Mate don't worry a few of the mentioned idiots are saying that gun control has worked in the UK and there's still gun related crime there but mention that and they change tact very quickly.
Also mention that where concealed carry is allowed in the USA crime is low and that really brings out the emotion with things like " there'll be more guns on the street and more shootings!".
Earlier in the year the New South Wales Premier Barry O'Farrel in conjuction with the Police Commissioner Scipione bought in 1 of the most useless bits of law ever made in the shape of a Ammunition Bill to try and stop drive by shootings in Sydney.
This Bill works along the line of any gun owner who buys ammo has to show his license and supposedly the papers to prove that he/she owns the calibres in question that they're buying ammo for so that this will stop crims from getting ammo..............................yeah right!
The last time I looked crims don't obey laws and another kicker was last year about 20 Customs workers/officials were nabbed allowing certain containers through inspection that contained drugs and guns plus a Post Office in Sydney was raided as the owners were importing gun parts into Australia illegally but this gets conveniently forgotten by the media and the anti's.
