Military-grade guns seized as police make drug-related arrests across NSW, Victoria and Queensland
There is more than enough weapons (military grade) out there to conduct a civil war. That is a fact. The fools that run this country fail to realize it is just a matter of time. Police are so arrogant they think they can deal with it. Wrong in every respect. The American Police thought that as well, they are better armed, better trained and a lot more aggressive than in Australia. Police here for one are going to come a thud. What they got in this arrest wont dent the market at all. People have had enough.
Police say military-grade firearms and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of amphetamines were seized during an operation involving officers across Queensland, New South Wales and

Investigators from Strike Force Ranson executed two search warrants at properties in Lismore and Ballina on the NSW north coast today.
Acting Superintendent Cameron Lindsay, from the Richmond Police District, said he was glad the guns were off the streets.
“Illegal weapons and firearms that were of a military grade [were seized],” he said.
“We were extremely concerned by the type of firearms and weapons that we were able to seize as part of this investigation.
“I believe that there is no use for a firearm like the one that we have displayed today and we will now allege has been seized as part of this investigation.
A 28-year-old man was arrested at Ballina and charged with a number of offences including the supply and manufacture of a large commercial quantity of prohibited drugs, and supplying prohibited firearms, firearm parts and ammunition.
He has been refused bail and will appear in the Lismore Local Court tomorrow.

‘We’re at the top end of this syndicate’
Strike force detectives will apply for the extradition of three men, two from Queensland and one from Victoria, to New South Wales tomorrow.

“We’re talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of drugs moving across borders and into this area.”
