Yeah, so many mass shootings back then. Just give me a minute or so to reload...

Of course we have similar policies in place in the UK.   A lot of our supermarkets will not sell eggs or flour to teenagers at Halloween!

Why, is it the only place that sells?   Good to see some social responsibility.

I think some people talk about firearms like their experts but the reality is they wouldn't know the dangerous end from the safe end.  And firearms training in Stralia is for some taught by your dad and if you get something wrong you get a stern warning not to do it again...but do it twice and you some serious verbal abuse!  

LOL.

Thousands of Australian men have served and they've all been trained to use them by men that have used them in action ( or at least till the last of the Vietnam vets retired ).

 

I think I know which end the projectile comes out of.

In NZ hunting is huge, and also many thousands of guys have served even if most never saw action.

An obvious reason to not insist on a "one rule fits all" approach to gun control is that the needs in a crowded city are different from those in the country.

 

Does anyone living in a city apartment need a .303?  Do they need a semi-automatic assault rifle?

They do if facing possibility of home invasion by gangsters.

 

.303????????????????? That was WW2.

I particularly enjoyed Bernie Sanders' view on the matter. He said people in Vermont have very different circumstances than those in California, and gun laws should be left up to the individual states.

Oh, if only that pesky constitution didn't have something to say on the matter.

Since the end of the cold war, can you think of any time in any democratic country when armed civilians defended against tyranny?

Vietnam. And guess who won?

Well they certainly don’t feel the need for military style assault rifles and concealed handguns !

Mention was made of guns being banned in the UK...so I was wondering what they use for the fox and pheasant hunts. And not UK related, but I bet that teacher in Paris and the three people in Nice, including a little old lady, who had their heads chopped-off wished they had a concealed handgun.

Highly-trained hunting dogs, wolves and hawks and boomerangs and slingshots, of course. Being Jolly Olde England, there's always the trusty crossbows and longbows.😄
