State Premiers and Territory Chief Ministers head to Canberra for their April Fools Day COAG meeting
Premiers and Territory Chief Ministers, who all enable criminal and terrorist access to ammunition and bomb making chemicals, are en route to Canberra, to participate in their exquisitely timed, ‘April Fool’s Day’ COAG meeting.
Innocent Australians continue to die in gun related incidents, because every current Premier and Chief Minister has failed to implement the 2007 COAG agreement, to disrupt unfettered access by criminals and terrorists, to the CBRNE supply chain, including ammunition and chemicals.
Ten minutes COAG discussion before agreeing to stop the rot and reduce the death toll, by authorising work to begin on establishing the feasibility of modifying the backend of AUSTRAC, used to trace and monitor currency, used to finance terrorism and trans-national crime and having a demo derivative available in 12 weeks, won’t put a hole in the proposed COAG agenda.
There are no excuses about funding or interoperability left, to cause further delay. The new COAG CBRNE monitoring and management system to disrupt the CBRNE supply chain, can be self-funded, by all gun, ammunition and chemical vendors and those who buy these products.
This is not the end of legitimate, licensed gun ownership – but it will make life extremely difficult for the estimated two million un-licenced weapon owners and end stockpiling of ammunition and chemicals, particularly by terrorists.
