AN East Coast woman robbed of thousands of dollars worth of guns from her remote property soon after the weapons were registered is calling for answers from Police Commissioner Darren Hine.
"All nine guns listed were stolen that night. They didn't bother going into the house or taking the tools, electrical equipment or anything else of value stored in those sheds. They went straight to the safes, got the guns, went to the building where the ammunition was stored in a locked box and took that. "They knew exactly what they were doing and they didn't damage anything they didn't need to. From what everyone's saying, that's what happens every time."
The firearms included a Savage .22 Magnum and other powerful rifles, as well as a 12-gauge shotgun -- the preferred weapon in Tasmania's recent spate of drive-by shootings.

Could it be the government's special forces or the police themselves that are doing it? They have no respect for the law, and are hell-bent on gun confiscation by any means necessary.
Police sources have told the Mercury the firearms registry database lacks technical sophistication and does not record if it has been accessed -- lawfully or unlawfully -- unless the person looking at it changes information.
Tasmanian police are searching for two men who held up a packed pub in Hobart's northern suburbs overnight dressed in forensic-style jumpsuits.
The men wearing balaclavas, gloves and overalls walked into the lounge area of the Derwent Tavern at Bridgewater about 7:00pm. One was carrying a firearm. The men ordered everyone to lie on the ground and then helped themselves to the pub's TOTE takings.
At least another 10 firearms are on the streets following two separate robberies in the state's north in the past 24 hours. The Longford Mitre 10 hardware store was burgled early this morning, with at least four rifles stolen. Police say that thieves broke into the store by smashing a hole in the rear wall of the building.
