Next time a leftist asks you why we need the Second Amendment, say "Australia" and walk away.

Awwww... the crippled Nazi is so optimistic!

Do you have to walk away because the next question is "what exactly about Australia?"

In the 1990's the NRA used to have hour long infomercials on during the day showing file footage of the Australian government destroying the piles and piles of guns that were turned in after they outlawed most weapons in the country after the massacre. They set it up like a fake news program (Much like Fox News today...) and had anchors interviewing Australians who were saying that they were terrified for their life and how crime was going to destroy the whole country.

It always ended with... "and if you don't want that to happen here... IN AMERICA... send money now. The NRA, we're here to protect you from those goddamn commie libs!" *Eagle tear*

It was funny to me, because it was so goddamned stupid. But, all of the rubes bought it. Hook, Line and Sinker.

My version also works.

Um, hey, Maddy?

Have you ever been to Australia? It's pretty nice. And guess what? You can still own guns there if you really want to. You just may not be able to get your personal favorite gun, but so be it.

this is just another demonstration of how the American right have no understanding or respect for how democracy works.

Its a sovereign nation.  they govern themselves and they deemed guns harmful enough to get rid of them.

It would be great to live in a country where half of its people don't harbor fantasies of killing other people.

What point is he trying to make? Is he upset there aren't mass shootings in Australia? Is Australia overrun by 30-50 feral pigs?

The only reason this Mac and Me star is doing this is because he thinks it resonates with 2nd amendment Qtards (which of course do not apply in Australia) and elevates his presence. It's entirely despicable

Madison simply wants our Aussie brethren to be prepared for EWII - Emu War II. Who knows when those shifty feathered fiends will strike next!

Funny, I feel far safer walking the streets of pretty much any European or Australian city with their evil gun bans than I do in any American (North or South for that matter) with widely available weaponry. I don't think people are more homicidal in USA or Ecuador or Colombia, but they can certainly kill more easily when they do get angry. Seems foolish to me.

This is dipshiattery at its finest.

In Australia we don't have a massive number of guns like in the US, but those we have are in the well-secured storage of fully licensed gun owners who engage in hunting, farming and recreational shooting. And their kids do grow up hunting with guns etc, as it happens. One of my step-kids' best mates was hunting feral deer as a primary-schooler, I recall.

There was a little controversy back in 1996 when the government engaged in a large-scale buy-back of many guns while banning many varieties of gun deemed unnecessarily powerful or too easy to use in a mass-shooting situation. That government was anything but "leftist", by the way. John Howard was the most conservative Prime Minister in my lifetime, and one of the most conservative Australia has ever had since federation.

These days, there is very little politics around the gun issue. Howard-loving conservatives stand strong on one of his greatest achievements, the "left" aren't about to change anything and most of the rest really appreciate living in a country which respects the right to not get shot, which involves not having too many guns on the one hand but having strong requirements for licensing, registration and storage.

The US conservatives never shut up about the right to bear arms, but they don't talk much about the right to not get shot in a high school or at a country music concert or a Batman movie. And they don't get how much the rest of the world, not just Australia, appreciates this right. We're glad we don't have the right to bear arms because that would really fark with licensing gun owners, which basically doesn't happen in the US. Illinois has what appears to be the closest thing to gun licensing and that's woeful while also quite possibly being unconstitutional as it is, so it's not getting better.

Oh, damn. I rather like the idea that you need to be a participating gun club member. A handgun owner in Australia might actually be able to hit what he's aiming at.

You deeply misunderstand what goons like Cawthorn are doing.

This is about distraction, tossing red meat outrage scattershot, etc.

There's no true belief here.  It's not a question of some dummy not understanding how things work.  It's about some criminal not CARING and using Australia as a prop.

So I guess the "respect" part is right.  But its not disrespect of other systems.  Its a wider disrespect for the truth or serious discourse. He's not pissing on Australia specifically because he doesn't respect Australia.  He's pissing on Australia because they're convenient to piss on for his true goals. They're an end to his means.

This is the modern Republican party, the GQP. Their underclass is dumb.  Their overclass ACTS dumb to manipulate the underclass.

With a few exceptions.  Louis Gohmert?  That dude actually is that dumb.

I also feel far safer when interacting with European law enforcement, so there is that. Which is nice.

That's how it used to work back in Europe, as well. And the gun clubs are very aware of the fact that it's their privilege to lose,  too - which means they don't fudge the numbers or issue permits to shady members. A whole lot of people are quite happy to shoot with club weapons, too. Less hassle, less risk of a firearm ending up in the wrong hands.
