Default Re: Australia thinking of banning all firearms

yeah the buy-back was a joke. banning all guns would only hurt people who need them. farmers, roo shooters and the like. and ensure there is no chance of anyone defending themselves when they need it most.

one of the main reasons the japanese never invaded australia properly was because they knew everyone was armed. the army even handed out guns to people in some areas. my parents farm had several lee enfield .303 jungle carbines, as did many others in their area. times have changed eh?
