Australians should have the right to defend themselves!
Taxed to Death

Recently, there has been a lot of focus on the right to self-defence in Australia. Did you know that Australians cannot carry the means to protect themselves, like pepper spray or tasers?

Each state imposes hefty penalties for carrying non-lethal weapons while far more lethal weapons, such as knives and bats, are readily avaliable for anyone to purchase.

It's time to decriminalise non-lethal self-defence items so Australians can defend themselves and avoid becoming the victims of criminal assault and government indifference.
