Australians may be more at risk from gun crime than ever before with the country’s underground market for firearms ballooning in the past decade.

Previously unseen police statistics show that the number of pistol-related offences doubled in Victoria and rose by 300 per cent in New South Wales. At least two other states also saw a massive jump in firearms-related offences during the same period.An investigation by The New Daily unearthed previously unpublished data for firearms offences collected from police and crime statistics agencies in four states – Victoria, NSW, South Australia and Tasmania.

David Leyonhjelm, a Liberal-Democratic Australian senator, said in a National Rifle Association (NRA) video interview that Australians, because of strict gun control laws, “are a nation of victims.”

Since his election in 2013, Leyonhjelm has pushed for more lenient gun rights in the nation which, since it boasts no gun massacres since 1996, has been a talking point by many gun rights opposers. Leyonhjelm’s comments, and the video itself, came after 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested the U.S. implement the Australian gun buyback scheme spearheaded by ex-Prime Minister John Howard.

“I don’t think Australia is a model for the United States on gun control at all,” Leyonhjelm said. “[The Howard scheme made] no difference to firearms violence, gun violence overall… The criminals still have guns, there’s no shortage of guns. There’s a very vigorous black market for guns, so it’s really not made the slightest bit of difference… if you want a gun, you can get one.”

A highly sophisticated weapons production facility using 3D printers and computers to make machine guns has been uncovered in a series of raids across the Gold Coast.

Police say they found four homemade automatic submachine guns, silencers, ammunition, a replica handgun, a .45 calibre pistol and equipment used to make weapons at two Nerang businesses, as well as a pill press. The equipment used to make the weapons included computers, a 3D printer, drill presses and other gun parts and is believed to be the most sophisticated of its kind found in Queensland.


“The weapons seized are yet to be tested, however, weapons of this type have the capacity to fire hundreds of rounds of ammunition a minute,” Det Supt Jon Wacker said. “In the wrong hands they present as a significant threat to the public.”

This is just one reason why gov'ts try to suppress information on the internet. If Hillary had been elected, we might have been looking at ATF registration of 3D printers and CNC machines.

Two things:
1) what's the point of emptying your magazine and a half a second, that seems kind of stupid to me.

2) i'm also talking about the first video. I like the part at the end where the police chief said anyone pointing a gun at a police officer will be killed. Why can't we have that same mentality in America? :thumbs2:

The real question is what good is a pistol caliber machine gun (aka submachine gun)? I got a MAC10/9 that empties a 25 rd mag in 1.25 seconds. If it worked for the bad guys in Scarface i figured it would be good for the zombie apocalypse too... :biggrinjester:

Thousands of Australians are buying guns and GRENADES on the dark web - and pay black market firearms dealers to sneak them into the country

A report has found that Aussies are using the dark web to buy firearms overseas.
Countries such as Canada, US, Asia and South America are shipping to Australia.
A used pistol is sold for as little as $218 while machine guns can go for thousands.
Users are also buying and downloading instructions on how to build explosives.

...and I don't care how they do...anything in Australia.

I like the people, good folk, but their confiscated stupid gun ideas blow...

OK, mate, I hate you: Therefor since I can't shoot you, I'll instead stab, slash, run over you with my car, set your house on fire while I assume you're asleep, or being being the large bloke I am and you with no martial arts training, I'll simply pound you out of life, etc.

Guns are the victims.

Killer mindset is what's at fault...

Grenades and machine gun among cache of weapons found in NSW home
A grenade launcher, an M20 machinegun, a gas propelled anti-personnel mine and a "masterkey" 870 shotgun were among a cache of weapons found during the raid of a Newcastle home on Wednesday, police say. Detectives allege Anthony Raymond Edwards, 49, of Charlestown illegally imported the firearms, firearm parts and ammunition from overseas.

I once purchased a book off of Amazon on how to manufacture a 9mm SMG in your home. It is totally workable. The only thing lacking is rifling in the barrel, so accuracy/range would be limited. But it would be plenty accurate enough to clear a house with it, or something like that. If I can buy it, so can Australians...so none of this is surprising. It’s a lot harder to suppress knowledge than firearms (pun intended).

NOTE: I have no intention of ever building such a device. I just wanted to see if it was true or not that it could be done by a person of average intelligence without access to a machine shop. The answer: totally true.
