In the next episode of Gun Control Australia’s “exploit Las Vegas” agenda, they took to the ABC, among other publications, with this about how many firearms are stored in each suburb and how the sky is apparently falling:
“Private gun owners are stockpiling arsenals of more than 300 firearms in suburban homes in some parts of the country, according to new data obtained by the Greens. The trend is thought to be driving an overall increase in gun ownership nationally.
Gun-control advocates say the private caches are “honeypots for criminals”, and also pose a public safety risk if their owners become mentally unstable. The most comprehensive figures are in New South Wales, where figures obtained under Freedom of Information laws from NSW Police reveal the top 100 private arsenals across the state.”
This data is not new, having been released almost a year ago by David Shoebridge and the fifth columnists at the ABC are making it clear whose side they are on, if they hadn’t already.
Shoebridge also whinged about how he couldn’t get access to the number of legally owned firearms within the community within different states, but doesn’t seem to mind when Gun Control Australia repeatedly deny requests to disclose membership and funding sources as they did at the last Senate Inquiry.
The Greens and GCA want a “special blitz on licence holders” and now also want Police to conduct pre-purchase inspections. Cool story, I’m sure they will appreciate the extra workload on top of their lack of resources. And if the Greens and GCA are worried about “mental instability” then they can start with some introspection.
The Las Vegas card was pulled yet again. Totally different country, different laws and a whole lot of questions still being asked about Stephen Paddock and the entire event including possible second shooters. Further, you can only use one firearm at a time. Automatic firearms and bump fire stocks are not legal in Australia but that doesn’t stop them being acquired either – ask Rick Maddison how he got his.
In summary, Las Vegas is not at all relevant to Australia but that won’t stop GCA and the Greens getting mileage out of it.
If Shoebridge is upset about storage laws then he can also ask about where Victoria Police’s 200 firearms went, why Queensland Police seem to keep losing firearms and ammunition and just how Barry’s Firearms was knocked off despite having the toughest storage requirements. We listed a number of facilities broken into in the past year which have the storage GCA want and there has been deafening silence from them on that, for obvious reasons.
And of course, this “special blitz” won’t cover any of the people using their firearms incorrectly in certain suburbs of Sydney, nor will it cover any of the overwhelming majority of shipping containers and international mail coming through our borders unchecked.
This was all part of the Greens and Gun Control Australia’s predictable plan – ie complain about firearm numbers, falsely claim that thefts have increased (they haven’t as proved by an entire Senate Inquiry) and then use them to step by step lobby for firearm limits.
Not once did the ABC question how David Shoebridge releasing this information wasn’t putting firearm owners at risk of theft. Nor did they ask if any of these firearm owners had used their firearms illegally – because they haven’t and because their ABC couldn’t spin it as such.
This is also part of a larger push for a national firearm registry, just like the ones both Canada and New Zealand got rid of because they weren’t worth the cost or effort for no benefit. It’s pretty obvious to see why GCA have done this on the back of Globalist Mal wanting states to hand over their driver’s licence databases.
All this is also in part an acknowledgement and a whinge about how legally owned firearms are increasing, firearm ownership as a whole is increasing and strangely enough there’s no correlating massive explosion in shootings with legal firearms.
Basically, this is Sam Lee and Shoebridge’s tears.
Be right back, going to go buy another gun now.
