Today (Australia Day), Walter Mikac, Port Arthur survivor, gun control advocate and founder of the Alannah & Madeline Foundation has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia. Some media coverage picked up the Foundation’s actual charitable work for children, but most of the media focused solely on gun control. Television and the papers are onto it, promoting the supposed good works of gun control and advancing the myth that having every single air rifle or bolt-action rim-fire rifle registered gives us ‘public safety’.
Let’s remember the Heroes of Gun Control this Australia Day
In the 1970s, criminologist Professor Paul Wilson committed a series of pedophilic offences for which he was only recently convicted. During that decade Wilson had extensive contact with Howard-Osborne, a Queensland public servant who committed decades of acts with children. After Howard-Osborne committed suicide, Wilson wrote a book defending the Howard-Osborne’s sexual interest in boys and arguing there should be no age of consent. Any Google search of the news can reveal this for you.
By the early 1990s, Wilson turn his attention to gun control. You can still read his 1993 paper here.
Prof Wilson: the anti-gun pedophile who wanted to ‘market’ gun control
Interestingly, the 13 page paper from 1993 is not about gun safety, it’s about marketing gun control:
…the analysis here is on what aspects of marketing practices the gun lobby has successfully employed compared to those in favour of stricter gun control. The consequences of the successful marketing of a cause such as the gun issue are reflected in both legislation and social behaviour. Politicians will legislate for greater gun control…
It was coauthored with a business school academic. Interestingly, Wilson detested Gympie, which he decried as ‘Hell Town’, writing in 1997:
the most undesirable place to live in all of Australia, full of hypocrisy, sexual violence, fear, drugs, murder, incest, pack rape, economic stagnation and rabid right-wing gun fanatics.
As far as sexual offences go, we can say Wilson knew from personal experience what he was writing about. Paul Wilson: you’re the Gun Control Australian of the Decade.
Does the Gun Control crowd still sympathise with pedophiles?
As The Truth About Guns pointed out two years ago, Salon.com (a left-leaning, pro-Gun Control news website) published pedophile-sympathetic articles (for example: I’m a pedophile, not a monster) on the same day it attacked then-presidential candidate Donald Trump’s stance on firearms.
It gets better: Salon was shamed into deleting all articles by the pedophile author. You can still find the disgusting remains of Salon’s pedophile-supporting history through Google, but we couldn’t stomach reading past the first couple of sentences.
Why is there an enduring sympathy for pedophiles amongst the Gun Control crowd? Whatever the reason is, they sure don’t like the millions of law-abiding firearm owners who aren’t hurting anybody.
