This combo's called a Saturday Night Special: "During a search of the vehicle, officers found a loaded .30-06 calibre Mauser rifle in the boot of the vehicle, ammunition, 26g of methylamphetamine, and drug paraphernalia." https://www.police.nsw.gov.au/news/news_article?sq_content_src=%2BdXJsPWh0dHBzJTNBJTJGJTJGZWJpenByZC5wb2xpY2UubnN3Lmdvdi5hdSUyRm1lZGlhJTJGNzY3NTYuaHRtbCZhbGw9MQ%3D%3D …
And what sounds like a suicide by cop: https://www.police.sa.gov.au/sa-police-news-assets/front-page-news/man-shot-by-police-at-seaton …
Aussie home invasions sound like fun: "Just after 10.30pm on Fri 24 May, 6 men wearing balaclavas allegedly forced their way into a Parkfield Loop home & confronted the occupants. [...] The suspects have then fired 2 shots at the man before driving off" https://www.police.sa.gov.au/sa-police-news-assets/front-page-news/firearms-incident-northern-suburbs …
> "Serious firearms offences" > "neighbour firing a BB gun" > "one pellet striking a man in the leg" > "charged with [...] possession of unregistered firearms & discharge a firearm to harm another person" Australia certainly has a flair for hyperbole. https://www.police.sa.gov.au/sa-police-news-assets/front-page-news/man-arrested-after-bb-gun-fired-at-ethelton …
Liberal government: “Only the RCMP should determine the classification of firearms because they are the experts” Also Liberal government: “We’re going to ban AR-15’s by OIC, bypassing the legislative process” #NoGunBan #NoAR15Ban #TriggerChange #VoteThemOut #Cdnpoli

The EU Weapons Directive will no doubt play its part in people not being able to defend themselves against these ‘dangerous’ people/things/trends. Thanks, @JunckerEU!
We had a lot of responsible, licensed Canadian firearm owners visit us today and purchase their first AR-15, saying @BillBlair sent them. We have more ARs that need loving homes in the hands of the least likely citizens to commit a crime in Canada. #BillSentMe @TWilsonOttawa

[Switzerland] “Take a tour of the shooting range [25/50/300m] in your town with your family! It's free! Have fun!” Feldschiessen [German name] is the largest shooting competition on the planet, last I checked.
But they won’t release their illegal guns in the UK estimate because “it might jeopardise ongoing operations...” yeah, right how could it possibly do that - it’s a number...? They won’t release it because it’d scare the living shit out of the UK population @NABIS_UK @sajidjavid

So, when New Zealand gives their inquiry into their new, rushed-through gun laws something like 2 days of hearings to deal with 14,000 submissions, the media clap like trained circus seals & wonder why Ardern doesn't win the Nobel Prize. Cry me a river...
Just in case @9NewsQueensland deletes this later, they're doing a very balanced, calm, non-hyperbolic job of covering the ongoing legal machinations in Qld of the Wedgetail pistol (not actually pictured, but whatever). This is naked firearm racism. Not all black guns are evil.
I guess I'd prefer this eco-warrior finger wagging bullshit than his Channel 9 colleagues calling a legally acquired $6000 AUD Category H pistol a 'murder weapon that's legal in Queensland', but that's just me.
