I am not the only one who thinks this.
While a recent survey found that 75 per cent of NSWers want to see laws passed to protect the public against the spread of firearms, I think there is another group of people who are not happy with the current law.
For example, when I was young, I was taught to keep my head down and take care of my business.
But I have since learned that when I have a gun in my hand, I am going to run it through my fingers.
When you are in the position of the police officer, that’s the first time you know you have a firearm.
And it is important for the public to know that if they get a gun, they are also being put at risk.
If you don’t know where it is, how can you tell if it’s a real firearm?
You don’t need to be a detective to find out that a firearm is a fake.
It’s not a matter of if you have it or not, but when you do.
The problem is that in NSW, we have laws which are not very clear about the definition of firearms.
Some gun laws are vague.
Some states have more strict rules.
And the laws we have are not good enough.
The laws that we have need to change.
The current laws are confusing and need to reflect reality.
I don’t think we have the resources or expertise to tackle this problem.
There is a law in NSW that is being used to try to deal with the problem.
But it’s unclear to me what the laws are, and whether or not they are being enforced properly.
Why should the state be paying for the police to enforce laws that don’t actually exist?
If I have an argument with someone who is not behaving properly, and I get a call from a police officer who wants to arrest them, they don’t seem to have any knowledge of how to do that.
They don’t have the expertise.
We need a new, more clear law to deal directly with this issue.
You can’t just send someone to jail and say, “If you want to get a firearm, you’ve got to tell me”.
We have to take a stand.
I have the opportunity every day to do my job, to enforce the law and protect our community.
People can get into trouble for exercising their rights, but if you don, you are sending a signal that you don ‘t want them there.
