You are trying to be a smart arse.

Making something illegal doesn't make it impossible to find, just much harder.

Doesn't look good for those poor people.

no -No not at all.ere are more restrictions than in the US, but there's plenty of legally owned guns - although the NRA might like you to believe otherwise.


Great!

Thanks for answering my question!

Gun control doesn't work!

The only end-game I can see with this situation is the hostage-takers are waiting for plenty of publicity before taking out the hostages. What else could they want if they're truly posing as ISIS?

Hopefully the bad guys are stopped very quickly before anything unfortunate happens.

Is this really the time and place to play this dumb card? Absolutely zero class.

That looks nothing like the IS flag?


Kinda looks Arabic though.



Be interesting to see where this goes.

Hopefully everyone is safe at the end.

Anti-Terrorism Exercise at Martin Place

Australian terror raids: AFP, ASIO move on suspected terrorists



While the claims remain unconfirmed, it’s understood the plot involved abducting a random Australian, execute them by beheading in a public place, possibly Martin Place in Sydney’s CBD, and film the act and post on social media.

Guns are not illegal in australia, not sure where your info on that comes from. Certain types are prohibited. However laws dont apply to criminal do they?

Terrible situation news stations are saying 13hostiages & 2 gun man.

If this is an IS op, then the Ozzies best get their 22 reg there soon as. I can't see anyone walking out of that shop without there being a fight.

Exactly!

I do apologize to those from Australia who want to protect themselves and their families! I am not making light of the seriousness of the situation, but trying to show the hypocrisy of those who judge other countries without knowing their culture and beliefs!

Bad people do bad things, and creating laws and taking away rights from those guilty of doing nothing because of those who are violent regardless of laws, does nothing more than give away your power as a human being to protect yourself and your family!

Sorry for my vindictiveness toward the topic, but it is what it is.........
