Australians never thought a gun ban could happen. Then Aussie tax payers paid millions to ban guns. The result was a spike in violent crimes. Police can’t stop the crime.
In Australia you must apply for a “Permit to Acquire” a gun. Then you must show a “genuine reason” or “genuine need” to own a gun. If you are lucky enough to get the permit the gun is registered to you. This has the familiar ring of common sense gun control that we so frequently hear about here in the USA. And just so you know, self-defense is not an acceptable reason to own a gun in Australia.
