Australia in the wake of its gun law stiffening
From The Australian:
"Don Weatherburn, the chief of the New South Wales Bureau of Crime Statistics, said the pattern of firearms had made a "horrendous change" for the worse with handguns now responsible for between 50 and 60 per cent of annual gun deaths."
"Ms McPhedran said policies on gun control should be based on evidence and that homicide rates overall had remained relatively static since the Port Arthur massacre despite the gun buyback, while suicide rates have actually gone up."
What? Base policy on evidence? The "kill-the-babies-and-baby-the-killers" type liberals have ample evidence their policies allow criminals to terrorize and kill innocent citizens. Thats the way they like it.
