Zaky Mullah acquired a Sterling .22 rifle and about 100 rounds of ammunition.

He’s just a sporting shooter!

So he spent time in jail. Young and stupid as he says in the Guardian.

“For the record: I am not a supporter of Isis. I hate Isis. I was just making the point that Ciobo‚Äôs comments play into the justification many Muslims feel for joining Isis. When a member of the government says that Muslims accused of terrorism can have their citizenship stripped without a judicial process, it is dangerous.” …

“(Ciobo’s) comments were a disgrace to fair dinkum Australians who understand this country is built on the rule of law. He is proposing to throw that out and replace it with an authoritarian system. Is that what Aussies want? God forbid.”

“… weakening the rule of law and replacing it with a dictatorial system like that which exists in Syria, where Bashar al-Assad and his ministers have the power to do whatever they like to people without trial. This a very dangerous step Australia is taking.”
