NABBED FOR HELPING A NEIGHBOUR
Alice Springs local, Ron, is a licensed shooter who jumped to the aid of a neighbour had been stabbed.
It was dark, the assailant was on the loose in a town dubbed the 'world stabbing capital'. Rather than become the next victim, Ron grabbed his gun to take with him just in case it was needed. The ambulance turned up to help his neighbour, while the police turned their attention to Ron.

The police not only took his guns, but have now hit him with FIVE charges - all because he went to help a neighbour in a dangerous situation.
FIGHTING CHARGES - FOR THE RIGHT REASON
The National Shooting Council wants to help Ron with one of the NT's top barristers, so we're looking for your help to help Ron get off the charges.
Not only that but we want to lobby the Northern Territory Government to allow for the use of firearms where there is a 'reasonable excuse' to do so.
Otherwise why would any shooter want to help their neighbour if the police won't support them?
The law needs to change!
