    http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,22211295-661,00.html?from=public_rss

    We have some Aussie members here right? Is this guy for real? Does he really want to put officers' lives at stake like that? That guy is loony tunes in my opinion:eek:

    I'm not Australian, but I'm glad to see them try to put their police on the same level as their citizens, if it is the wrong level...

    OK Mods. Be fair and lock this. It belongs in the former L&P forum.
    Along with most of the interesting stuff more significant than whether 9mm or 45ACP is best for ... [whatever] ... .

    They are following Great Britain step by step, so I can't say this was not expected.

    Oh, dear, the horror. In the states, it can be 5 minutes or less (good thing for us).

    "99.5 per cent of people who take that test, pass it."

    "In other words, it completely lacks integrity"
    Did it ever occur to this guy that maybe 99.5 percent of people who want to buy a gun are good honest people. My guess is no

    Did anyone else see that it took that guy 46 minutes to shoot 26 people? I wiki'd the massacre, and the details are sparse, but it appears that they basically tried to hole him up instead of aggressively pursue an end to the violence. Seems to me like a failure on many levels... not law abiding gun owners, though.

    Graham Kent must be automatically sacked for his comments. Not only has he threatened law abiding gun owners, he has also threatened the personal safety of his fellow police officers. It is dangerous for Victoria Police to keep people like him as a police officer. He must be sacked immediately.

    agreed, and I love the word sacked in that context, imagine Don Trump saying "You're sacked!"

    What is it with antis and wanting lengthy training periods? I mean, yea, it's obvious they just want to make enough hoops to discourage anybody from trying, but, still. How could anyone believe training will prevent violence? If anything, wouldn't that make murderers (whom they mistakenly think obey the law to begin with) into more efficient killers?:scrutiny:

    "When you come to handguns they're even more stringent," Mr Cooper said

    Stringent might be an understatement, requirements for owning a handgun in Australia: Must be member of pistol club (in order to join, requires two letters of reference from people you know). Wait 6 months for club endorsed (clubs have no choice on this) probation period. Add on 28 days for licence waiting period and slap on another 28 for waiting period on your handgun. After you heroically fought/bashed/cut through all of the obstacles and red tape. Cops knock on your front door to check your storage requirements (ie gun safe).

    The irony is that Julian Knight would have had no difficulty passing a more "thorough and demanding" knowledge test: this was the one subject area he did well in at the Royal Military College Duntroon.

    He would however have failed the other part of the existing requirements, in that he was facing charges of assault, malicious wounding and GBH arising out of his stabbing his CSM in a brawl, and was on bail at the time he carried out his massacre. Under existing laws he could not legally hold or continue to hold firearms in such circumstances.
