More guns than people in some NSW suburbs

Article from: The Daily Telegraph
Exclusive by Rhett Watson, Political Reporter
March 09, 2009 12:00am

GUNS now outnumber people in some areas of NSW as the latest Firearms Registry figures show alarming local spikes in weapon numbers, including in Sydney's crime hotspot suburbs.

A Daily Telegraph investigation into the steadily growing NSW firearms stockpile shows suburbs such as Auburn, Bankstown, Chester Hill, Bligh Park, Surry Hills and Kellyville have all significantly increased their guns in just three years.

Gun lobby experts put some of the growth down to dealers and distributors registering new stock - but in many cases there is no explanation other than strong growth.

In country localities such as Rylstone and Geurie in the state's Central West and Bendemeer in the Northern Tablelands there are more guns than people. Rylstone, population 798 in the most recent census, has 1276 firearms in the postcode.

Statewide, registered firearms have increased from 650,185 in May 2005 to 687,200 as of December 30.

The most recent count shows the state's gun stockpile includes 489,348 rifles, 61,767 single barrel shotguns, 49,818 side-by-side single barrel shotguns, 37,273 under and over double barrel shotguns, 24,468 pistols and 13,307 revolvers. There were even 9 walking stick, or cane, guns registered.

A postcode breakdown of ownership figures as of June 30 shows the growth to be strong in certain localities, sometimes many hundreds of per cent.

The gun capital of metropolitan Sydney is Bligh Park in Sydney's west, home to 4728 firearms in the postcode 2756, up 14 per cent in three years.

In Sydney's southwest, registered firearms in Auburn have risen sharply by more than 300 per cent to 2552, due to a new dealer.

At Bankstown firearms are up 73 per cent to 2804 while at nearby Chester Hill the increase is 80 per cent, up to 2777. At Horsley Park, the number of guns has risen from 2983 to 4498, dwarfing the official population of 1812, but much of this is registrations by the Horsley Park Gun Shop.

Other places with big increases include Tamworth, up 25 per cent, Singleton (19 per cent) Gulgong (108 per cent), Young (27 per cent), and Queanbeyan, (18 per cent). Moss Vale is home to more firearms than anywhere else in the state.

The 18,329 registered firearms as of June 30, 2008, is more than the local population of 14,150 living there in the 2006 census. The figure is up from 11,686 in May 2005. Highland Sports, one of the nation's biggest importers and distributors is located in the town.

Coalition for Gun Control spokeswoman Samantha Lee was concerned: "The more guns there . . . the more likely they are to be stolen or fall into the wrong hands".

She predicted the number of registered guns would surge due to a recent softening of firearms laws introduced after Port Arthur. The changing laws include existing gun owners no longer requiring a 28-day waiting period to acquire second or third guns. Bans on AVO recipients having a firearm for 10 years have also been wound back.

Shooters Party MP Robert Brown said many owners in regional areas had up to three firearms, including a .22 rifle and shotgun, explaining how guns may outnumber residents.

He said most were concentrated in Sydney's west and this was not surprising as "shooting is generally regarded as a blue collar sport".

Kevin Farrugia jailed for possession of illegal firearms

Article from: Herald Sun
Katie Bice and Elissa Hunt
March 12, 2009 03:20pm

A GUN-TOTING criminal caught for the sixth time with illegal firearms has been jailed - but for less than half the record sentence prosecutors had asked for.
Kidnapper and drug trafficker Kevin Farrugia, 36, was pulled over by police in Glenroy last April and had to be subdued with a taser.

A loaded .357 revolver was found in a bag that fell from Farrugia's lap and a 9mm semi-automatic handgun was found beside the passenger seat, cocked and loaded.

Farrugia already had four prior convictions for illegal guns.

At his County Court plea hearing last month Farrugia was branded a Good Samaritan after he rescued an injured woman from a horror smash that killed her two children.

The court heard he was first on the accident scene, helping to remove the mother from her wrecked car. He could see the younger child, a boy aged three months, had died but stayed with the other boy, aged 5, until emergency workers arrived. That child later died.

Defence lawyer Carolene Gwynn said Farrugia had been carrying guns when arrested because he got paranoid as his drug use escalated and feared he would become an underworld target.

Farrugia pleaded guilty to two counts of being a prohibited person in possession of an unregistered firearm and possessing cannabis.

Prosecutors had asked for Farrugia to be jailed for 8-9 years with a minimum of 6-7. The maximum penalty for the illegal weapons offence is 15 years.

But Judge Graeme Hicks said despite Farrugia's lengthy list of prior convictions other sentences handed down for the guns charge were dramatically less than what prosecutors had requested.

He jailed Farrugia for three years and six months with 16 months added onto a jail term he is already serving.

Bikies with illegal guns could be used to highlight Government argument for stricter control of legal firearms.



Drive-by shooting in Merrylands, Sydney

By staff writers
NEWS.com.au
March 24, 2009 11:49am

BIKIE violence is "absolutely unaccepteable,'' says Prime Minister Kevin Rudd after the brawl at Sydney airport which left one man dead.

Speaking from Washington where he will meet with US President Barack Obama, Mr Rudd said he had a "zero tolerance'' attitude towards gang violence, adding it was "repugnant'' and clearly showed Australia had a problem on its hands.

"Bikie gangs, bikie thugs and organised criminal activity, from my point of view, should have zero tolerance,'' Mr Rudd said.

He said the next regular meeting of federal and state attorneys-general - the standing committee of attorneys-general (SCAGS) - will put the issue on the agenda to look at what further action can be taken to curb such violence.

"This sort of behaviour by bikies and others engaged in organised criminal activity is unacceptable in Australia, absolutely unacceptable,'' Mr Rudd said.

Suburban warzones

Yesterday couple and three children narrowly escaped injury when his home and car were fired on in the latest of a spate of drive-by shootings linked to bikie warfare.

The shooting, in Merrylands, west Sydney, was the 11th gun attack in just five days.

Police could not officially confirm if the latest drive-by was bikie related but said a number of shots were fired from a white Nissan Maxima about 8.40pm (AEDT).

"It is alleged an occupant of the vehicle fired four shots into a house and sped away," police said. "Two adults and three children were in the premises at the time. No one was injured."

The house targeted was a brick duplex and a bullet shattered the rear window of a blue BMW X5 in the driveway.

One person was near the car when the shooting occurred. Reports differ as to whether it was a man or a child.

No one was injured but detectives last night took the man and other occupants of the house away for questioning.

Frances St was blocked off as forensic and crime scene officers investigated the shooting.

A group of friends, who had been at a park adjacent to the house, said they heard shots and saw flashes.

The 19-year-old witness, who did not want to be named, saw a white car, drive by.

"We saw gun shots and flashes, it wasn't that loud," he said. "I thought it was a bunger at first but as soon as I saw the flashes (of the gun) we all just started running."

The previous attack, on Sunday night, was at Bossley Park. A house was sprayed with bullets, but no one was injured. Hours earlier seven houses were sprayed with gunfire at Auburn as the Bandidos and rival gang Notorious exchanged fire.

On Sunday Anthony Zervas, 29, was bludgeoned to death at Qantas's T3 terminal in a brawl involving members of the Hells Angels and Comancheros bikie gangs.

No arrests were made at the airport and many of the attackers fled from the domestic terminal in taxis soon afterwards. Four men were later arrested and charged over the brawl.

Go to the Daily Telegraph more local coverage of Sydney's bikie gang wars.

Make no mistake, defending yourself even if you are older and vulnerable is illegal in Australia. All examples of self defense will be punished. Also, an intentional shot below the waist is NOT "intent to murder".



Resident charged with shooting attacker

Article from: AAP
April 01, 2009 06:53am

A SYDNEY resident has been charged with attempted murder after shooting another man who smashed a window of his home.

Police said 60-year-old male resident allegedly shot a man in the leg who smashed a window of his home at Cambridge Park, in Sydney's west, about 2.20am (AEDT) on February 23.

The wounded man, 41, ran to a neighbouring home for help while the other man drove away from the scene.

He was taken by ambulance to Nepean Hospital where he underwent surgery.

Following police inquiries, the older man was arrested yesterday and charged with shooting with intent to murder, causing grievous bodily harm with intent to murder and firing a firearm near a public place and in a manner likely to injure a person.

He was refused bail and is due to appear at Penrith Local Court today.

So the 60 year old dude is afraid this burglar is going to make it into his house and cause him harm. So he shoots him in the leg and gets charged with murder? Why? Its the end of the world..... >:(

In Australia self defense is practically outlawed. Possessing pepper spray (mace) or a taser is a crime. You need a rather hard to get license to own a paint ball gun, a pellet gun, an Airsoft gun, even a non-firing replica gun. In Australia it is illegal to use a gun for self defense.

Thanks for the info.

Examples like these articles should motivate more people to do more for their Second Amendment Rights in the U.S. I hear a lot of talk about it ain't gonna happen or they better be ready for a shoot-out.

My answer to that is: It is happening and hell yes they are ready for a shoot-out. That is where I see most of the problem. The strength and numbers game does not play out in your favor when there are twenty SWAT and only you going head to head. We need to be ready to stand with our neighbors and family. When they come they won't be carrying chocolates and flowers.

Man threatened by board with a nail in it

AAP
May 10, 2009 01:32am

POLICE are hunting an armed robber who attacked a bottle shop attendant with a plank spiked with nails on the Mornington Peninsula.

The man entered the store on Point Nepean Rd in the bayside town of Rosebud about 7.40pm (AEST) yesterday and demanded cash from a store attendant who was stacking shelves.

The offender allegedly struck the 55-year-old attendant to the back of his knees and the side of his head with the plank before fleeing the shop with money.

The victim was taken to the Rosebud Hospital for treatment and was lucky to escape eye injuries, police said.

No description of the assailant has been provided.

Revenge attacks feared after Sydney shooting

http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2009/06/06/2591309.htm?section=justin


Police are preparing for possible revenge attacks after a Sydney man, believed to be from a prominent family with alleged bikie links, narrowly survived a double shooting last night.

Officers say a 35-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were pulling up at the man's home in a Lamborghini when it was sprayed with bullets on a quiet street on Sydney's North Shore at 11:25pm (AEST).

Police say the gunman had been waiting for the man and was trying to kill him when he shot him five times in the chest, arm and stomach on Neerim Street at Castle Cove.

Neighbours say they did not hear the shooting and were not aware of a problem until emergency crews arrived.

The 35-year-old is in a critical but stable condition after having surgery at Royal North Shore Hospital, where a number of visitors have gathered.

The ABC understands the man is Fadi Ibrahim, whose brother owns a number of Sydney nightclubs. Another of Mr Ibrahim's brothers has alleged links to bikie gangs.

They were questioned by the Wood royal commission in 1995 about their role in the illegal Kings Cross drugs trade.

Another of Mr Ibrahim's brothers, Michael, was last year sentenced to up to nine years' jail for manslaughter over his role in the fatal stabbing of Robin Nassaur, the brother of Fat Pizza comedian George Nassaur.

The 22-year-old woman who was injured in last night's attack is recovering with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Detective Inspector Peter Yeomans, from Chatswood Police, says the 35-year-old man is lucky to be alive.

"The male hasn't given a statement to police," he said.

"He's just got out of surgery and he will be in hospital for a lengthy period of time due to his injuries, and we have spoken to the female involved in the incident...

"I think it would be quite obvious from his injuries that someone tried to kill the male in the vehicle."

Doctors say the the man will need more surgery.

Detective Inspector Yeomans says the house was known to officers, who had been there before.

He says they are prepared for any attempts at revenge.

"Police are always mindful of reprisal attacks," he said. "However, we've put in a number of proactive strategies in relation to looking at any possible reprisals."

Police are questioning a number of witnesses.

Anyone with information about the double shooting is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Police seize weapons in raid

AAP
August 11, 2009 11:15am

DETECTIVES have seized a cache of weapons valued at $15,000 from a house at Werribee, in Melbourne's outer west.

Police say they collected knives, slingshots, crossbows, machetes, hunting knives and throwing knives from a Westminster Drive address yesterday.

 A 21-year-old Werribee man has been charged with theft and police will allege he stole the weapons and planned to sell them.

Police spokeswoman Beck Angel said the police raid was not related to one in nearby Wyndham Vale last week when police charged a 46-year-old man after allegedly discovering explosive materials and a clandestine laboratory used for making them.

9 Teens Wounded After Ax-Wielding Student Launches Attack on German High School

An example of how people don't need guns to go on a rampage.



9 Teens Wounded After Ax-Wielding Student Launches Attack on German High School

Thursday , September 17, 2009
AP

ANSBACH, Germany —
An 18-year-old student armed with an ax and knives lobbed Molotov cocktails at his high school in southern Germany on Thursday, wounding nine pupils before he was shot and arrested by police.

The teenager entered the Carolinum High School in the Bavarian town of Ansbach on Thursday morning and threw one Molotov cocktail before police were alerted and arrived at the scene, said Bavarian Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann.

Police smelled smoke when they arrived at the school, Hermann said. They were confronted by the ax-wielding teen, who had thrown a second Molotov cocktail that apparently failed to detonate.

"Since the attacker threatened to use his weapons against the police, the officers opened fire," Hermann said, adding that the attacker, who was not identified, was wounded and in critical condition.

Udo Dreher, the chief police officer at the scene, said the18 year old was shot five times, but was not in life threatening condition.

Two teenage girls were seriously injured by the attacker — one suffering burns and the other head injuries, said Dreher. It was not immediately clear whether the second girl was attacked with the ax or a knife. Authorities did not say how the other seven wounded students had been attacked.

Dreher said the assailant started his rampage armed with three Molotov cocktails, the ax and two knives. He was arrested 11 minutes after police were called to the scene.

Authorities said the teen had no police record and it was not immediately clear what his motive might have been. Officials said there was no indication that he had said anything during the attack.

Fire service official Horst Settler said no major fires broke out in the school and its roughly 700 students were evacuated and taken to a nearby building.

Prosecutor Gudrun Lehnberger said the 18-year-old male student at the school was being held on suspicion of attempted murder. Lehnberger said the initial investigation would concentrate on determining a motive for the attack, which came only three days after the new school year started in Bavaria.

According to its Web site, Carolinum was founded in 1528, making it the second-oldest public high school in Bavaria. Today, the school offers curriculum based on the humanities and music for grades five through 13.

The incident was the second attack on a school in Germany this year.

In March, 17-year-old Tim Kretschmer fatally shot 12 people at his former school in the southwestern town of Winnenden. He fled the building and killed three more people before turning the gun on himself.

That was the nation's second-worst school shooting after a 2002 shooting spree in Erfurt that left 17 dead, including the gunman.

After Kretschmer's attack in Winnenden, Germany moved to tighten checks on gun owners.

Julia Gillard proposes tough new laws on importing weapons

    * Phillip Hudson
    * From: Herald Sun
    * July 29, 2010 12:00AM

WEAPONS such as knuckledusters, flick knives and stun guns would become much harder to import under a re-elected Gillard government.

Switching the election focus to law and order, Labor will release a list of 22 weapons it will effectively ban.

Home Affairs Minister Brendan O'Connor told the Herald Sun it would help make streets safer.

All our news: The 2010 election campaign in-depth

"It will mean fewer fatalities and injuries by knives and other weapons," he said.

Mr O'Connor said a re-elected Gillard government would immediately impose "an extremely hard test" that required anyone wanting to import the weapons to prove a lawful domestic purpose.

"There are almost no legitimate purposes for many of these weapons," he said. "We have to make it very, very difficult to import such weapons."

Australia - Toy guns will have to be licensed and stored in safes!

Toy guns will have to be licensed in Queensland under new firearms laws

    * By Robyn Ironside
    * From: The Courier-Mail
    * August 04, 2010 8:59AM


Josh Behrendt from Tobacco Station, Lutwyche holding a replica gun cigarette lighter / Mark Cranitch Source: The Courier-Mail

    * Changes to Weapons Act
    * Items that look like a gun to be licensed
    * Toy guns included

ANY ITEM that looks like a gun will have to be licensed under several changes to the Weapons Act being considered by the Queensland State Government.

Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could "reasonably be taken to be a weapon".

The draft act says an imitation is a "reasonable copy" of a weapon that is not capable of causing death or injury.

"If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed," said a government source.

"We just want to know where they are."

It is unclear how the draft affects toy guns.

Failure to license an imitation weapon will carry a maximum $4500 fine under the proposals and incorrect storage carries a penalty of $750.

The proposed changes will also impose restrictions on the ownership of laser pointers, tougher penalties for selling items such as crossbows, bullet proof vests and knuckledusters without the appropriate licence, and stricter rules on firearm storage. In certain circumstances, religion will be a lawful excuse for carrying a knife and police who take their service-issue firearms home will be exempted.

A discussion draft of the Act will be available on the Queensland Police website today and Police Minister Neil Roberts encouraged responses.

But firearm owners' groups have condemned the measures as cumbersome and misguided.

Christopher Ray from the Law Abiding Firearms Owners said legitimate owners were being "regulated out of existence".

"We just wanted some of the burden, some of the bureaucracy and some of the paperwork taken off our backs," Mr Ray said. "Instead, they're complicating it further for law-abiding people. If we make a single minor mistake we can lose our (gun) licence for five years."

He said LAFO was also opposed to police being given "free rein" to take their guns home and leave them on the bedside table.

Geoff Jones, state president of the Sporting Shooters Association, said the crackdown on imitation weapons risked making "otherwise law-abiding people into criminals".

Mr Roberts said a requirement for permanently deactivated public monuments such as weapons on display in RSL buildings to be registered or licensed had been removed from the draft act.

I can't convince anyone I know that housing here (Australia) is overvalued! They all seem to believe that you "can't loose" if you are in real estate.

Even when the newspaper prints articles about it people just hum and haw... Australians are going to have a very rude awakening when the bottom falls out.  :(

Housing market a 'time bomb', says investment legend

    * Katherine Jimenez
    * From: The Australian
    * June 16, 2010 12:00AM

THE Australian and British housing markets are the last two bubbles left in the wake of the financial crisis, and it is only a matter of time before they crash, warns legendary US investor and co-founder of global investment management firm GMO, Jeremy Grantham.

Mr Grantham famously reported a year before the global financial crisis: "In five years, I expect that at least one major bank (broadly defined) will have failed and that up to half the hedge funds and a substantial percentage of the private equity firms in existence today will have simply ceased to exist".

He said yesterday that Australia had an unmistakable housing bubble and that prices would need to come down by 42 per cent to return to the long-term trend.

"You cannot possibly miss it," he said.

"The price of housing typically trades about 3.5 times of family income and in bubble it goes to 6 or . . . 7.5 (times).

"Australia is having one now. You are at near 7.5 times family income . . . which suggests you are twice the size that you should be."

I suspect a lot of people think they're rich sitting on expensive homes (I'm sure a lot of borrowing other than a mortgage happened on their houses). Nevermind that the rise was pretty much universal, so we're all actually poorer in real terms. This is where a land tax and reform of planning laws would help immensely...

12 yo arrested by police for playing with a hand-made toy gun

Police pull gun on, arrest boy, 12

    * By Nadja Hainke
    * From: Northern Territory News
    * December 18, 2010 7:10AM

Tom Herbert was arrested by police for playing with a hand-made toy gun.

POLICE pulled their guns on a 12-year-old boy playing in a yard in the Northern Territory because they thought he was hiding behind a fence with a rifle.

The "weapon" was a broken 1m-long curtain pole with black duct tape, the Northern Territory News reports.

Tom had to be treated for shock at hospital as a result of the incident.

His mother Terry Mahoney said she was devastated.

"He was just a normal kid playing with a fake rifle," she said.

She said Tom had been playing with the toy weapon outside a house in Palmerston last week, when he was cornered by police.

At least five officers sped to the scene in two paddy wagons and a blue patrol car.

They jumped out of their vehicles, two of them drawing their guns, and urged the boy to drop his weapon.

He was told to sit down on the footpath and then a police officer put a hand on his shoulder and pushed him down," Ms Mahoney said.

"I believe he ended up with handcuffs on one wrist."

In Australia Tasers (Stun Guns) are not available to the general public. Therefore, the "intruder" in the story was armed with an illegal weapon. However since Tasers are deemed "non-lethal" the man defending his property is the one considered to be armed and dangerous.  ::)



Harrowing wait for homeowner Donald Brooke who stabbed intruder

HE confronted and stabbed a stun gun-wielding intruder inside his Sydney home - now Donald Brooke faces an agonising wait to see whether he will face charges over the thief's death.

Friends and neighbours yesterday rallied around Mr Brooke as details emerged of his lethal struggle with a 31-year-old intruder in his home yesterday, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Detectives questioned 54-year-old Mr Brooke yesterday but he is yet to make a formal statement.

He has told police that he was in his backyard shed when he heard noises in the house and went to investigate at about 3.15pm.

He was then confronted by the burglar, who threatened him with an electronic stun gun. There was a short altercation and Mr Brooke stabbed his attacker twice - in the arm and chest.

"Detectives spoke to the resident soon after the event," Detective Chief Superintendent Peter Gillam said. "It is too early to talk about charges. It's a complicated matter and all aspects of the law have to be considered, including self-defence."

Neighbours yesterday told of the immediate aftermath of the incident, in which Mr Brooke pleaded with the offender to "come back, you're injured" as the wounded man fled.

Ignoring Mr Brooke's request to return to the Glassop St house, the 31-year-old career criminal ran to a nearby car, where another man was waiting behind the wheel, and drove off.

The wounded intruder got out of the vehicle at Fairfield and was then taken in a critical condition to Liverpool Hospital. He died at 9.30pm.

Yesterday, a shaken Mr Brookes declined to comment on the advice of his lawyer.

But neighbour Janet revealed that Mr Brooke had followed the offender into the backyard and had expressed concern for his welfare after stabbing him.

She said Mr Brooke came to her house and was "shaking" and "very upset".

"He said 'I found a man in my house. He robbed three rings and money'," Janet said.

The dead man was well known to police and had previously been investigated for a number of crimes involving robbery. He was due to appear in Burwood court next week on a number of charges.

Detectives yesterday visited Mr Brooke at his house but are yet to decide whether he will be charged.

Supt Gillam said police had not recovered the stun gun but were confident the deceased had the weapon.
