If it is the position of the government that they will never water down Australia's gun laws, then they will vote for this motion. If it is the position of the government that they will not trade the gun laws to win a vote on the ABCC, they will vote for this motion. If they will not vote for this motion, then you can see why. The member for Warringah was on Twitter only minutes ago saying:

Disturbing to see reports of horse-trading on gun laws.

If those reports are inaccurate, then every member of this House will vote for this motion. If those reports are accurate and gun laws are being traded for a vote in the Senate, then there will be a decision in this House in a few moments time.
