Figures.


We have a black market too, with the OCASIONAL gunfights. But usually that occurs from one criminal to another, not a public shooting.
We've had one event last year, where a lunatic went shooting in a mall, ironically he had a legit gun because he was a member of a shooting club. Funnily enough our gun clubs now have stricter policies and check on their members better. You could almost say people learn from their mistakes...

Gun rights activist goes after Hollywood A-listers in YouTube video splicing their calls for gun control with violent images from their films - NY Daily News

"The video, however, doesn’t acknowledge that many of the celebrity films clips were of actors playing police, FBI agents or members of the military. It also identifies the celebrity PSA as “anti-gun,” when the video, and the Mayors Against Illegal Guns campaign, actually calls for tighter gun control, including requiring a background check on every gun sold and a ban on high-capacity magazines."

Yeah, most of the recent high profile gun crime that I can think of in Australia has been underworld sort of stuff - criminal gangs, drug rings, etc. They're the kind of people who, even when we had lax gun laws, still used the black market to acquire their weapons.

Incidentally, ever since Australia clamped down heavily on guns after 35 died at Port Arthur in 1996, how many people died in the worst public shooting spree? Two. (And the guns were legally acquired, not black market.)

we definitely still have gun violence, of that there is no doubt. But innocent bystanders rarely get killed or injured.

The kids went back to school today, in their new school. Must be very difficult for them.

I just saw the Alex Jones interview on Piers Morgan.

What exactly did I just watch? I'm so confused...

Who is that guy? I was channel surfing last night, heard him speak one sentence, got scared and changed the channel.

Don't know how many guns he owns, but just one is a frightening thought.

He's a hero to conspiracy nuts. He started infowars.com, he was one of the first to start the 9/11 was a government operation. He's even included Bono in one of his conspiracies. Overall classy guy.

i had never heard of this person before this morning. he's in no way representative of anything or anyone in the US other than conspiracy theorists.

i have no idea why Piers Morgan (who no one likes) even had him on other than for sideshow purposes, though i guess there was some petition that no one cares about?

Apparently, this wacko is the one who started the petition.

That petition is beyond ridiculous. What about the First Amendment?

Some people in this country scare me.
