Australia’s Gun Buy-Back Fails

(Before It's News)

The willful stupidity of authoritarians who would deny us the fundamental right of self-defense in the name of fighting crime is staggering:

Australia on Friday announced a gun amnesty for next year after a criminal intelligence report estimated there were 260,000 illegal firearms in the country. …

“The amnesty will provide an opportunity for those individuals who, for whatever reason are in possession of an unregistered firearm, to hand it in without fear of being prosecuted,” Justice Minister Michael Keenan told reporters in Melbourne.

“While Australia has some of the strongest [i.e., most repressive] firearm controls in the world, illicit firearms remain the weapon of choice for criminals.”

Firearms are especially useful tools for criminals when they can be relatively sure that their victims will be unarmed, which is why there is no chance of Australia’s desperate amnesty having any positive results.

Unsurprisingly, Australia’s tyrannical gun ban has had very little effect on crime, and despite claims to the contrary, it has not put an end to mass shootings.

Disarming law-abiding citizens does not reduce crime, for reasons that should be obvious. Those who pretend otherwise soon end up making fools of themselves.

  • It is against the law to have anything, that could be used as a weapon, on your person, or in your car, or home.

    You’re not even allowed to own a sling shot.

    Only the criminals have weapons, or guns, because they don’t hand their guns in, like the ‘honest sheep’.
