So the new goal of gun control supporters is apparently to embrace full-scale confiscation of private weapons as Australia did in the 1990s.
Apparently only this will end the scourge of gun-related crime.
Two men are reportedly dead after opening fire on NSW Police headquarters in Parramatta
Holy crap! But, but, they banned guns! Why President Obama himself said that if only we embraced the gun control of Australia...
Yeah, so guess what: it doesn't work.
Oh, and for the clowns who keep chanting that Australia has ended the threat of massacres, try looking up the Sydney coffee house shooting.
I can see how you might have overlooked it, since it was less than a year ago.
You know, I was willing to cut the gun controllers some slack years ago when international news was slow so you could forgive them for not knowing that yes, massacres still happen in countries with strict gun control.
But given both the Charlie Hebdo massacre and the fact that a train massacre was stopped through the heroics of a a handful of American GIs on vacation - you know, stories that actually got a lot of media attention - I am now convinced that these people are completely, irredeemably stupid.
Logic will not penetrate the fog that surrounds their brain. They are so loyal to their tribal beliefs that facts are powerless before their invincible ignorance.
Just once I'd love a reporter to ask the president that if gun control will solve these crimes, how come countries with the kind of gun control he wants are still seeing them?
Yeah, I won't hold my breath on that one.
