“If we just ban all the guns completely then we will all be safer and criminals will not be able to get their hands on guns,” they said. But even a fervent belief in a fairy tale does not make it true. And Australian police are finding out the hard way that criminals will always have guns, even if they have to make them themselves.
Australian police are now saying that have caught a man who has been supplying a biker gang with compact, concealable guns.
According to The Sydney Morning Herald,
Police have smashed a Sydney pen-gun syndicate accused of supplying miniature weapons to bikies and organised criminals.
The James Bond-inspired weapons are made to look like pens, key rings and mobile phones…
…Police will allege Shane Kemp, 27, made eight-centimetre pens with the ability to shoot bullets from common items sold at hardware stores.
So far, officers have found 14 of the guns he allegedly sold at various locations across south-western Sydney…
…FAOCS commander Detective Superintendent Mick Plotecki said the guns could kill at close range.
“They are not particularity accurate, don’t have a barrel, but if they get in close they can inflict the same wound as a .22 – so they can kill,” Superintendent Plotecki said.
These aren’t guns I would ever want to use, as police are saying they have a 1 in 4 chance of exploding when they are fired, but just the fact that criminals are able to get their hands on these guns so easily should boggle their minds. The only question is this: If criminals can so easily get their hands on guns to carry out their crimes shouldn’t law abiding citizens be able to have guns to defend themselves against these crooks?
After all, in a world where only the bad guys have guns, guess who rules the land?
