Nice try mate .... but you're not going to hook this Aussie sheila with your dribble.
For years and years and years i have seen these posts on ATS. You cant handle the fact that what happened here made a difference. To acknowledge that would to be admit failure.
The answer is simple. BAN AMMUNITION. Let them keep their guns. You can use them to hit people on the head, throw them at someone, whatever you want. I can assure you that you wont see 49 dead from someone doing that.
If you did nothing after Sandy Hook and the pictures of those poor kids slaughtered, then its just this simple - you're crazy.
Crazy = someone who will never understand reason.
End of discussion.

Do you know why you can't compare Australia and America when it comes to guns?
Australians aren't living under the most violent war mongering dictatorial regime in the world. Our government spends more money on it's military then the rest of the world combined. Our government is monitoring our every communication. Our government has weapons of war in the hands of the police, tanks rolling around in the streets. We have a standing private army operating on our soil in the DHS. We have multiple violent federal alphabet agencies patrolling our every move. We have so many laws that the average every day citizen unknowingly commits multiple felonies. We have the largest prison population per capita in the entire world, and 80% of the people are locked up for VICTIM-LESS non violent crimes. Our justice system is broken. Our vets are offing themselves in record numbers as our ruling class laughs it up. We have large portions of our population living in poverty in generational cultural crime families. The list goes on and on.
There are MILLIONS of guns in the USA. It is estimated that there are more illegal guns in Detroit than any standing army has in it's possession. Guns aren't going anywhere. Restricting our gun ownership will only enable our criminal element further. The rest of us law abiding owners will be sitting ducks.
The main reason, maybe even the only reason for the second amendment, is because the founders understood what government tyranny looks like. People here in the states are to placated with kanye west and kim kardashian to even see it. Someday, maybe not now, maybe not in one hundred years, they are going to take it too far.
And guess who will be at the front lines stopping them?
True American Patriots with small arms.
And before you give me the nonsense of "well they have tanks and missiles what can you do with guns," just look at our track record when we face urban guerrilla warfare.
Someday, everyone in the world will be thanking the gun owners in this country.

I would absolutely HATE to live in a country where I felt the need to be armed when I go out.
I feel so lucky to not live in a country like that.

Instead of focusing on the gun problem (and yes it is a problem), why not try to understand why the terrorists hate the US and vote in people that are willing to deal with that problem, without more guns?
The Rambo mentality isn't going to solve problems. If you were in that club you would start firing at the person shooting? In a crowded room? Could you live with killing an innocent person?
Just my two cents and some quick points I thought of. I'm not saying you are right or wrong, only my thoughts.
