8. Maybe this will get the Australian gun laws and their effect on gun violence on the radar here.

I am so out of patience with effective gun laws being blocked by the preppers, the zombie phobes and the conspiracy theorists, and the over the top shoot, apart the house with really big guns home defenders. Guns are a part of our culture, but we let the stupidest, most inept and unbalanced people have easy access to them. Australia has figured this out. And I am not going to call them a bunch of weenie batters or cowering sissies. Not everyone needs to go around with a gun for "protection". And not all of the ones who do are proficient enough to use one effectively.

More guns equal more gun deaths. People used to understand this. For some people guns are like drugs. They are always going to want more. Requiring responsibility doesn't seem to be something that is valued. The people who respect guns and want to limit what they can do in irresponsible hands are not the ones being conned.
