PART 4 - POSSESSION AND USE OF WEAPONS
(from pages 53 & 54 - Weapons Act 1990)

Division 1-General

50 Possession of Weapons

A person may possess a weapon only-

(a) if the person is authorised to possess the weapon under a licence or permit to acquire; or

(b) with other lawful authority, justification or excuse.

In relation to the right to own and operate a firearm (amongst other implements), the Queensland Government has a statute law called the Weapons Act 1990. This statute has divided this right into two distinct categories, being:

(a) if the person is authorised to possess the weapon under a licence or permit to acquire; or (which are Man's laws)

(b) with other lawful authority, justification or excuse. (which are God's Laws, i.e. Bible Codified Law - Bible based rights)

Non-Sovereign people, non-Christians and people ignorant of their Bible based common-law rights fall into category (a), and thus require a permit / licence to own and operate firearms etc.

Sovereign people, Christians and those people who know and claim their Bible based common-law rights fall into category (b), and are thus exempt from the conditions imposed in (a), but are instead bound by their Bible based common-law 'Duty Of Care Obligations' towards mankind.

While statute laws may deem owning weapons without a 'permit' / 'licence' as 'illegal', statute laws cannot make it 'unlawful.' What is 'lawful' in our Creator's eyes is not always 'legal' as far as the State is concerned, thus the importance of separation of Church and State.

When it comes to law, we must always remember, "Is man's law above God's Law, or is God's Law above man's law?" A fool would apply affirmation to the former. The indisputable hierarchy flow of power is as follows:

  1. God (The Creator)
  2. Man (created by God)
  3. Government (administration created by man to serve man. An inert abstraction and transitory mental contrivance.)

Any other combination results in chaos and always ends in a fit of tyranny, sooner or later, to which history amply testifies of.

So the Weapons Act 1990 (p54, PART 4 - POSSESSION AND USE OF WEAPONS, Division 1-General, 50 Possession of Weapons), "(b) with other lawful authority, justification or excuse." testifies to our Bible based common-law rights as follows:

  1. In relation to "with other lawful authority,.." Our Creator God is the "…other lawful authority." In fact He is "the Lawful Authority" over and above all and everything, especially above man's laws; and is the Lawful Authority that supersedes the conditions as set out in (a) p54 above,

  2. In relation to "…justification." our God Given common-law rights, inherited by mankind since the first created man Adam (our greatest grandfather), are our justification to ignore the conditions as set out in (a) p54 above,

  3. In relation to "…excuse," Sovereign people, Christians and those people who know and claim their Bible based common-law rights are excused from all repugnant statute laws such as (a) p54 above, which are contradictory to God's Immutable Laws, as enshrined within the great Law Book - The Holy Bible (KJV).

This does not abrogate our 'Duty Of Care Obligations' to our fellow man, as summarised in the last 6 Commandments of the Decalogue, Exodus 20:12-17.

Take note that every judge in Australia, on the 3rd Monday of July each year, attends a church and swears an oath to uphold the laws as contained in the Holy Bible.

Our Bible codified rights are not only recognised by the Weapons Act 1990, but are also recognised by other laws and enactment's as well, for example:

  • The Queensland Imperial Acts Application Act 1984, Schedule 1, Section 5, which acknowledges that the Imperial Enactment of 1689 English Bill of Rights (which is based on Bible based common-law) is continued in force in Australia, states: "That the subjects which are Protestants, may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions, and as allowed by law."

  • 1297 Magna Carta...

Question: "How long has Bible based common-law been around?"

Answer: "How long has the Law of Gravity been in existence?"

Question: "Or put another way, how long has our Creator been in existence?"

Answer: "Forever!"

The English Bill of Rights, Magna Carta laws etc. do not "give" us the right to own and operate firearms, they simply "testify / acknowledge" our inalienable God given right to own and operate firearms / weapons and our right to defend ourself from harm.

Here is the real and absolute Authority and real Laws in relation to this matter, direct from our Creator Himself:

  • "When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace..." Creator of the Universe, Luke 11:21,
  • "...and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Creator of the Universe, Luke 22:36.

Be warned: signing a Firearm's Licence or Permit is signing a contract with the state, which means that you give your consent to and are bound by the conditions contained within that "contract," "licence" or "permit." Owning a Firearm's Licence can often abrogate your Bible based common-law rights to firearm ownership. If you don't like the contract - don't sign it!

Applying for a Firearm's Licence or Permit is just as absurd as trotting off to your local Police Station and applying for a licence each time you wished to copulate with your spouse - or to walk on the footpath - or breathe God's air - or drive a vehicle!

"...choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD." Joshua 24:15

The Australian government has no legal right to enforce category (a) p54 of the Weapons Act 1990 upon Christians, Sovereign people and those who claim their Bible based common-law rights; this is acknowledged by the Australian government in category (b) p54 of the Weapons Act 1990. For the Australian government (or any government in any country) to do otherwise would be vexatious in nature, a denial of natural justice, tyrannical, and an enactment to be blatantly ignored.

"The citizen is obliged in conscience not to follow the directives of civil authorities when they are contrary to the moral order, to the fundamental rights of persons or the teachings of the Gospel. Refusing obedience to civil authorities, when their demands are contrary to those of an upright conscience, finds its justification in the distinction between serving God and serving the political community." CAT 2242, Roman Catholic Church.

"And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's. And they marvelled at him." Mark 12:17 KJV.

When citizens are under the oppression of a public authority which oversteps its competence, they should still not refuse to give or do what is objectively demanded of them by the common good; but it is legitimate for them to defend their own rights and those of their fellow citizens against the abuse of this authority within the limits of the natural law and the Law of the Gospel. (Matthew 22:21; Acts 5:29).

William Wallace

The world runs on the initiative of about 5% of the people; the rest need orders. The consensus of the other 95% on the subject of one's relationship with: government - banks - tax agencies - courts and corporations (all separate realms) is defective in that such inert abstractions have been accorded superiority over living beings. Governments are transitory mental contrivances set up by the clever few for the purpose of living off the efforts of the trusting many - a generalization, yes, but also the truth.
