Aussie Criminals Arming Up Despite Gun Ban

posted on September 13, 2016

A new report out of Australia shines more light on the fact that gun bans only affect those willing to obey laws, not violent criminals wanting to prey on the disarmed masses.

A feature story at theage.com titled “Young, Dumb and Armed” states, “Despite Australia’s strict gun-control regime, criminals are now better armed than at any time since then-Prime Minister John Howard introduced a nationwide firearm buyback scheme in response to the 1996 Port Arthur massacre.” 

“They’re young, dumb and armed,” one former underworld associate, who survived a shooting attempt in the western suburbs several years ago, told the website. “It used to be that if you were involved in something bad, you might have to worry about [being shot]. Now people get shot over nothing—unprovoked.”

Well, at least Aussies can look at the bright side: All those pesky law-abiding citizens worried about self-defense aren’t armed to cause problems for the emboldened criminals.
