaching those areas and taking at least some of the edge off.

It's about time the rains came then! Mother nature has taken a hand for the better then!?
Glad you are safe, has all the smug gone? Dust storms seem to be another problem!?
