Australia Enjoys Another Peaceful Day Under Oppressive Gun Control Regime

Due to the nation’s controversial and oppressive gun restrictions, no one has died as a result of a mass-shooting on Australian soil today, for the 7158th day in a row.

Local cinema attendant, Christina Upton can’t believe it has been a whole 19 years and 7 months since a heavily armed white Australian male decided to shoot at a crowd of unsuspecting Australian civilians for no reason.

She says the peaceful two decades that have followed are “probably” because the Australian government decided to strip her of a God-given right to own projectile weaponry capable of shooting down helicopters.

“Yeah, I mean the Yanks come across as sick people. This year there have been more mass shootings in America than calendar dates… But it wasn’t that long ago that Australia had postal workers holding their entire office hostage with AR-15s”

Ms Upton, who claims to be able to walk freely outside of her home without fear of being killed by a mass shooter, believes that God-given rights probably play a bigger role in America’s mass shootings than Americans think.

“I don’t think America should be so hard on itself about the mental state of thousands of lonely white virgins. We have those people too,”

“…Just in our country those people don’t have access to Russian-made automatic assault rifles that have been invented purely to help military personnel win wars,”

“If I was in America, I’d be terrified of working in a cinema – for fear that one of these losers would use their God-given rights to murder me in cold blood,”

Per 100,000 residents in Australia, less than 1 are expected to be killed by a firearm this year. This is heavily contrasted to the 10.5 in 100,000 who will be killed in America.

Local cop, Uncle Rick Ridgeway, says that this is because idiots have a harder time getting their hands on machine guns than criminals.

“I think America needs to realise that it’s not really the criminals you need to worry about as such. I’d be more concerned about the weirdos,”

“Criminals use guns to help their efforts in making money through crime – they have much less interest in killing you,”

“Weirdos use guns to shoot up medical centres and primary schools for no reason other than the fact that they want to use their God-given rights,”

“In Australia. Our weirdos are forced to write stern letters.”

1. I wonder if Americans could seek refugee status in Australia.

Or any other country for that matter. It seems we have a very good reason. I think the cop is right. It's the weirdos we have to worry about. The garden variety criminals have guns more to scare us into giving up our stuff or stopping another criminal from infringing on their territory. It's the hoard of paranoid whack jobs, most likely created by the far right fear mongers, that are the problem.

2. Right on...

"There are many American traits which we Australians could well emulate to our great benefit," he concluded. "But when it comes to guns, we have been right to take a radically different path." - John Howard

"...the firearm homicide rate fell by 59 percent, and the firearm suicide rate fell by 65 percent, in the decade after the law was introduced, without a parallel increase in non-firearm homicides and suicides. That provides strong circumstantial evidence for the law's effectiveness."

That 59% decrease in the US would have saved about 160,000 lives in one decade.

4. I've probably crossed the border a lot more than you have. Never an issue for this citizen.

Even less for people who share borders with Canada. And, then, there is the rest our our country.

200,000 deaths by Americans with guns since 2010 but you're afraid you'll be killed by drug cartels?

5. islands

Just illustrating the connection between an island that can excersize strict control on who or what can enter its borders versus the US that has basically no control over its southern border. You stand a good chance in the US being injured or killed by either the drug cartels gangs and dealers or by the users of their product as they rob, burglarize, mug and invade homes in their quest for money or loot to finance their drug habits that keep the cartels in business. As stated, the best control is the ability to eliminate all unwanted movement across your border. A few thousand miles of water surrounding your home is a great deterrent.
