Re: Those pellet guns on the table are really really scary
Putting aside the story itself, the way it has been reported is really telling! How fast a societal "norm" can shift:
ie, Glock handguns valued at $10K
Military style rifles, including rifles with telescopic sights (who needs that?)
Liscensed to have 71 weapons, and unclear if recent mandatory audit led to raid
Men believed to be holding weapons for others, will be checked against the registry
More and more every year, I am becoming a firm believer in the "don't give an inch, don't negotiate your rights" mentality. Hard to see how the Australians ever get "normal" firearm freedoms back reading something like that.
I certainly don't know the whole story, but absent was any intimation of wrongdoing, conspiracy to commit violence, ties to radical groups, gang affiliation, criminal history, etc. just a huge pile of guns and ammo.
Think I'll send a check to the NRA today, Thanksgiving weekend and all ....
