Victory Down Under

Already hobbled by punitive gun laws that often leave them unable to defend themselves, Australian gun owners continue to beat back further restrictive proposals. According to reports from Down Under, law-abiding firearm owners there scored a resounding victory in response to a recent Senate inquiry that attempted to blame them for a perceived increase in violent crime.

Instead of supporting further bans, the majority of senators attending the inquiry actually recommended that state and territory governments investigate avenues to decrease regulation of the firearm industry to ease the economic burden on governments, industry and legal firearm users. We send kudos to Australian firearm owners and those public officials who stand up for them.
