Australian airport security & gun-control are a joke

The Age - Two boys have smuggled an arsenal of weapons and ammunition through two states in one of Australia's most serious breaches of airport security. The boys, aged 14 and 11, packed stolen pistols, knives and 3000 rounds of ammunition in their check-in luggage on a Qantas flight from Karratha to Perth on Monday night, the West Australian reports. They then boarded a Jetstar flight to Cairns where they were arrested on Tuesday morning, the paper said. The 14-year-old, who allegedly stole the weapons and ammunition from a shop in Karratha, north of Perth, has been charged and will face court on Tuesday.

ABC News - Three children and their parents were inside a house hit in another drive-by shooting in western Sydney last night that police believe may have been gang-related. Homes in Sydney's west have been targeted by a string of drive-by shootings in recent months that are thought to be linked to rival bikie gangs, amid an escalating turf war in the city. - The robbery happened when a cash-in-transit security officer stopped with his partner on Merrylands Road, Merrylands, to collect cash from a chemist about 3pm (AEDT) on Monday. "As he was returning to his vehicle he was approached from behind by a man, who he believed was armed with a firearm," police said. "The man forced the security guard into a vehicle, described as a white VT Commodore, that was parked and waiting with two other occupants in McFarlane Street. "The officer was driven a short distance before being ordered out of the car without the bag of cash." The security officer was punched in the face during the robbery, causing minor injuries. - TWO men have been found shot dead in southern Canberra with reports the murders are related to outlaw bikie gangs. ...... Emergency services were called to Couchman Crescent, Chisholm, at about 3.10pm (AEDT) today after receiving reports a man had suffered a gunshot wound. The ACT Ambulance Service found two men, and declared both dead at the scene.
