Interesting for gun-controlled Australia, but I have more interesting truck guns than those.

Anyhow, aside from violating Australian gun ownership laws, did the police have any evidence that the guns were used in the commission of a crime or that any guns were sold to criminals? If not, the raid was just a demonstration of official power, nothing more.

In the “scary” second picture of “semi autos” one sees.......two tacti-cooled bolt action rifles and a pump action Remington 7615. I can’t make out the other two.

The simple act of possessing them without registration is major violation of state law. Used in crime? Hell, simply having them is equitable to multiple felonies here.

From the article, it sounds like someone ratted them out that the guns were being “modified” against the laws, and that all would be checked against crimes in a database somehow. $5 says they’ll try to pin some crime(s) on those 3 guys, for either having modified weapons, or some other crimes. You can bet that they’ll be made an example of, for public consumption.
