The types of criminals who have guns in Australia rarely shoot innocent people, they shoot other criminals.
The underworlds figures, asian gangs, mafia, bikies... they all have some sort of "code" where it is frowned upon to shoot innocents because of the
flack it will bring on them all. For now they are loving their antihero status and their glorification by tv shows such as underbelly.
The two-bit crim who wants to rob the corner store or a family home isn't going to be able to buy a gun without the right underworld connections, and
even if they could why would they buy a $5000 gun to rob $500 off you.
There are still guns around that escaped the buy-back scheme or are stolen from sport shooter or hunters, and they occasionally end up in some small
time crims possession, but the chance of you or your family dying from one is very very minute. You'd be better off spending your time and money
making your car safer.
