Time for all the moms (And Dads) living in suburbia to hand in their guns?


In Ausralia, not so many years ago, certain firearms weapons were banned and required to be handed in. Do you think this would work in the USA? Because of the recent tragic shootings. Could this be an option towards solving such tragedy's?

    There's a lot of stats available about Australia's buy back scheme and a decade after the law was introduced firearm homicides fell by 59% quite a large decline (Per Australian National University Study) as well as 65% decline in firearm suicides.

    Well said... The media plays a HUGE role in tragedies such as this... I have been doing everything I can to avoid reading at all about this piece of garbage... but because of the news media it is impossible...

    Our gun-related homisides have significantly decreased (59%) since the law was introduced. Do you think families should be able to keep high-powered weapons at home, fast firing weapons etc? I personally can't relate to those wanting a gun at home.

    More importantly than law abiding citizens apposed is that the law only works on those who abide by it. Criminals are able to purchase weapons steal them or buy them from the law tracking sources of illegal guns.

    That for of blind trust is why the originators of our country decided we needed a 3 part administration to keep out a watchful eye so nothing bad would happen to the country. Glad it continues to hold back lots of the poorly thought out ideas!

    Too many people choose to ignore warning signs and consistent odd or bad behavior of those around them. I don't agree with the kneejerk reaction of threatening changes to or the elimination of law abiding citizens rights to guns.
