I guess they forgot to add the important “Not Even Biker Gang Members Are Allowed to Own Guns” section to the law. That would have made all the difference, I think. Probably the invading gang mistakenly thought that the law against guns didn’t apply to them.
One of the guys in the house had a gun in a bag he was carrying.
Here’s some basic things that anyone with the most rudimentary common sense should be able to understand.
If you’re going to break the law, don’t do it in the middle of the street.
If you’re going to hang out with people, don’t hang out with people who are so stupid that they smoke pot in the middle of the street.
If you’re going to hang out with people that stupid, don’t have a gun in a country that absolutely bans handguns.
If you run a country, don’t ban honest and responsible citizens from having guns. That means that the only people who have guns are people so stupid and irresponsible that they hang out with druggies who smoke pot in the middle of the street.
He stole the gun from his father’s gun repair business and sawed it down to size.
This just goes to show you that when someone decides to become a criminal, they don’t let a little thing like not owning a gun slow them down. They steal what they need, modify it how they want, and don’t care about all the other laws they are breaking.
No one’s really sure how he got shot, but it does seem to fit with the general “criminals get shot more often” pattern we see here in the USA.
Someone needs to explain to me why a country that absolutely bans handguns has armed robbers getting shot. Isn’t that exactly the sort of thing that gun laws were intended to prevent? Armed robbers, and gunshot wounds?
So you live in Australia. You’re in your own home. Your government makes it illegal to own any semi-auto centerfire rifles, pump shotguns, and makes pistols extremely difficult to get. You should feel pretty safe from gun violence, right?
You have to hope that a track record of massive failure will eventually lead people to question this stupid policy of disarming the law-abiding while doing nothing to stop criminals from having all the guns they like.
Newsflash: the gun didn’t attack anyone. It was a person using the gun to attack people. A person who was willing to break all the relevant laws against trying to harm people, and was somehow not slowed down by the laws against having guns in (Formerly Great) Britain.
