DOB IN GUN CRIMS – Thursday May 23 2013

– Senior police have called on the public to help them disarm criminals amid a shock surge in gun crime.
Nationwide police forces will today launch Operation Unification, in which people who know where illegal guns are held are urged to turn in the rogue owners.
Victoria’s top detective, Assistant Commissioner Steve Fontana, said those who helped could save the lives of others. He guaranteed that information given to investigators would be acted upon.
Gun-related crime rose 14.5% in the past financial year in Victoria.
The issue will be on the agenda today when he chairs a meeting in Melbourne of the Australia/New Zealand Policing Advisory Agency. Mr Fontana outlined concern at:
– A trend towards criminals making their own guns.
– The risk to the broader community from criminals shooting at each other.
– An increase in the number of guns being turned up by police on routine patrols.
– Widespread thefts of firearms from farms.
– Failure of legitimate gun owners to secure their weapons against theft.
In one recent case, a man was charged with manufacturing his own guns in his shed. A search found a sub-machine gun, semi-automatic weapons, a silencer and a lathe.
This week, detectives from the Armed Crime Taskforce seized four handguns, pen pistols and parts from shortened rifles in a raid in Melbourne’s southeast.
Mr Fontana said the fact criminals were travelling to rural Victoria to plunder farms for guns was alarming, and indicated a strong underworld demand. Police members had been instructed to take extra care on duty because of the number of guns in circulation.
Mr Fontana said the shooting in March of two Bandido Motorcycle Club members at Melton showed the risk to the community – Mark Buttler

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
