We're going to have to agree to disagree then. Even if you don't like the messenger, I think his points regarding Australia were reasonable and well thought out.

One could probably even say that the anti-gun crowd is cherry picking their case with Australia, when one should probably be looking at violent crime rates both pre- and post-gun law in other countries as well.

Walmart has never sold grenade launchers, contrary to your stock photo.

From what I've been able to find, Australia's gun laws enacted in 1996 haven't had much of an effect on violent crime. People can spin the numbers all they want, but one of the best summaries on the subject I've found is from author John Lott.

Here's a link to his very thorough blog post:

My overall position hasn't changed: If you don't like guns, fine, don't buy one. I can respect that. Just don't try to restrict my ability to protect myself and my family from violent attackers.

I'm glad you took the bait, which illustrates my real point; one I've been making for years.

Nowhere in this thread is anybody blaming the criminal for committing the crime.

Perhaps we can now start doing something about the media's fetishization of violent shooters. Does anyone seriously believe the killer wasn't thinking about becoming an instant cable TV celebrity when he murdered those two people?

Turn on a TV today and you'll see every news channel posthumously sucking that guy's cock while piously wrapping themselves in the first amendment.

Aug 11 CPN commented on City Council Approves Taxes on Guns and Bullets.
(sigh.)

What a stupid, useless tax.

As a seriously liberal fellow, it's always defied comprehension for me; my fellow liberals undying love for useless, feel-good bullshit gun laws that will have no effect whatsoever in reducing gun violence. This piece of shit in particular will be stricken down as unconstitutional before it will ever take effect... with nothing to show other than a giant legal bill for the taxpayers.

You all have been suckered by Tim Burgess' obvious and transparent ploy to boost his liberal street cred. The lefty zealots are just as delusional as the right-wing wackos pumping up Donald Trump.

P.T. Barnum was right.

I was with the police last night at Seafair. Radio traffic indicated the drowned man was in the water because he was assaulted.
