This ain’t Australia, mate. It won’t work the same way here.

No kidding, there are probably 20 million guns in Michigan alone and the vast majority of them don’t even require registration.

The Aussies are apparently darn proud of having no Bill of Rights.

I concur.

I believe there is a great distinction between people seeking refuge from oppression and fighting for their freedom as our ancestors did and people being relocated from their country of origin to another place...........if that makes any sense.

To avoid any misunderstandings, I am in **TOTAL** disagreement with the Australian prime minister on gun control.

We have a Bill of Rights for a reason. I don't know Australian law and history well enough to comment, but my fear is that this example will get used by gun grabbers to make a so-called conservative case for gun control.

As supporters of the Second Amendment, I believe we need to watch this carefully. Efforts will be made to divide Republicans on gun control issues so we fight each other instead of the gun grabbers. We need to remain unified — either we have a Second Amendment, or we don't, and there is no excuse whatsoever for trying to do an end-run around the clear and obvious language of the Second Amendment.

Frankly, letting the courts or Congress ignore part of the Bill of Rights would be even more dangerous than actually repealing the Second Amendment. Once one fundamental right is voted away or judged away, we have no guarantee that any other right in the Constitution can be preserved.

I have a friend who moved back to Australia—where she was born.

She is living out and away from the cities & she is terrified of all the tgroublemakers who roam in the countryside. The only protection she has are her dogs—since she cannot have a gun to protect herself.
