I did not realise this but apparently, the gun laws that were legislated in the wake of the Port Arthur Massacre have been gradually eroded over the years under pressure of Australia's gun lobby. So, anyone who thinks various statistics relating to gun crime in recent years have proved those laws to be ineffective, that's not actually true. I was shocked to find this out - it's gone on silently behind the backs of the voting public. Bastards!


Luckily so far down under no errosion has taken place in fact the Crazy Pauline Hanson (nee Pantsdown) has been caught with her crazy right wing One Nation Party - trying to take money from a fake NRA rep - read below :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

One Nation wanted millions from the NRA while planning to soften Australia's gun laws
By political reporter Melissa Clarke
Updated yesterday at 11:53pm

James Ashby and Steve Dickson speak to a fake gun lobbyist (ABC News)
RELATED STORY: Hanson's One Nation in damage control over talks with US gun lobbyists
Secret recordings of senior One Nation figures reveal the party wanted millions of dollars in political donations from America's National Rifle Association and discussed softening its policies on gun ownership as it tried to secure the funding.
Footage from inside the meetings, broadcast overnight as part of an Al Jazeera investigation, shows the pair seeking political donations and discussing political strategies to undermine Australia's gun restrictions.
Al Jazeera's investigation, which will air tonight on the ABC, involved setting up a fake gun lobby group called Gun Rights Australia headed by a fake gun rights advocate, Rodger Muller.

^^^^^ lock her up! ^^^^^

Locally the NRA and their pals have been spamming and crashing the NZ government & Police web sites set up for gun owners to register for the buy back scheme to legally hand in their now illegal firearms and accessories.....They've also been putting up their own fake sites purporting to be the official sites with contradictory information on the new gun regulations.....

They have also crashed some of the pages set up for donations for the shooting victims and their families, these f@#kers have no shame.....

Probably your intention, but just to spell it out... they can't control their guns at all.

^^^^^^^^^^ . . . and the point is?

I can't speak for the other above-listed cities, but in the District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) all one need do is cross the nearby border into Virginia or Maryland, buy weapons, and bring 'em back.

Man shoots himself at baggage carousel in the US
06:20, Sep 28 2019

123RF
The incident happened at Portland International Airport.

US authorities say a man shot and wounded himself during a struggle with a police officer at the baggage claim area at Portland International Airport.

Port of Portland spokeswoman Kama Simonds says the man suffered a non-life-threatening injury and was taken to a hospital.

Simonds said the officer contacted the suspect about 5am on Friday (local time) and the man pulled a firearm.

The suspect shot himself during a struggle, and Simonds said the officer did not fire his weapon. The officer received a minor injury, not due to a gunshot.

No flights were impacted by the shooting and an investigation continues.
