‘When I Asked Him To Visit The NRA, I Meant The National Retailers Association:’ Hanson
“It’s all a big misunderstanding,” she claims.
Leaders of One Nation are in damage control after revelations senior party figure James Ashby sought millions of dollars from America’s National Rifle Association to weaken Australia’s gun laws.
“It’s all a misunderstanding,” claims One Nation Leader Pauline Hanson in a press conference this morning.
“When I asked James Ashby to visit the NRA, I meant the National Retailers Association in Queensland. I wanted him to tell them about One Nation’s policies to help struggling retailers.”
Instead Ashby was recorded by an undercover al-Jazeera reporter asking the National Rifle Association in the USA for a $20 million dollar donation in a bid to seize the balance of power and weaken Australia’s gun laws.
“I’m sorry for the misunderstanding,” says James Ashby. “It’s an easy mistake. I remember when you could buy guns and ammunition at Kmart and I’d love to know why we can’t bring that back.”
