Turnbull denounces George Christensen over threatening gun photo

Tuesday 02:26 GMT

Malcolm Turnbull has blasted George Christensen for a “very inappropriate” photo showing the MP holding a handgun captioned “do you feel lucky, greenie punks?”

Queensland police said that no offence had been committed although the Australian federal police were still investigating the matter.
