    Default Australia Takes Aim at Guns, Again, After Confiscation Scheme Fails to Disarm Crimina

    "The much-heralded Australian gun confiscation scheme of the late 1990s failed to disarm criminals to such a degree that Australia is going after guns again, beginning in July of this year."

    "the gun confiscation scheme Hillary Clinton praised on October 16, 2016, as “worth looking at” for gun policy in America actually created an uneven playing field where law-abiding citizens turned in their guns while criminals retained theirs."

    It's all part of the plan. The failure of their feel good/unenforceable laws justifies them in saying, "See, if we have more laws, you all will be more safer and more better"maybe, extra better so we have to have more better laws." And, of course, criminals still find away.

    If the Aussies allow this to happen again then they've only got themselves to blame when they get reamed again! If they won't stand up to their government and say enough is enough then they deserve it when the man comes knocking and says "hand them over".......

    Its an amnesty,not confiscation like last time around.....no one really has to hand over anything.And probably most of them won't.

    There will be mostly beat up BB guns the Kids left behind when they grew up and moved out of home and rusty old clunkers handed in, but the cops will put on a great display of evil stuff they have confiscated from criminals for the lefty media to cream there pants over and fabricate a great story about the great success this amnesty was.

    My wife (then my girlfriend), her mother and I were seriously considering emigrating to Australia back in the 1970/1971 time period.
    I and my future wife were finishing college, I as a mechanical engineer, her as a K-6 school teacher.
    My future mother in law was a vice principal at a high school.
    At that time Australia was very open (well as open as a English country could be) to firearms.
    We decided against the move only because they wanted to send us to a new mining town out in the middle of nowhere about 300 miles North East of Perth, on the South West Coast of Australia.
    As things turned out, I'm glad we did not emigrate, as Australia went anti-gun a about 15 years later.
    We visited Australia for three weeks 14 years ago, and even visited the now fairly large city the Australian government wanted to send us to.
    It is a shame Australia went wackers on guns, as it is a very beautiful place, and I could live there without issue or problem, except for the gun thing.

    Even back in 1970/71 Western Australia was the worst State/Territory in Australia if you wanted to own firearms. Loony toon rules like high power/low power rifle category's, three letters of permission from farmers or cattle station owners to hunt on there land and you couldn't even buy a box of pi$$y .22 ammo without showing your firearms licence.

    The dealers love these amnestys,they get rare guns handed to them free,or for a couple of bucks.If the authorities cant stop container loads of ice and coke coming through the ports,theres not much chance of stopping illegal guns.Ive got no interest in them,although the first amnesty held in Qld[not 1996],I finished a project and got it registered no questions asked,whereas outside of the amnesty period,I would have had to get a licensed manufacturer to check and proof test it,at considerable cost.Nothing as opposed to $400-500.The big beneficiaries of the current laws are the dealers,they have little competition,and charge what they like.Example:ADI powders cost twice as much here,as in the US.Yet they are made here.Regards John.

    "University of Maryland Professor Peter Reuter and Jenny Mouzos, aptly titled, “Australia: A Massive Buyback of Low-Risk Guns.” The NIJ memo made clear that the researchers “found no effect on crime.”"

    You can copy that for all gun control laws. See:

    The Australian cops are wasting endless amounts of money on silly 3D printed guns,just stupid media stunts,when they should be busting all the crooked officials letting in tons of drugs.The biggest risk to society in this land is ice,probably 25% of young people are hooked,and its the number one source of income for organized crime,and terrorist groups.Regards John.

    Nah. It's a lot easier to pretend we're doing something by blaming the hardware and the law abiding citizens who own it.

    we have the same problem here in OZ, both big parties hate guns, and all the sheeple do is vote one lot out after a certain amount of time, then the next lot out, a circle jerk. hopefully more minor parties may put a crimp in the tail of the 2 majors.

    All the academics miss the point,the 1996 buyback wasnt intended to have any effect on crime.It was carefully planned well in advance to remove all stocks of the weapons favoured by Kanak fighters all over the Pacific.The French govt put a great deal of pressure on Oz to ban autos being smuggled into Noumea for the Kanak Liberation movement.The PNG govt needed pump shotguns denied to the local fighters and "rascals".The resistance on Bougainville was fuelled entirely by auto guns from Australia.This long lasting uprising cut off a major source of funding for the PNG govt,and required Australian aid money to make up the shortfall.Then the govt got its opportunity,and aided by the Murdoch media,created an antigun frenzy.Murdoch is the greatest enemy of Australian gun ownership.Regards John.
