A nation known for its strict gun control laws is reeling after a gunman opened fire in an hour-long shooting rampage, killing four.

“On Wednesday, Northern Territory Police Commissioner Reece Kershaw told reporters that the suspect had used a 12-gauge pump action shotgun, a banned firearm that he said might have been stolen as far back as 1997 — when Australia was beginning a tectonic shift to stricter gun legislation,” according to NPR.

The shooter fired on unsuspecting shoppers in the business district in Darwin, the capital city. of Australia’s Northern Territory. Police said the shooter was previously known to authorities and was on parole. He was wearing a court-ordered electronic tracker on his ankle.

“We have seen a terrible act of violence take place in Darwin this evening. We know four people have lost their lives and there are a number of other casualties,” he said. “I have been in contact with Chief Minister Gunner and understand this is not an act of terrorism and a person has been taken into custody. My thoughts are with Territorians and the tight-knit community in Darwin.”

After a 1996 mass shooting, Australia cracked down on guns, buying back hundreds of thousands of weapons. They also banned semi-automatic weapons and implemented waiting periods for those who are able to purchase firearms. It is a serious crime to possess a firearm without the proper licensing in Australia.

But still, Australians are able to get their hands on weapons, as proven by the latest mass shooter.

The NPR report noted that during a 2017 amnesty period which lasted only three months, during which gun owners were allowed to turn their firearms over without penalty, 57,000 weapons were collected.

He’s not messing around.

A Florida sheriff is pledging to deputize law-abiding gun owners within his county if left-wing rioters “overwhelm” law enforcement.

Darryl Daniels, Clay County Sheriff, made the pledge in a video released on Tuesday morning. He also slammed misinformation and hysteria advanced by the mainstream media, inciting against law enforcement and covering up the criminal activities of lawless rioters.

If we can’t handle you, I’ll exercise the power and authority as the sheriff, and I’ll make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this county and I’ll deputize them for this one purpose to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility,” warned Sheriff Daniels.

The sheriff issued a direct warning to ANTIFA criminals and left-wing rioters hoping to replicate a model of destruction, violence and criminal activity in his jurisdiction, a county just south of Jacksonville.

If you threaten to come to Clay County… And think for one second that we’ll bend our backs for you- you’re sadly mistaken. I know what happens when lawlessness prevails… If we can’t handle you, you know what I’ll do? I will exercise the power and authority of the sheriff, and I will make special deputies of every lawful gun owner in this country… to stand in the gap between lawlessness and civility.”

Daniels has served 29 years in law enforcement, previously serving in the U.S. Navy.
