    This might surprise you. The discussion is mostly pro-gun, or at least not anti so far.

    The article's just a reprint, but scroll down for the comments. Some examples:

    do you suppose that attitudes like yours and the laws they produce are the reason hundreds of thousands of your countrymen have emigrated to America?:scrutiny:

    Another 'well now my dear martin'

    Since you do not say what country you are from this may not apply to you. Is your country one in which there has never been a mass shooting? There is practically no country which has made it impossible for private citizens to own guns that has not had at least one mass shooting. If the citizens of these countries are not allowed to have firearms how are these people getting them? Why are British police, who never used to carry arms now finding it necessary to carry them?

    Here is the response I just posted on Commondreams:

    Martin, Since you do not say what country you are from this may not apply to you. Is your country one in which there has never been a mass shooting? There is practically no country which has made it impossible for private citizens to own guns that has not had at least one mass shooting. If the citizens of these countries are not allowed to have firearms how are these people getting them?

    If all these countries that have taken guns away from their citizens are so safe why do not only the police carry guns but in many countries the police are more of a military organization than an organization to protect the community? Why are British police, who never used to carry arms now finding it necessary to carry them?

    It was just a little interesting that those who aren’t above twisting news and statistics to their own advantage when trying to promote anti-gun laws immediately start screaming when some one posts facts about what gun contol really does. For the writer who claims the NRA figures about the crime rate in Australia are false I would suggest some honest research be done. However I can guarantee it will not done be because the writer might be forced to do something which they seem to be incapable of; that is think for themself and not parrot someone else’s comments.
