Senior One Nation figures James Ashby and Steve Dickson have been caught on camera seeking millions of dollars of political donations from US gun rights group the National Rifle Association in a bid to seize the balance of power in the Australian parliament and weaken Australia’s gun laws. An al-Jazeera journalist posing as pro-gun campaigner used secret cameras showing the pair endorsing NRA counter-attack lines in the event of a gun massacre. NRA media liaison Lars Dalseide offers advice on what to say in response to mass shootings, suggesting pro-gun politicians should 'shame' opponents with lines such as 'How dare you stand on the graves of those children to put forward your political agenda?' Dickson replies: 'I love that.'
