Australia's "Good" Gun Laws

In 1996. after a mass shooting, Australian politicos passed some of the stupidest gun laws going. Those guns they didn't just BAN, they forced owners into licensing the ones they owned, so the government knew who had every gun there was. Those guns that were legally owned by law-abiding people, that is, while those who owned ILLEGAL guns ignored that. And, predictably, “gun crime” has skyrocketed. The result of those laws is that only the CRIMINALS have guns. And they use them to victimize those who obeyed those laws. In just the last 12 months, over 3,300 people were charged with gun crimes, and 9,000 illegally-owned guns were confiscated. Does that sound like those laws “solved” anything? What it proves is that the only people affected were law-abiding people, while criminals were affected, not at all. Still, American anti-gun fools keep touting Australia's “good gun laws” and deny the increase in gun crime CAUSED by those laws. (Guns 'n' Freedom)
