Dumb question....

Oh, maybe a home invasion robber armed with a bat.

Or a jihadist terrorist armed with a friggin box cutter. It sure would've been nice if someone could've shoved a shotgun in their murderous faces!

Just for starters..........

My evidence is that you have none to support your assertion. Asserting something without evidence is lying. You are asserting it happened, I'm saying I see no evidence to suggest this, you don't present any, therefore you are lying. I'm just asking for evidence to support your assertion, so where is it?
Oh, and the turn about only works when you actually are on equal terms, we're not, you made the assertion, I did not, you cannot turn that about.
There, you did it again - pretending that your word is evidence. It don't work that way, Koder.

See watch, I can do it too: My evidence is that you have none to support your assertion. Asserting something without evidence is lying.

Koder says the Great Flood didn't happen, that's fact.

Redneck says the Great Flood did happen, he's lying.

"The New York Times has referred to Australia's gun laws as a "road map" for the US, saying that "in the 18 years before the law, Australia suffered 13 mass shootings - but not one in the 14 years after the law took full effect."

It does not matter who reported what, the facts are simple:-

"in the 18 years before the law, Australia suffered 13 mass shootings - but not one in the 14 years after the law took full effect."

The same thing was reported in the OZ press.

Just because I did not write down every reason, does not mean that I forgot anything.

People who break the law are not going to give up their guns, right? So, by taking guns away, you are mostly only helping the criminal.

I realize the argument is, it wouldn't be as easy, if they did not have firearms, and that is true.

But it still can be done.

Childers Palace Fire - In June 2000, drifter and con-artist Robert Long started a fire at the Childers Palace backpackers hostel that killed 15 people.

Monash University shooting - In October 2002, Huan Yun Xiang, a student, shot his classmates and teacher, killing two and injuring five.

Luckily, Huan was a lousy shot.

Actually I like Australians gun laws.

If Iím correct citizens can still own guns but they canít be semi-automatic or fully automatic.

That would be difficult to pull off over here in the US. I would be in favor of limiting all gun magazines to 8 rounds. Both for handguns and semi-auto guns. Fully automatic weapons should be completely outlawed here.

We also need a law that all guns must be secured.

Armor piercing ammo needs to be outlawed.

Another factor is the gun violence being betrayed by Hollywood and E-Games.

We shall see what our President can get done on this issue. I support some changes.

Gun laws may help some but nut jobs will find a way to be murders like the goons that killed 173 people in your country by arson.
