Australia does not want to ban guns totally. We have a large number of shooters and it is growing.
In Australia we have a small minority of anti-gun people who make a lot of noise and spread a lot of lies. Australia has very biased liberal media that gives any leftwing nut case unlimited airtime.
The most popular subscription magazine is Australia is a shooting magazine and newsagents have lots of gun magazines, these are among the top read magazines. There are no anti-gun publications and these organisations never declare how many members they have. As I said earlier its just a handful of sooks that make lots of noise.
So don't take what Ahomona says as the voice of Australia. People don't listen to people like her in Australia and nobody in the USA should either.
Oh, She likes blowing her own horn, after all, only a handfull on here agree with her. I wonder if she even knows why the second admendment was created in the first place?
She said in a earlier post something in the nature of her against child sex slaves, kidnapping, rape, etc injustices in othe countries besides america. I challange anyone to go and find post as to where this hethern has said any negative things about such. It took me awhile, but I finally realized she is an american hater and only an american hater. She has proven herself uninformed and most of all, a liar.
Not once have I read a negative comment made by her about the human rights violations of china, thailand, etc, and all other things wrong with the worl. According to her, everything wrong with the world is americas fault. Its plain to see that this woman is no freedom lover, she's a communist or/and a muslam lover who spreads disinformation and pure lies.
Whats even more funny is the fact that she believes she is always right. Well, thats the first sign of a fool.

It doesn't affect Australia until an American company gains control, look what happened with Microsoft or the Movie Idustry, Amway, wars,Coca Cola, Hungry Jack, Kentuck Fried etc do you think the NRA will be satisfied supplying guns to only war zones like your country, Oh No! they will try to move in on us and I am making a pre-emtive strike and heading them and you idiots off at the pass, if we wait till you slow pokes realise how they have manipulated you to sell their products it just won't happen, else you wouldn't have the fattest people in the developed world, and it will as it always does effect Australia. I understand how the US big bussiness works and what happens when they get too big for the dumb yanks, We choose what we want to keep and throw away from the US and we Australians don't want your sick gun mentality to infect us here down under.
Some americans are fat, I agree. I have seen a few fat aussies too, as well as any other nationality. What/how does americans being fat effect you? It doesnt. Our gun laws do not effect you in the least, and you're a liar if you say it does.
B4 you goggle it, do you even know why the 2nd admendment was made in the first place? Now, go google it and get back at me.
Yeah, we yanks are really dumb arent we. We're so dumb we did in 200 years what the rest of the world has been trying to do for thousands. I wont go and list all the good accomplishments the 'dumb' yanks have made, it'll take too much time. But even a fool like you knows the truth wheter you'd admit it or not.
And what makes you think the yanks give a rats ass as to what YOU think? You overestimate yourself, you act as if YOU'RE important. You're a nobody just like the rest of us, a voice among millions, thats all.
And dumbass, all yanks arent fat.

So you hate yanks because they have good food? Yes, we even have thai food, chinese, mexican, arab, english, german, you name it, we have it. So dont be mad bc our people dont eat rice and rats every day, someday, when your country grown up, maybe, youll have good food too. Until then, guess you'll just have to envy us and west.
Bon appeite! BTW, if you're 22% body fat, you're FAT! Guess you been sneaking around the garbage dumpsters after restraunts close for the night.

Most people are apathetic but it only takes those interested in a cause to change things, look at the Vietnam war protesters and Martin Luther or Ghandi....The government doesn't act unless you show them that it will harm them politically to do nothing that is where individuals with a belief in something rally others and it does work, but it takes time and effort and often a lot of courage to come up against popular opinion even though they know they are wrong, the gun debate is the perfect example of this and you are doing your bit, as are all those who see the idiocy behind gun ownership for the sake of it.
True, but I think we are losing the battle over guns.

I was kidding when I said I was apathetic.

Guns will be the least of our problems if China keeps hacking into and stealing valuable information from large U.S. corporations.

We could be looking at something catastrophic happening.

In respect of obesity, here in Australia we have the same problem as most of the developed 'western' countries - much is being done to raise public awareness, as I'm sure is also the case in America.

Thank you sairla, you are one of the few, very few I might add, that realizes this. I guess when a person cant come up with anything to down someone or a nation they rely on silly childhood slurs like,' your moms so fat' and junk like that.
Thanks for being a 'real' human with some sense about her.

Sairla, I think there is a correlation between obesity and economic pressure on families. Where once one partner could earn enough to provide for the family and pay off a house, now both partners are required to contribute to buying the house, consequently normal family life and meal preparation have become disrupted and more and more people are taking the easy way out and buying take away.

Alot of people are obese in america bc they work all the time, some even have two or more jobs, and just dont have time to cook or eat healthy. And yes, some are fat bc they are lazy and dont exercise.
Its easy to go mcdonalds and get a few burgers instead of cooking, doing dishes, and then other homely things b4 you return to work.
Thats really no excuse, but it is the truth. Also, its very very expensive to buy healthy food. Some people think I'm crazy or lieing when I say this, but its true, I have never eaten any kind of fast food. I have never eaten outside of my home or family members home. After all, I dont trust others to prepare my food. I mean really, do you know the person, does he/she wash their hands after going to the toilet? Or maybe the person is pissed at the world that day and decides to spit in your food. It does happen you know.
And frankly after discovering topix australia if I lived there theres no way I'd eat there bc of all the racist remarks here. Theres no telling how many foreigeners have done something to the white mans food, or vise versa.
