Is Leaked Aussie Gun List Being Used By Thieves?

posted on June 3, 2017

We told you just yesterday how gun owner databases can sometimes fall into the wrong hands, causing all sorts of problems. Now a data leak in Australia is being blamed by some for gun thefts.

According to a report at geelongadvertiser.com, police say a January leak of 9,000 gun owners’ personal information isn’t to blame for recent thefts. But some gun owners who have had their firearms stolen aren’t buying it.

The newspaper reported that Modewarre farmer and gun collector Ross Matthews had $30,000 worth of guns stolen from his property, and expressed concern that his details were passed on to thieves who cased his farm and later robbed him. The gun collector said his neighbors had also been hit—with some having up to 13 firearms registered, the majority shotguns.
