Well get the guns out and shoot the M/Fers when they come for you, show the SOB's you will not be fcuked with, stand up to them,“on your own two feet “ and when they shovel up your remains they will know that you were one tough bitch not to be fcuked with.

Pretty cunning of the wealthy capitalist when you think of it. Give the peasants as little as possible, send their jobs overseas then throw some guns at them and tell them to fend for themselves.

No I disagree, if you pull out a gun that is a threat.

Otherwise you could just pull out a vegimite and cheese sandwich saying here you go mate.

You pull out a gun as a threat to shoot, to kill. It's a weapon.

Protection is a condom which protects from STIs aye.. Nasty those diseases..

Protection is a helmate for your motorcycle

Protection is a bullet proof vest to protect you from a bullet!

If a store clerk is being robbed at gunpoint and the clerk pulls out a gun and shoots the robber and kills him, it was protection. A different perspective from behind the counter.:-)

Before you get into property crimes and give him what he wants, we have animals here that would shoot you just for the fun of it after he has what he wanted. I don't believe you have that element in your society yet. Before you get into gun control, these animals aren't supposed to have them now.

The United States uses its powerful position as a peace keeper. Australia is a close alli of the USA, people are always going to complain and say oh they were after oil or opium or whatever, but at the end of the day saddam hussein is dead, Ossama bin laden is dead. These were evil people who committed the most horrific crimes. Australia will always support the USA 100 percent in these situations. Back to the topic of guns we are not telling the Americans what to do, ultimately they will do what they like, we can only share our experience and reccomend that they take action on gun control.
While I appreciate the recommendation we also have had great experience with gun control. Our experience shows gun control to be dangerous and in the long term to usually lead to government corruption and increase in violent crime rate. Most on here want to compare the U.S. only to Australia but when a world comparison is used and a longer historical comparison then gun control usually fails.
