Drugs and guns in Hughes

By johnboy - 17 November 2013 3

ACT Policing Criminal Investigations officers seized two firearms, ammunition and a quantity of drugs after executing a search warrant at a house in Hughes yesterday evening (Friday, 15 November).

Around 7pm, police gained access to the house with the assistance of the AFP’s Specialist Response Group.

Due to safety concerns, police blocked a number of streets in the immediate area until entry to the house was gained.

During the search of the house, police located two firearms, ammunition and a quantity of illicit drugs. The firearms were rendered safe by officers from ACT Policing’s Firearms Registry before being seized.

A 27-year-old man who was located inside the house at the time of the warrant was arrested due to an outstanding arrest warrant in New South Wales.

The man was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and will face court on Monday, 18 November.

North District Superintendent Brett Kidner said this is another excellent example of ACT Policing’s commitment and ongoing work to remove illicit drugs and firearms from Canberra streets.

Police urge anyone with information on illicit firearms or drugs to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Lot of fire arms taken off the street lately. Good work, the plod.

+1 on that. I’m all in favour of lawful possession of firearms for sporting and recreational purposes. Such lawful ownership provides pleasure to hundreds of thousands of Australians, including me, and harms nobody.

But crims with guns? The only reason they have the weapons is to threaten or kill people. I’d vote for a proposal to have crims with guns shot with their own weapons. Not necessarily fatally, just through the arse cheeks, or the knees, or something similarly painful and inconvenient.

Punishment sounds good on paper, but from pics shown here, I think making the crims fire the dodge weapon and blow up in their face is much safer.

Is it really hundreds of thousands of licensed shooters in Australia? My only contact with fire arms is 4 years in the infantry. I do sometimes miss range shoots and have thought of getting a shooters license, but what can compare to military weapons?
