Australian Official: Gun Control Protects Us From Terrorism

posted on November 25, 2015

Apparently Australia doesn’t have to worry too much about the kind of terrorist attack that Paris recently experienced, according to Justice Minister Michael Keenan. Why, because you’re on the other side of the world? No: “The robust gun control that we’ve had in Australia for the past 20 years would mean that it would be very difficult to get your hands on those sort of high-powered weapons that we saw used in the Paris attacks,” he told ABC radio.

Wait, what? It’s been established that Australia is flooded with illegal firearms, as organized crime groups continue to freely traffic in guns. There’s no reason to think that terrorists would have any difficulty in finding their preferred armament in the country. What is doubtful is that the victims of a potential attack would have the ability to defend themselves.
