A second shot for gun thief Keith Anthony Braund covers his face from the camera as he walks out of court By MEAGAN DILLON Court Reporter A MAN who stole two highpowered rifles from Darwin Lord Mayor Graeme Sawyer was sentenced to three months jail yesterday. But Magistrate John Lowndes fully suspended the sentence and fined him almost $1000. Keith Anthony Braund, 29, pleaded guilty to possessing and selling the firearms. The guns, a Marlin Winchester 38.55 calibre rifle and a 7mm Remington target rifle, went missing from Mr Sawyers gun safe in November last year. Dr Lowndes said the court took the illegal sale of firearms especially to people without a gun licence very seriously. The circumstances surrounding how you came into possession of the firearms. . . was through a relative, Dr Lowndes said. He said it was a serious matter because Braund did not ask the person he sold the stolen guns to what they intended to do with them. This is of great concern because . . . one doesnt know who is going to come into possession of those firearms and how they would use them, he said. Dr Lowndes said Braund had been in trouble for dishonesty before but had kept his nose clean for some time. The 35-year-old man who purchased the rifles from Braund had already been convicted and fined $800. Mr Sawyer was a licensed sports shooter and had more than 10 registered firearms to his name. But his gun licence was stripped after being found guilty of illegally owning a silencer and a 1908 Luger pistol in February. The weapon and silencer were found in a police raid of his home last year. Mr Sawyer escaped conviction for the firearms offences.
