Interesting now that was a weapon that ended up in some very irresponsible hands.

By fit I meant mentally and physically. The fact that the police never reported his disturbing prior actions is a failure on their part.

If you mean the Treasury Department then I agree.

Even a lowly semi 1911 can crank out at a rate of 600-620 rounds per minute.

Why? Because mentally ill people aren't capable of telling lies on a 'simple psychological questionnaire? And if he couldn't get one legally, he'd just turn around and get one illegally. He had the money to be able to do so.


Stricter gun control laws only hurt law abiding citizens ... they only help criminals get away with more crimes because the law abiding population will become disarmed. Foreigners don't seem to understand that.

We banned military style rifles after several mass killings the last of which killed 35 and injured 23 since then the maximum amount of people killed in one single event is 2 citizens,you can spin it any way you want but tougher gun laws here have saved lives.

Now there are 250,000 illegal military long arms and 10000 rapid fire pistols in circulation so if im determined I can get an illegal weapon but your spur of the moment killers aren't in this market.

I found the per capita murder rate in Brisbane in 2010 (the only data I could locate) to be 5 per 100,000. Source

From the same source:


The rate of property offences, including fraud, identity theft and unlawful entry, in Brisbane Central was 15,555 per 100,000 properties – four times the state average of 4473.

...

The rate of assault was almost 10 times higher in inner-Brisbane than all other areas, with 1302 reports. Logan also was high, with about twice as many per capita.


New York City for the same period had a per capita of 4.5.

The gun laws in NYC are about the strictest in the US,try Chicago and yes the problem there is probably unregistered weapons in gangbangers hands

And they'd totally register them or turn them. I bet the P Stone Nation would be first in line.

I have no problems with concealed carry for responsible citizens in a place like that,what I am trying to argue,probably not all that well is to keep massive firepower out of the hands of irresponsible citizens hands.

Up until this past January the Chicago laws were stricter than New York City's so there will not be comparable statistical data. It may be years before we have a solid understanding the effect they will have.

Texas is often considered to have the laxest gun laws (actually it is Vermont) so I will give you some of their per capita murder rates:


    Austin 3.7

    Arlington 4.5

    Corpus Christi 5.1

    Dallas 12.4

    El Paso 3.4

    Plano .04

    San Antonio 6.4

    Fort Worth 5.7

    Houston 10.0


With the exception of Dallas and Houston most are on par with or lower than Brisbane and its draconian gun laws.

Are these all murders or just gun stats,yes people still get murdered here but its usually knifing or being bashed to death most gun murders are usually drug related or gang related like in your country,Sydney has a much bigger problem in this department than Brisbane.

If anyone hears the story covered as ANYTHING BUT A SHOOTING, let me know. The full story is in some printed media, but it is called a shooting every time I hear it on the radio or on TV.

As if this is preferable or better than dying from a gun shot wound?

All murders. Why, does it really make a difference if you bash someone's head in or shoot them? The end result is the same. And if the gang thing is a concern it makes you look even worse since you claim to not have it and Texas is fortunate enough to be located directly across the border from Cartel Central.

Either way you slice it your claims are invalid. The murder rate in your home town is not noticeably better than many cities in a very pro-gun state.
