Guns rolling in for the amnesty

By johnboy 14 April 2009 23

Simon Corbell has announced that at the midpoint of his firearm amnesty 66 guns have been surrendered including 9 prohibited weapons:

    “I am very encouraged to see Canberrans getting involved in the amnesty and continuing to make our community a safe place to live,” said Mr Corbell.

    “Often these firearms are not obtained for illegal purposes, but are simply discovered in old homes or properties.

    “66 firearms in a small jurisdiction like the ACT is a positive half way result,” he said.

    Some of the prohibited firearms that have been surrendered include:

    — A Gevarm AR7 rifle;
    — M1 Carbine semi automatic rifle;
    — Pistol Fabrique Nationale Baby Browning;
    — Semi automatic Single Barrel Shotgun Sportco 103.

The amnesty runs until 31 May.

Oh well it’s not even fun if you are all just going to be silly about it.

Fine, I can be silly too.

Deckard – I don’t think it necessarily has to be a conspiracy. It does have the side effect of taking away the last resort defence against Government tyranny.

Just ask the jews in Germany, oh you can’t.

YES GODWIN’S LAW! If you lads won’t be rational, then neither shall I!

Actually the Nazi’s did disarm the citizenry. And many jewish ghetto’s did take up arms in resistance. Some even lasted a week or two. Little bit of trivia for ya there.
