You do realize that the amount of guns Australia owns currently vs before the Port Arthur shooting is higher now though, right? And with that in mind, when is the last time you’ve heard of a mass shooting in Australia?


I have no knowledge of how many guns Australians currently have. 

I DO know that after Port Arthur, massive legislative changes took place and THOSE are the reasons there are no mass shootings in Australia. American needs massive legislative changes or people are just going to keep dying.

“Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard, introduced strict gun control laws within Australia and formulated the National Firearms Programme Implementation Act 1996, restricting the private ownership of high capacity semi-automatic rifles, semi-automatic shotguns and pump-action shotguns as well as introducing uniform firearms licensing. It was implemented with bipartisan support by the Commonwealth, states and territories.” [source]

Emphasis mine. 

We desperately need nation-wide uniform licensing laws for firearms. These licensing procedures need to be stringent; it should be as difficult to gain a gun license as it is to gain a driver’s license.

*at the time of this performance, the Port Arthur massacre that resulted in 35 killed and 23 wounded was the worst mass shooting in history.
