    Yeah, and I found the name Ãœbergang kind of humorously disturbing as the author of a gun control article.

    I wish Australia had a 'gun-culture'.

    90% of Australians wouldn't even spend 2 seconds per day thinking about firearms and the associated issues of firearms.
    They're generally so preoccupied with sport, beer, shopping, TV etc that they are your atypical western sheople.


    And one small point that that article failed to specify (because it doesn't have anything to refer to as far as I can recall ) is that, while children may be licensed sporting shooters, there have not been any major accidents/incidents associated with junior sporting shooters (and I'm sure even a minor incident would result in immense media coverage, but there's been none of that either).

    Well, at least Aussie children aren't being introduced to the evil "writing-paragraphs-with-more-than-one-sentence" culture.

    How is it our "culture" managed this debacle in less than 70 years? We(the US, Australia, Great Britain, etc) managed to forget everything that pertains to survival and independence and happily replaced it with dependency, inability and cowardice. Not that I don't know the "causes"; urbanization, technology, etc, but how could we so completely forget? How could we become so easily satiated by such shallow things as pro-sports and chain-stores?

    I'm amazed at times. Baffled. Depressed.

    If aussies get alarmed at kids with sporting shotguns... they really had better not look inside the homes of most THRers (like myself and NSF for example)

    In my opinion the communist/socialist influence and subversion of the last 50 odd years...

    I wouldn't believe anything Crook said. The truth is a complete stranger to him. Why any journalist would listen to him is a mystery. I guess journalists are just downright stupid - Australian ones, anyway.

    The Herald Sun is one of Rupert Murdoch's rags. :banghead:

    Well it amazes me that U.S. reporters quote the Violence Policy Center here. The truth isn't a stranger to them; it's their sworn enemy.
