Quote of the day

What we’re up against:

Australia, correctly in my view, does not have a Bill of Rights, so our legislatures have more say than America’s over many issues of individual rights, and our courts have less control.

Well, they are subjects.

    “….Australia, CORRECTLY IN MY VIEW, does not have a Bill of Rights.”

    Which is why you come from a Nation of Sheeple, Mr. Howard, and may you live long enough to see the Land Down Under become the next Province of the People’s Republic of China.

    Yeeah, why the fuck would I want the political opinion of somebody from somewhere that still has the union jack on their flag? I don’t give a damn about their politics, why do these bastards think any of us want to hear from them?

    And you notice he doesn’t tell you that their ovarall violent crime rate has tripled since the gun ban. What a hypocrite.

    Why is an Armalite a rifle and an SKS is an assault weapon?

    Thank goodness nobody is committing suicide any more. As we all know, guns cause depression.

  5. RC Says:

    Ummm…somebody should clue him in that our Bill of Rights does not grant rights, it simply recognizes natural rights that all human being have, even his subjects and makes the point that government is prohibited from interfering with those rights. His head would probably explode if someone told him that the items mentioned in the Bill of Rights are just the ones called out and that Americans have all manner of various rights that are not explicitly mentioned.

    Almost 700,000 guns were bought back and destroyed — the equivalent of 40 million guns in the United States.

    So if there are an estimated ~300 million guns in this country, then apply a little math [(0.7)/x]=(40/300), x = 5.25. In other words, Mr. Howard claims that out of 5.25 million guns, they collect 700,000.

    Sometimes I think the lack of basic algebra skills are more of threat to this country, than potential disarmament. Sometimes…

    He’s lying about the outcome of the law as well. If you look critically at the data looks as though the law made no measurable difference on violent crime, murder, suicide or anything else. The wiki page on Australian gun control has the breakdown.

  8. sendarius Says:

    … it also made little to no difference in the number of guns held by Australians.

    I for one, and all the gun owners that I know, used the confiscation funds to buy more (and more powerful) guns than we had before.
