    Hmmm ..... UK all over again.
    So .. you admit to the BG's having guns and at the same time remove guns from legitimate ownership .... great, just great. So damned logical. Add to that, punishments for anything remotely approaching self defence ...... and what do you have?

    A tyranny ..... :(

    P95, not tyranny, just the natural course of democracy.

    A Republic for Oz now!

    Democracy=Tyranny. Yet another case in which the Founders got it right the first time.

    Tyranny is pretty near correct....

    I've been exchanging correspondence with P.M. Howard's 'senior adviser'
    Peter Conran since the handgun "buyback" surfaced in November of last year.

    In his latest letter of 9 July 03, Mr. Conran leaves no doubt as to the governments position and intent on this matter.

    Some of his statements:

    "The Council of Australian Governments' agreement on handguns identified further measures which will reduce the circulation of handguns in the community, restrict the availability of small concealable handguns and ensure only legitimate sporting shooters gain access to handguns."

    "It is the government's view that people should not have access to guns unless they establish a legitimate need for them. We do not accept that there is a right or a legal precedent for people to be armed. Firearms are potentially dangerous weapons and their misuse can have grave consequences."

    "The Prime Minister has led the development of a modern and comprehensive legislative regime to control firearms in Australia."

    :what: :barf:

    Well, short of Mr. Howard turning up on my doorstep with the Federal Police, I guess they told me what for!:uhoh:

    And, for the record...John Crook is a drooling idiot!:D
