Gun Theft Doubles In Australia, So Antis Push More Laws

posted on December 1, 2016

Gun Control Australia, that country’s largest anti-gun lobbying group, claims that firearm thefts have nearly doubled in the island nation since 2009. In an effort to control that lawlessness, the group is calling for more new laws, the Sydney Morning Herald reports

Between 2013 and 2015, some 6,451 firearms were stolen in Australia, according to the anti-gun group, which made freedom of information requests for statistics from each Australian state. The Australian Institute of Criminology estimated that in 2009, the number of firearms stolen was about 1,700—a figure that rose to over 3,000 in 2015. 

Not surprisingly, the gun-ban group used those statistics to call for more anti-gun laws, including mandatory security systems for the already-mandatory gun safes, and limiting the number of firearms that any individual may lawfully own to three.
