First they came for the high-capacity magazines, and I said nothing. Then they came for the… T-shirt launchers?
That seems to be the case among the insufferable gun grabbers who enforce Australia’s freedom-hating agenda.
The police in Queensland confiscated an air-powered T-shirt launcher from a basketball team, saying (with a straight face, apparently) that it’s a “category B weapon” and, therefore, must be registered with the government.
This is what happens when you put your human rights in the hands of bureaucrats.
According to the general manager of the Crocodiles, the Queensland Police “ballistics unit informed the venue that essentially it was a category B weapon and it needed to be handed in, otherwise people in possession of it would be prosecuted.”
If they had been prosecuted, the charge would have been: “Intent to cause bodily harm with a T-shirt.”
The police defended their action by saying that a T-shirt launcher “can only be manufactured by a licensed armorer.”
Note to “licensed armorers” in Australia: there is now a market for people who need T-shirt launchers.
I suppose that this is the part where I should remind you that President Obama cited Australia’s gun control laws as a model of success.
Crikey! He really doesn’t know what he’s talking about, does he?
