Wengang,

 

I wasn’t going to comment as its not appropriate in the tech group as had nothing to do with tech however……the person is correct, in Australia it is almost impossible to get a pistol (basically security guard only), absolutely no semi-auto/full automatic, basically you can get licenses for .22 rifles/shotguns etc and that’s about it and even then there are restrictions eg have to have club licenses, storage within the range facilities and or be a farmer/primary producer.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Australia

 

Having/keeping a gun at home is almost unheard of in Australia, basically I know 2 people in Australia who have guns…….

 

Everything else about the post was correct though eg no politician would try and ban abortion – it would be political suicide. Public attitudes about homosexuality is so far removed from the USA in that if you talk about someone being a homosexual as a bad thing you would look like an idiot neanderthal. And yes while Julia Gillard (the PM) is an idiot….she is unmarried and an atheist.


Cheers,

Dean

Because it is not true what those claims on the picture. Simple googling will bust some of them. Starting gun laws. 

Australia does allow owning firearms with license. :) simple fact check goes a long way ,works for both democrats and republican 

 

Please let's focus on tech in our tech list? :)
