From the Land Down Under Herald Sun:
POLICE have vowed to “dry up the supply” of guns and ammunition in the northwestern suburbs after the past week’s triple shooting that left two men dead and another in hospital.
Raids yesterday morning by detectives working in Taskforce Acer 17 netted firearms police feared could be passed to criminals.
The weapons were held legally by registered gun owners, but police intelligence revealed 20 had “connections to family or associates who were persons of interest to the Acer Taskforce team”.
Officers simultaneously hit 21 properties at 8am to ensure the licence holders were complying with all conditions.
A total of 21 guns – including 15 shotguns and ammunition for an AK47 rife – were seized.
So, if you happen to know a criminal in your neighborhood, the police can come and take away your guns? Ain’t Social Engineering wonderful?
