24. How does that square with Australia's reform?

"Almost two weeks after a shooting spree stunned Australia in 1996, leaving 35 people dead at the Port Arthur tourist spot in Tasmania, the government issued sweeping reforms of the countryís gun laws.

There hasnít been a mass shooting since.

Now, after the recent shooting at a Connecticut elementary school, Australiaís National Firearm Agreement (NFA), which saw hundreds of thousands of automatic and semi-automatic weapons bought back then destroyed, is being examined as a possible example for the US, to mixed reaction in Australia."
