Daniel Andrews’ Victoria awash with drugs and illegal guns

A report released today by the Sentencing Advisory Council has confirmed firearms offences in Victoria have risen 34% from 2012-13 to 2016-17.

The report also highlights the link between firearms offences and organised crime, with 83% of offenders having a prior history of offending and over a third being on a court order at the time of offending.

This alarming report comes after 8 fatal shootings within as many weeks and only days after Daniel Andrews’ new anti-gun laws failed at the first hurdle.

Colin Websdale, a former bikie boss with 26 criminal convictions, was able to successfully overturn his firearms prohibition order despite VCAT stating his association with the Rebels did pose a risk to public safety.

Unfortunately, law and order isn’t a priority for the Andrews Labor Government despite Victorians having the worst perceptions of safety in the nation.
