Registration leads to confiscation

In Australia:

Raids yesterday morning by detectives working in Taskforce Acer 17 netted firearms police feared could be passed to criminals.

The weapons were held legally by registered gun owners, but police intelligence revealed 20 had “connections to family or associates who were persons of interest to the Acer Taskforce team”.

Officers simultaneously hit 21 properties at 8am to ensure the licence holders were complying with all conditions.

A total of 21 guns – including 15 shotguns and ammunition for an AK47 rife – were seized.

Raids on lawful gun owners and seizures of their lawfully owned property just because they knew the wrong people.

This is why we resist any form of registration or licensing. Registration eventually leads to confiscation, always.
