Obviously not everyone got the memo.
The first week of the national firearm amnesty has not seen a break in gun crime – colour us surprised.
A man in Coburg was shot in the leg outside a motel in the early hours of Sunday morning after a dispute. This was followed on by the shooting death of a 19 year old on the Central Coast just 24 hours later.
Then, a couple were held at gunpoint in their Gold Coast home during a home invasion. This was after a Gold Coast couple were attacked with a machete in another home invasion. A man held up a supermarket in Kangaroo Point with a rifle and then a Cranbourne family were the victims of a ‘random’ drive by shooting on their family home.
It’s also noted that the Australian Government has the press flooded with firearm related stories to try and keep it on the public consciousness. Rebecca Peters reared her Soros funded head again to tell us all how she’s apparently only one National Firearms Agreement away from putting Central American drug cartels out of business. Good luck with that one Rebecca, Knights Templar, MS13 and Sinaloa Cartel generally don’t recognise Order of Australia medals.
There was this completely irrelevant story floating around about a firearm accident from Florida. And 60 Minutes did a story on the city of Chicago and it’s gang violence problem, while failing to mentioning the stringent firearm laws in Illinois, the demographic doing most of the shooting on the South Side of Chicago or the fact that just 2% of the counties in the US are responsible for 51% of the murders. ‘Amazing’ coincidence on the timing and relevance.
One week down, eleven to go.
