When guns were prevalent in Australia, we wiped out the aboriginal population in Tasmania completely and massacred thousands of 1st nation peoples. I could make a link here with why Mr.Average in the Australian suburbia hasn’t been able to carry a weapon for over 150 years. Just as well, judging by what we did when we had ’em.
Sure we have our massacres and gun fights but we also have an adequate police force to deal with this which keeps the guns ‘mostly’ off of our streets period. We even have laws preventing their import.
What I’m trying to say is that most Australians can’t understand a country that enables the common man to bear arms. Even though the 2nd Ammendment gives this right, it is to protect the ‘people’ against the ‘government’ and Downunder we just vote the bastards out.
This is a fundamental difference between our two nations.
