Here in Australia, the homeowner is not allowed to obtain any kind of a gun. I envy you guys in America. We have had instances here in Australia,
where intruders have broken into a home, tripped over something in the house, and sued the homeowner. The laws in Australia suck.
Two people in my area have recently been charged for transporting guns in a car. Apparently, the guns should have been locked in a secure container
of some sort. I have no idea how these elderly people obtained the guns - but they could go to jail.
If we were allowed to buy guns in Australia - I would. Sure we have some defences set up - but you would need to get up real close to the bad guy to
do any good. I had one instance when I was downstairs, I looked up and saw a large Maori guy standing a few feet away from me - in my backyard.
Luckily he was spooked and ran away. I did not have any way of defending myself.
Gun ownership laws should be changed in Australia - but the chances of that happening are about the same as a ufo landing in my backyard - another
wish I will never see.
