It’s Never Enough For Them

Gun control advocates are continually calling for “commonsense” gun laws. However, even if one is in full compliance with the laws they have pushed, it is never enough.

A case in point comes from the island of Tasmania in Australia.

A homeowner in Blackmans Bay had three rifles and a shotgun stolen from his home in a daytime robbery. Police Inspector Peter Cerritelli said that the owner had properly secured all of the firearms in a locked safe and that he was licensed in accordance with the law. However, these precautions as well as the lawful ownership were not enough for the National Coalition for Gun Control.

However, National Coalition for Gun Control co-chairman Roland Browne said yesterday that the one-size-fits-all approach to storage was insufficient.

“There’s always a problem with the storage of large numbers of guns in residential houses,” Mr Browne said.

“They become targets for thieves.

“The Government and police are going to have some work to do to mark out some better standards for firearms storage given that compliance with the law isn’t sufficient, in every case, to stop theft.

“It’s not easy, presumably, to go into a house and walk out with a series of firearms.

“It must have been planned and carefully executed.”

Reading Mr. Browne’s statement I get the feeling that he won’t be satisfied until all private firearms are either stored in a government-run armory or, more likely, banned outright.

Like I said earlier, it is never enough for them. A more accurate name for his group would be the National Coalition for Gun Prohibition.

  1. "The Government and police are going to have some work to do to mark out some better standards for firearms storage given that compliance with the law isn't sufficient, in every case, to stop theft."

    They've tipped their hand. Nothing can be sufficient, in every case, to stop theft of anything.

    With sufficient planning and resources, anything can be stolen, no matter how strong the security. The security any non-government or non-commercial entity – like a civilian – is able to afford will be vulnerable to the resources available to a sufficiently competent and motivated criminal.

    They are demanding the impossible, and then use the rare failure to meet that demand as a justification for their true goal – the banning of all civilian firearm ownership.

  2. One thing that lept of the page at me was how they said,"There's always a problem with the storage of large numbers of guns in residential houses," Mr Browne said.

    Four is not a large number!

    Always the thing, never the behavior. Cooper was right; these guys have a mental illness.
