In 2014 the NSW Nationals opposed a bill written by NSW Farmers that restored farmers' rights to clear their own land.
Now as the Orange by-election looms they're petitioning their own Government on the issue because the Liberal Party won't let them change the law.
Deputy Premier Troy Grant's rebuke by Mike Baird yesterday just shows how ineffective The Nationals really are in Government.
Mike Baird has also been calling-on other political parties for "doing deals" with the Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party. Robert Borsak's message to the Premier is simple: "Mike Baird: your predecessor did not fare well when he stopped talking to us. Do you really want to do the same?"
The Federal Government's own advice highlights that there's no special public safety concern with the Adler A110 lever-action shotgun.
Changing the shotgun's firearm licence classification from category A to category B makes no practical sense: most firearms owners in New South Wales already have dual category A and B licences.
The National Party just let slip that the greyhound racing ban won't be repealed until the first session of Parliament in 2017.
No certainty will be provided for the industry until the Greyhound Racing Prohibition Bill 2016 is repealed, and this can be easily done in the two remaining sitting weeks before the November 12 Orange by-election.
How many more will face uncertainty while the Government dithers on the details of their greyhound racing ban reversal?
