your arsenal

HON KATE DOUST (South Metropolitan — Deputy Leader of the Opposition) [8.15 pm]: […] It is interesting to find such a diverse range of weapons that people would have to deal with, particularly the police. The advisers told me that in the past 15 months 235 weapons have been seized. I assume that was in the metropolitan area.

Hon Peter Collier: That was in Perth and Northbridge.

Hon KATE DOUST: That is a substantial number, given that the cultural centre of Northbridge is actually in Perth. Most people who go for a night out would not think to take their nunchaku, gas dart, electric shock weapon or machete.

Hon Jock Ferguson: Or their crutches!

Hon KATE DOUST: I have always found that a hockey stick works quite well!
