I'm an Australian and it seems so stupid how the US still have widely available guns. Firstly; in Australia we had a mass shooting over a decade ago, where the then Prime Minister called a gun armistice (removal of guns) and introduced heavy gun laws. These laws made guns illegal (with very few exceptions) and has tightened it's grip on all weaponry. Since then: Australia's mass shootings have dropped to 0 (mass being more that 4 people), both the assault and suicide rate (firearm assisted) has been dropped from 60% and 40% respectively to virtually none and meanwhile America's numbers are still climbing. Secondly, I understand that you have your 2nd amendment, but that states that you have the right to bare arms IF you are apart of a government organised militia, in other words.. Police, security or army. Also the Constitution was written and signed in a time of colonialisation, raiding, murdering and civil war.. That time has past, and the need for internal weaponry has dispersed. Finally, I hear the argument "you can't get rid of them all, so why introduce laws that won't work?". I already stated that they will, but in any case.. You can't get rid of all drugs, drugs are illegal in America, should you just legalise all drugs because you can't get rid of them all? No. Of course not, it's a stupid argument. Anyone, argue against me on this if you must, but read my points first. I just believe that America needs to wake up and follow other people's lead for once.
