Post office smuggling case: '220 guns imported'


Police allege a Sydney-based syndicate had imported up to 220 illegal pistols since late last year.

"It is something that we need to understand is a major concern, not only to law enforcement; it should be to every person that lives in this nation because guns coming into our community are nothing short of weapons that are used to kill and maim."
