Australia needs to stop being so smug.
John Howard was the worst Prime Minister that ever served. Just because there have not been any gun massacres since then does not mean it was all because of him. Up until the late part of the 20th century we had very relaxed gun laws and no mass shootings at all.
Instead of locking away all guns, why don't they lock up some of the mental defects that they have running around now. I notice the gun massacres started at the same time they started closing down mental hospitals and letting the nuts run free. coincidence ?
