The thing is with all this 'gun control' talk and thinking that removing fully automatic guns will solve anything, is that approx. 1% of the
population have a genetic make up that makes them want to kill people and have no remorse for doing so. How does any form of 'control' stop those
people from doing what they are agruably born to do ?
Personally, i think a form of birth control would be more affective than any gun control and doing our best to wipe out that approx. 1% from society.
And the people that say banning fully automatic guns is THE answer, then i ask them THESE question.............'how does that stop the black market
for fully automatic weapons ?', and 'how does that solve the approx. 1% of people born with a want to kill ?'
Look how many people we have in jail for murder, despite having existing laws for murder. We have rules and fines for speeding in a car, yet look at
how many people get booked every day. And how does a gun buyback, or gun control scheme work when one of the guns used at Port Arthur was ALREADY
HANDED IN AND LISTED AS SCRAPPED ?
And i just noticed that clown John Howard showing his mug on TV and talking about how great his gun control laws were. Yet John Howard failed to
address certain issues..........
1. Why does Sydney have a shooting epidemic [mainly with stolen or untracable guns] if Australia is so much safer after HIS gun buy back scheme [does
anyone else see the irony in using the word 'scheme' at the end of it?]
2.Why was one of the guns used already listed as scrapped but then somehow got 'unscrapped', and then across Bass Strait all the way down to a
sleepy tourist town and into the hands of a man with an IQ slightly higher than a retarded person.
3. Why has he not asked former NSW Premier Barry Unsworth why he specifically mentioned a "massacre in Tasmania" in reference to bringing in the gun
control that mnay Australian politicians wanted so badly [even before the Port Arthur shootings].
4. Well i only have the 3 questions for now, and until he can answer the first 3 then theres no point asking a 4th question, because until he can or
does answer them, it will just be little Johnny Howards pet project that got him slightly up the pecking order on the world stage.
The same John Howard that then introduced the Terrorist Act here in Australia which if you read it says, a terrorist is someone that disagrees with,
speaks out against, argues, or debates what their Government says or does. Therefore, according to Howard's way, i am a terrorist for questioning the
official story of Port Arthur. John Howard did NOT bring in gun control for your or my safety or best interests, he did it because he knows that an
unarmed society will offer little resistance to any new laws or rule changes. John Howard did NOT introduce the Terrorist Act to stop a future
Terrorist attack, it was done to potentially label a domestic threat as a terrorist so they can then have a law that allows them to take them away,
hold them for an indefinate period without any legal representation [which is also known as torturing a confession until the legal team arrives].
And whether or not you argee or disagree with the US Constitution that allows them to bear arms, the fact that should never be forgotten is that that
Constitutional right was written in as a last resort to a corrupt Government. And we have never seen as much Government curruption as we are currently
seeing worldwide. So for those of you who say the Constitution is "out of date" or "written over 200 years ago", that is NO argument when you look
at the bigger picture of why that right was first written in. Government corruption has no use by date, or time frame, therefore the response to
Government corruption should never be classed as "outdated" either.
So, while Government corruption continues, then so should gun ownership. If you don't agree with this, then do more to stop Government corruption and
be prepared to speak out more about it without fear of being labelled a Terrorist by your own corrupt Government. But speaking out will only achieve
so much, and actions speak louder than words and our corrupt Governments know this, THAT'S why they want the guns taken off the people, and if anyone
think its for anything other than that, then it must be a deluded Utopia they live in !
