LOL.Get with the programme Geoffrey!
The USA desperately WANTS to install Military bases in Australia. They have been asking for permission to base naval and air bases in Australia.
We dont have to go anywhere. The US is begging to come to Australia.
Get with reality. If our Queen agrees, we just might accomodate the American desire to get into this part of the world.

The US public is the largest armed defense force on earth.
You couldn't give aussies enough guns to defend themselves. The Indos alone outnumber them like 8 to 1. The greedy Brits went an ocean too far with that one.
I have REAL problems with the US taxpayer funding the defense of that lost cause. They need to get back to England where they belong before the locals give them all the chop.

Not all armed Americans are responsible for your 30,000. Maybe if we took care of the few who were responsible that number would drop. RE; Chicago, LA, and the rest of the GANG VIOLENCE. Regards

You can cry and pee-pee in your diaper and quote all the bogus numbers you want, little unarmed sheep.

We ain't giving up our guns like a bunch of cowed slaves.

You should leave out effective when it comes to gun control and add the word effective to government control.

Of course no source was given.
That number probably includes suicides by firearm. Most gangbangers are such lousy shots they fire a thouand rounds and only hit some 6 year old 3 blocks away.

The only thing that's hysterical around here is this spocko weenie.

Well to be honest I only find it's screeching amusing.

Quite amusing - but hardly hysterical. Keep poking it and see how long it can keep screeching like a gerbil on LSD.

Let's face the real issue. The gun laws in Florida need to be changed.
Minors, like Trayvon Martin, should be allowed to carry pistols loaded with hollow point bullets. Then when they go to the shop for some lollies and get frightened by "creepy assed crackers" they can pull the gun out and diffuse the situation. And if the cracker goes for his gun then the kid canm shoot him and still make it safely home to his family.
