I did vote against Senator Leyonhjelm the last time around because it involved tasers and I didn't want them to get into the hands of anybody. I reject Senator Leyonhjelm's recent tweets over the Mandurah rape and murder, when he pointed out that I voted against this identical thing, to protect women. I'm not opposed to pepper spray. I know policewomen who carry pepper spray even though it's illegal. So on this part of it, Senator Leyonhjelm, I will actually be supporting you. But the taser part of it was immoral and wrong.
