While Hillary Is Recovering From Her Collapse, Her “Australian Model” Gun Control is Collapsing “Down Under”

While campaigning earlier this year, a pre-collapse Hillary Clinton espoused support for the mandatory gun registration and and confiscation scheme forced on the Australian people 20 years ago after the Port Arthur massacre.

The thing is, Australia’s gun control scheme simply isn’t working.  Actually, that’s not accurate. It’s not only “not working,” it’s an utter train wreck.

    It may sound trite and simplistic but there is an undeniable grain of truth at the center of the saying “When guns are illegal, only illegals have guns”.

      At a stroke of the pen they would create a whole new criminal class, regular citizens who up until that moment were law abiding, who’s only crime, is their refusal to give up their means of self defense.

    There are also more legal guns than before the ‘gun ban’. The left in America are trying to do the same thing of course – use mass shootings as an excuse to ban guns – but I would be more concerned about a future ‘conservative’ government in this regard, because, as in Australia, a conservative government seeking to ban guns can not only count on the support of the left, but also the unthinking support of many of its own voters.

    That said, Australia has never had a significant ‘gun culture’ as in the US, and except for those living in ‘the bush’, the vast majority of ordinary Australians would never have fired a gun in their lives. I went shooting with my dad’s service rifle when I was a kid, but that was it.

      …with an estimated 300 million firearms currently in US citizens’ possession, plus 10’s of millions added every few months at a record pace…the US Citizen now owns more small arms than all of the World’s professional armies…combined.

    According to the 2A, any and all federal weapons laws are unconstitutional. ALL of them.
    Any prez who lets federal agencies enforce any of them is in effect violating his oath of office.

    In Canada, bill C-68 is also unconstitutional:
