A LONE gunman has shot dead a police IT expert outside police HQ in Charles Street, Parramatta, before being gunned down by police.


The shooter, believed to be middle eastern...


Parramatta shooting: Multiple shots fired outside police HQ on Charles Street

Another shooting, another day. This time in Australia. This time middle eastern. Again, religion probably. The world is going mad. Maybe this was what the blood moon prophesised. Russia have entered Syria, parcel bombs China, Shooting America, Shooting Australia. Just becoming the norm now. These sort of things were every few months not every other day. God knows what sort of world my son is going to live in when he grows up. Frightening.

Coming through on BBC also www.bbc.co.uk...

AND NOW THIS JUST COMING THROUGH from Florida another shooter: www.express.co.uk...


No, we just have access to the information faster. Do you think 'shooting at Charles st, parramatta' would have made the net so fast even 2 years ago? There are aways shootings. The Florida one seems to be domestic violence, in a house, the shooter committing suicide.

Let the middle east do its own thing.


I agree. But let them do it in the Middle East.

But according to Obama this should have never happened.

Isn't Australia heavily gun restricted?

One shooting, one dead (not inc. the shooter) - an event so rare it makes headline news down here.

How many mass murders has the US had again recently? Australia has had ZERO by the way.

Yet:



As of 2015 about 815,000 people had a gun licence in Australia and there was around 3.5 to 5.5 million Registered Firearms in Australia.

So plenty of guns still there....I wonder what the REAL problem is.....doesn't appear to be the guns.

You're conveniently forgetting the fact that our gun laws here prevent assault rifles from getting into the wrong hands. Thats what the restrictions are about here, keeping high powered weapons out of peoples hands who do not NEED them.

And you conveniently only said "Mass Murders" in your statement above. There have been mass murders with all kinds of weapons.....not just assault rifles.

Plenty of laws are in place in the US....criminals/nutters tend not to follow those.

Here are a few to jog the memory...hammers, knives, bats...



Childers Palace Fire - In June 2000, drifter and con-artist Robert Long started a fire at the Childers Palace backpackers hostel that killed 15 people.
Sef Gonzales - On July 10, 2001, Sef Gonzales bludgeoned to death his sister, mother and father with a baseball bat.
Monash University shooting - In October 2002, Huan Yun Xiang, a student, shot his classmates and teacher, killing two and injuring five.
Churchill Fire - 10 confirmed deaths due to a deliberately lit fire. The fire was lit on 7 February 2009.[5]
Lin family murders - On July 2009, Lian Bin "Robert" Xie killed his sister, her husband and three members of their family (5 persons from the Lin family) with a hammer. The faces of the victims were so disfigured that forensics had to be used to identify them. The motivation for the family massacre were partly because Lin had criticised Xie for not having a job.
2011 Hectorville siege - A mass shooting that took place on Friday, April 29, 2011, in Hectorville, South Australia. It began after a 39-year-old male, Donato Anthony Corbo, went on a shooting rampage, killing three people and wounding a child and two police officers, before being arrested by Special Operations police after an eight-hour siege.[6]
Quakers Hill Nursing Home Fire - 10 confirmed and as many as 21 people may have died as a result of a deliberately lit fire in a Quakers Hill nursing home. The fire was lit early on 18 November 2011.[7]
Hunt family murders - Geoff Hunt killed his wife and three children before turning the gun on himself on September 9, 2014.[8]
Cairns stabbings - A woman stabbed 8 children to death on Friday, 2014, December 19, 2014. 7 of them were her own

And unfortunately the Florida one plays out all over the world several times a day. How they pick which ones to highlight is often a puzzle to me.

People kill each other every day. We have been doing this for a long time. Guns, knives, sticks, stones, bare hands even; people kill people, and most times it is for very selfish reasons. It is the acceptance of the killing of large groups of innocent people for the gain of a few that is historically criminal.

A repeating historical lesson that we never seem to learn from.

Vasa youre forgetting Some are obsessed with Assault weapons and see each incident as another assault weapon. Woudnt matter if they were all stabbed to death or blown up. This incident in australia just shows you even with strict bans in place killings by guns still will happen.

Actually, you're missing the point that they happen A WHOLE LOT LESS than the U.S.

Nobody claimed it would completely stop all killings, that's just another poor attempt at deflection.

Was this shooter a legal gun owner. I find it hard to believe someone would not follow gun laws.

You're only finding it hard to believe because you are operating under the fallacy that we claimed our gun laws would eradicate murder entirely. We never said anything of the sort.

It did, however, REDUCE the amount of gun crime and gun related murders with the added benefit of having had NO MASS KILLINGS WHATSOEVER SINCE THE LAWS CAME INTO EFFECT.

Y aknow how so many say that you can legally own guns in th eUK? well only th eselect few it seems.
a law was passed effectively banning the private ownership of all handguns in the UK, following a highly successful public campaign in the months after Dunblane that included a petition being handed to the government with almost 750,000 signatures. Before this ban they also banned Semi auto weapons and pump action weapons. You could still get a shotgun(break type) with a permit.

However, Britain was shaken by another massacre in June 2010 when a lone gunman, named as Derrick Byrd, killed 12 people and injured almost 30 others after a near four-hour shooting spree in rural Cumbria, northern England. The body of the 52-year-old taxi driver was found alongside two powerful rifles, one equipped with a telescopic sight.

The tragedy again raised questions about the effectiveness of Britain's gun laws after it was revealed Byrd was licensed to carry firearms. The licensing application process involves being vetted by police as well as the applicant's doctor to assess their fitness to own a weapon.

So once again the Laws did not save anyone from getting shot.

Higher populations more shootings. its simple math. COld hard percentages. If you dont like the right to bear arms you know what to do. Oh but think of the chilren....what about the chilren!

Ive been shot before and i didnt blame the Gun. Everyones blaming the Gun did this the Gun did that ,but the Gun didnt fire itself did it? These actions are being allowwed to happen on purpose. its not th e first time the government experimented on its people. But its the first time its been done to cause a change to the constitution.

SO what people died. Happens every day every minute every second.
