Who shoots a store? Mysterious bullet holes in Gungahlin

By Barcham - 6 August 2013 66

ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations is investigating bullet holes into a business in Gungahlin overnight (August 6).

About 7.50am this morning, the owner arrived at the business and saw what appeared to be bullet holes in the window of his shop.

Members from Gungahlin Police Station attended and assessed the damage, confirming four bullet holes in to a window and window frame of the Tatts On Tatts Off tattoo shop on Anthony Rolfe Avenue.

AFP Forensic Services were called to the shop and are currently processing the scene.

Detectives from Criminal Investigations are conducting enquiries into the incident.

Anyone who may have seen or heard anything suspicious overnight on Anthony Rolfe Avenue is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

What I am saying is whenever some egghead in NSW shoots up one of their enemies houses with an illegal firearm, the firearm laws are scrutinised or tightened.

Pretty soon you won’t be able to shoot up tattoo shops any more, you’ll have to go out into the national parks to shoot things.

Are you suggesting that I would use a firearm in a public place even though its against the law to carry a loaded firearms in that public place?

Oh, the NP thing is off the table now BTW.

Nah, it’s not, the trial begins in October. Hopefully nobody will be silly enough to sign up. Let the NSW Govt and NPWS continue to shell out millions for pest control. They don’t deserve any help after their deception.

Ahh, I thought it was after the debacle with the head of the Game Council. I thought the shift had gone to invited pest control runs that were controlled by the NPWS by invite and you were only allowed to shoot what they said you could. As in if you were there to control pigs you could not shoot the fox that just popped it head up in from of you.

Having said that I had not looked too far into it as I dont have a R class licence, I was looking into it though. Its not high on my agenda as I only have clibers that shoot tins, rabbits & foxes 🙂

It appears no one has told the NPWS or the Minister for the Environment.

This statement is full to the brim with wtf.

Customs said that 1100 firearms detected in 2012 is a doubling, and a result of ‘intelligence-led approach to targeting people and goods arriving into Australia.’
(http://www.customs.gov.au/site/130117mediarelease_intelligence.asp)

Australian police estimate that the numbers stolen per year is 1500
(https://www.anzpaa.org.au/current-initiatives/operation-unification-illicit-firearms)

I thought the real issue was the thousands of firearms floating around from the “grey market” from when restrictions where less onerous? Given that firearms are effective even when they are really old, the year to year sourcing would be irrelevant.

Watch the backlash against responsible firearms owners like in NSW……….

Are you saying it is responsible to shoot up a tattoo shop?

Or are you assuming that the weapon used was imported illegally rather than stolen?

Well, considering that firearms thefts are pretty low, most drive-by shootings aren’t done with bolt action rifles, and less than 3% of cargo coming into the country is ever inspected by customs, I’d say the odds are heavily in favor of it being an illegally imported firearm.

Customs seize ~7000 firearms a year, while inspecting <3% of cargo entering Australia.
Around 700 firearms are stolen every year. The vast majority being single shot, bolt action rifles…

The numbers speak for themselves.

Or a responsible gun owner exercising his constitutional right to bear arms, and totally ignorant of the fact that no such right applies in Australia

What I am saying is whenever some egghead in NSW shoots up one of their enemies houses with an illegal firearm, the firearm laws are scrutinised or tightened. It makes ot harder for someone who wants to go target shooting, hunting or pest control to go about their business.

The latest round of recording is a perfect example, every ammunition transaction has to be recorded in NSW. The log is collated by the gun shop. What does the gun shop do with it? Nothing, it sits under the counter until someobody MAY come and look at it. There is no database that is used to record this info in case the bullets bought in the south coast are used to shoot up a school on the north coast.

Its not the normal firearm licence holder that is doing this stuff, it the illegally imported/stolen firearms that cause the issues.

Geee… I wonder if this tattoo shop has neglected to pay for the right to open to the local Rebels chapter…. Low life scum.
