    Make Some Noise (Part II)

    Make Some Noise (Part II)

    In Victoria, it's easier to kill ducks than to try to stop them being killed. Is that weird? There aren't that many hunters in Australia, and there are less every year. Sometimes it seems like laws don't necessarily favour the majority. Is that true? And if so, why? In this episode we hear from: Luke Milroy, protester Sue Pennecuik, Member of the Legislative Assembly in Victoria Dr Siobhan O'Sullivan, University of New South Wales Bruce Wellington, Operations Manager, Gun Emporium Raf Dimachki - Administrator, Duck and Quail Hunting Facebook page Tex Moyer, Ex-lawyer Tweet @rulebookpodcast Web @ therulebook.xyz Contribute tiny amounts of money @ patreon.com/rulebookpodcast

Hoping for more episodes!

Thoughtful and interesting explanation of Australian law and some of the different impacts upon it. High production values, I'm really enjoying going through the previous episodes.

Poor analysis of the law

The final statement of the subject that he is not going to run a legal argument because there isn't one available for him is ridiculous. The rule of law is an essential part of our democratic society. If the bloke things the legislation is that wrong, he should garner public support and pressure his elected representatives to change the law, not just break the law anyway.
