Pass a New Gun Control Law, Make Lots of New Criminals Out of Good Citizens
Australia has “tightened” the “loopholes” in its gun laws again, and is about to engage in
a buyback compensated confiscation of firearms from innocent civilians. But many, according to this report, won’t comply. And that will make them criminals. In for a penny….
The money quote?
Geelong Gun and Rod Association president Miles Hodge said most antiques were harmless because ammunition was unavailable “or they’re so ancient they’re more likely to blow up in your face than they are to kill someone”.
He said the buyback would not make the community safer because illegal unregistered firearms used for criminal purposes outweighed registered banned guns used by genuine collectors.
That’s because it isn’t about safety. It’s about control.
