I think both you guys and the Australians have some really strict gun laws right?
The 2nd amendment wasn't designed for those people of personal preference. It was designed as an acknowledgement that one must be ready to fight off tyranny. It doesn't have a lot to do with today's arguments. It was a reaction to what had just occurred in this country.
Though the immediate danger of those particular days have passed, tyranny has never died. So there is an equal reason to stay in the mode of the intent of the second amendment because tryanny can arise again.
Hows your weather this year on OZ? I live in the desert in SoCal and it has been really weird the last 3 years.
