I would be keen to see the stats you mentioned and how they compare to the United States, my bet would be that you could pick just one state and they
would have more gun crime then we would have nationally.
Saying that, if I lived in the United States I would own a gun.
Grim I beg to differ. I will have to find the research but per capita Australia averages out to have just as much murders and gun crime, if not more
so than the USA. Also no Australians do not like the status quo of having no guns, some do some don't but its not a majority thing. Australians were
just suckered in by the Port Arthur fiasco conspiracy into giving up their guns and believing there is a Port Arthur around every corner if we have
People are right, criminals do not register guns and all the gun bans have done is set the black market prices for guns overboard. It used to be
around $200 to $400 black market for a pistol and last price I was quoted a year ago was $2000 to $5000 a pistol. Even given standard inflation the
prices are incredible.
As I said the important part of the statistics is per capita.. Most American states have much larger populations than here In Australia.
I will find the studies to link to and post them.
For the person who said Baphomet is a satanic god, that is not quite correct. Baphomet has been adopted by satanic cults as a symbol of satanism but
Baphomet himself is not satanic, same as Pan and other gods attributed to the Earth Element.
