11:19 pm
a lot at that time it was a pivotal event to establish saif gunnels for australia the national firearms agreement covers everything from the style of our arms the ownership the responsible use of. and it's very very fun and that will strike some crowd and it keeps us safe. much we want to follow. that is really the nuts and bolts because we think this. one nation is excited about traveling to the u.s. and what a meeting with the n.r.a. might deliver. to get a pretty good thing up we want to get through you're. right $3000000.00
11:20 pm
a week when he said question about statesmanship you might be a good model michael we are going to go you need on your leg a decision today. dixon asks for guidance on how best to deal with the american gun lobby. it's better that we not you know but frankly if ya want to get. pissed off because that's not the reason we got. that i don't want to go out of the absolutely but this right up and up able i'm good i'm even that with the muscle. i asked roger to hopes a chill the n.r.a. is indorsements of pulling henson. we need to want to them this is about the suspect in china getting your medical unit stronger they can actually work with you not it's types in the wider you know it's right because i want the investment you know it's such a shuttle mission i'm going to go watch too much difference maybe. it's the left

11:22 pm
way the in a ray would promote one nation social media content while providing cover for their financial contributions just give them if they have the cottage country it will give them the option. that it never i mean if. this dixon believes that as a veteran politician he knows how to make deals like that have been. on. each experience and work through it in the turn. on the. say oh. it's that and then we got to go. see it in the know it. in all of history there's always been a time in a place when patriots stand up and rise up against the decree of the elites
