    Reality Check: Did Australia And Great Britain See Lower Gun Violence After Mass Conf

    Not sure exact area this belongs, so put it here.

    Reality Check: Did Australia And Great Britain See Lower Gun Violence After Mass Confiscation?

    Interesting article - contains video for those too lazy to read.

    Only days after mass shooting at the community college in Oregon, President Obama said that the United States needs to follow the lead of Great Britain and AustraliaŚnations that instituted large scale gun bans and confiscation after mass shootings on their soil.

    So would it work here?

    Maybe the more important question is: did it work there?
    I would rather go hunting with Dick Cheney than a car ride with Ted Kennedy.

    Yep, gun bans certainly curtail gun violence.

    And we are two very different countries and cultures.

    Wouldn't the world be a boring place if we were all the same....

    Considering I have always thought and again comfirmed,you to be a Moron,the Gun Ban came in after the Port Arthur Incident,and because of it.....so your ill informed time-line and post is rendered irrelevant,as USUAL.

    You are just wilful for the sake of it.theliq

    @theliq it is not in the rules exactly except for worst of names, but as a rule we really do not name call here. Was it really necessary to call TC a moron??

    I'm just considering the source.

    The Logan shooting?
    Monash University?
    Hectorville siege?
    Geoff Hunt?

    All after Port Arthur. All by guns. All violent. If you want, I can also look up mass stabbings. Or weren't these reported in "The Comet"?

    Oh, and since you decided to ignore my first link, and only derisively sneered at the second, I am going to quote from the first:

    “In this paper, we re-analyze the same data on firearm deaths used in previous research, using tests for unknown structural breaks as a means to identifying impacts of the National Firearms Agreement. The results of these tests suggest that the NFA did not have any large effects on reducing firearm homicide or suicide rates.”

    And a second report concluded that while the mandatory program did reduce the rate of “accidental” firearm deaths, it had no influence on firearm homicide in Australia and it also did not end mass shootings.
    You can sweep it under the rug all you want, but the violence is there in your country as well.

    Oh, and a side comment:

    We don't, in this country, have an ongoing serial murder spree involving bodies dumped in barrels of acid, and I doubt we, in this country, would turn it into a tourism destination.
    I would rather go hunting with Dick Cheney than a car ride with Ted Kennedy.
