This ain’t Australia, mate. It won’t work the same way here.
So you might as well be talking about ‘Earth’ and ‘Mars’ then, which leaves the point is utterly meaningless.
I dont know possessed the estimable Aussies to obey your fascistic command but I know I speak for more than a few million Americans when I tell you or any other gungrabber to pound sand.
This is not Australia.
Liberal Democrats and anti-gun Republicans will be looking for ways to divide conservatives on guns, and examples from other countries probably need to be used since most of the high-profile anti-gun Republicans (Bloomburg, for example) have been driven out of the GOP, or at least out of politically relevant leadership positions.
The comment by the author at the end of my excerpt that he doesn't think there should be Bill of Rights because it restricts legislative power is a particularly blunt warning — that is why we need a written constitution (unlike Britain) and a written Bill of Rights that cannot be amended without supermajorities of the Congress and the states.
I guess you guys must NOT treat gunshot wounds then eh?/sarc
“the United States had to fight for it”
Wow. And if the legislature has say over it then it is a privilege and not a right. A privilege which can be taken away at the legislature's whim.
>>> Also, we have no constitutional right to bear arms. (After all, the British granted us nationhood peacefully; the United States had to fight for it.)
Well, then you Aussies need to wait for your next overlord to grant your ‘freedom’ peacefully.
[Sorry I didn’t read the whole article, the excerpt is as far as I can stomach.]
So you did it because you could and the hell with those who wanted to keep their weapons: because they had no bill of rights.
Yeah,,,,spoken like a true fascist azzhole...sorta like the one we have now.
Except we do have a bill of rights and we know how to fight for it.[At least we did...some of still remember.]
Yeah, you acted in a way that caused an increase in violence against innocents. Way to go!
And, this should not come as a surprise to anybody with more than half a brain, he's PROUD of the results. Exactly what was intended. Enable thugs, disparage honesty.
Australia, correctly in my view, does not have a Bill of Rights,
ever heard of the Magna Carta, fellow ???
Around 1 million guns were surrendered and destroyed. The Australian government claims it was 1/3 of the nation's private arsenal, so by their own admission 2/3 of the guns are still in private hands as contraband.
The difference is here in the colonies we kicked the bastards out of power and adopted a Bill of Rights.
Australia continued to be under British Law and never corrected that problem when they became officially independent.
I’ll never understand surrender monkeys. A lot of Australians have their roots in people who were imprisoned and sent there by the Brits. You would think that they would re-assess some of the baggage of being a British serf.
Its sort of like the Welsh and Scots volunteering to fight for the evil descendents of Edward Long Shanks.
Hey John, you’re lecturing. Martin Bryant, the mentally disturbed shooter was the problem, not the gun.
All your actions on gun control reminds me of the guy who took his car to the shop because his brakes quit working.
When he picked up his car, the mechanic told him
“We couldn’t fix the brakes, so we turned up the volume on the horn”
You fix everything but the problem.
I’m guessing that half of the firearms purchased since Obama seized power would be turned in if the tyrant demanded it. That leaves only 33 million firearms for the ATF and others willing to violate the Constitution and our God-given human rights to take by force. When you consider how many things will go wrong in the first few hundred thousand attempted seizures, with each side knowing that the other side is armed and at least potentially willing to shoot, that will become problematic quickly.
