How can you say gun control doesn't work, if you made it harder for kids/idiots/social retards to acquire guns then you have less deaths at their
Will it stop crime no but don't be naive it's a bit harder for the bullied kid to kill a bunch of his class mates if he can't just go home and grab
an arsenal, there is less chance of being killed by a robber armed with a knife than one with a Mac10, the guy who just had a fight with his girl &
family might have had time to cool down and think accept when he went to go for a drive to cool off he saw the AK he got for buying a car and the rest
is prime time.
You are just repeating anti-gun media BS the proof is in the states with the least or no gun control also having the least amount of crime and the
states with the strictest gun control being some of the most dangerous places on the planet LA NY and DC being cases in point. Knife attacks kill far
more people the guns.
You can implement all the gun control you want and that just makes it easier for people to get guns just like drugs. Please show us how drug control
has made illegal drugs harder to get? You can't and neither does gun control make it harder to get guns. It is just feel good BS put out by anti-gun
idiots it does not work and never will as has been proven over and over. Crime rates drop dramatically every time gun control is removed! Also they
increase dramatically when it is implemented like in England.
I don't believe so, and I didn't say taking away guns ends crime I said this & I stand by it (if you made it harder for kids/idiots/social retards
to acquire guns then you have less deaths at their hands).
I'm no gun control nut I own multiple fire arms, legally and safely, the fact still remains most people act on impulse especially young males. Take
away there accessibility they have time to cool down instead of doing something rash, look at your school shootings here 90% of kids wouldn't be able
to get there hands on a gun in US I would say 90% could have them before the day was out. How many School shootings or just gun confiscations do the
US have compared to Oz explain that to me. If my kid came home from school after a year of bullying and abuse they could get access to my guns but
they would need an angle grinder or something, I bet most American kids just have to open dads cupboard, top desk draw or their own. see the
difference which parent is more likely to know something is wrong the one who didn't hear or see anything or the one who goes holy hell that sounds
like a grinder on metal or WTF are all these metal shavings doing over the bedroom floor.
Yes Knives kill more people that guns but I would wager if every house/workplace or what ever had 20 plus guns loaded in the kitchen draw you would
see very different stats. I would take a scared kid/drug addict/crazy guy with a knife over one with an automatic any day, shaky hand with a knife =
dropped knife or ineffective attack, shaky hand & a hair trigger = I really didn't mean to shoot him or the woman holding the baby behind him.
I assure you it was a lot easier here to get a gun before gun laws were reformed sure you can still get one especially in Sydney/melbourne but most
other places it would take more than a walk down the street hitting up the first unsavoury looking guy you find & you would need more expendable cash
than the typical school kid bogan has, before you would go next door and hit up old mate he would of sold his gun which hadn't been used in 10 years
for a case of beer.
Don't compare drugs and guns, one is manufactured with serial numbers can be traced etc & the other is grown in a hippies back yard or undergoes
basic chemistry, if we had the same laws relating to ephedrine ect here as the US we would have a Meth dealer on every corner and the associated
problems like US, yes you can still buy meth but I would wager not as easily as America, So here drug control has made drugs harder to get but this is
not the good old US of A.
In conclusion gun control here has made guns harder to get, just like drug control has made drugs harder to get, did they go to far IMHO yes would the
alternative be better probably not.
Once again on topic who is getting these things and what is their stipulated use.
