So you speak for everyone stating you don’t mind being burglarized? You guys seem to be easy targets for criminals.
The fact is the numbers support the hypothesis that banning guns has little or no effect on crime and if anything it has emboldened home burglary. I
am sure there have been a few instances of people being home when it has happened it would be a miracle if there hasn’t. As you said these people
are probably drugies even worse. I wonder how the people who have been victimized feel about the gun laws. I think more than a few of them would
disagree with you on gun bans especially the ones that were home at the time.
In America we have home invasions and there have been more than a few occasions where it has turned violent. Maybe you guys are just lucky.
Hmmm lets see.......Google........Hmmm........Ehhem.....Ermm.....Tsk Tsk..
Nope you guys have the same problem. Too bad they didn’t have a pistol or a shotgun they probably wouldn’t have had bleeding on the brain or skull
What else .......Eww.....Its bad....OMG.....Poor girl.....I had no idea.
I see what giving up your guns has done. It has made you all easy targets. The more I look into it the more the statistics and facts show that a
weapons ban has been a huge mistake on your part.
You said you had a bad heroine problem we used to but now people are into Meth and some new drug called bath salts. I am sure you heard about the guy
that was eating another guy. A couple of instances like that have happened I think one guy was killed when he tried to eat a passer buy. CCW permit.
Very rare stuff but freaky. People acting like zombies. It’s a sick world.
I tell you this much if meth or bath salts catches on in your country you guys will probably be changing the laws for home defense. It is a bad
problem here in poorer states. My grandmother lives in Arkansas and I go out there twice a year a little hunting and fishing but you have to be weary
because you can walk up on a lab fairly easy. So much wooded land out there it’s easy to hide a trailer.
Hmmm lets see somthing.....When did you guys ban guns? Lets see..2002.
AUSTRALIA: MORE VIOLENT CRIME DESPITE GUN BAN
It looks like violent crime and sexual assault has risen in your country
•In 2006, assault rose 49.2 percent and robbery 6.2 percent.
•Sexual assault -- Australia's equivalent term for rape -- increased 29.9 percent.
•Overall, Australia's violent crime rate rose 42.2 percent.
Anyway facts are facts. I guess this has been the reason no one from the anti-gun camp has tried to present evidence to support their position.
Usually when someone has a strong case you see them post links graphs and quotes.
You guys do not even boarder a third world country. You are secluded and as a nation without any outside pressure have shown without a doubt baning
guns hasn’t effected murder rates and since doing so crime has risen in some cases doubled. Yet in America we relaxed the laws and crime including
murder has dropped.
I am sorry but you haven’t provided any evidence to support banning guns. You are solely motivated by your disdain for them and your entire position
is only backed by emotion. You have helped me realize that banning guns would be a huge mistake. Facts and evidence can sway me not emotion.
I didn’t really want to talk about it on this thread anyway but I feel like the matter is fairly settled.
I originally was here to find out more about Australia from locals somehow it switched to your old thread. Oh well it made me look up the statistics
for your country so mission accomplished. Funny thing is I thought before today that people were embellishing the truth when they said crime went up
after the ban there but it turns out they were right.
