I say we should be allowed guns to defend ourselves and family.
This stuff is just wrong...

Why a gun to defend yourself and your family, i am sure there are more severe means of defense than your suggestion.

The second amendment was written for cow boys, and is upheld by cow boys.
Times change and so must the Constitution.

Doog, as an older, not so physical person anymore, I would like to take up your point about 'why guns'. I don't need to say too much in defense of guns at my age. The reason us 'oldies' are OK with guns is that, we don't want to get anywhere near a 'baddie'. So if we are challenged we caution them that if they come any closer they WILL be shot! We have had a few such cases here where one such case the old couple locked themselves in a room, (bedroom I think) and the baddie was bashing down the door to get to them. The old man yelled at him to stop and go away or he would shoot, more than once. He didn't and the old man did. The garbage died. So many people celebrated, until the arseholes decided to arrest him for murder. Well the public came out and whether the police had decided already or not, the charges were downgraded to caution or similar for twelve months. So Doog, I am all for guns. What I am not for is a legal system with blinkers and bias. When I hear of old ladies getting bashed and RAPED WTF! I want that bastard strung up by the neck and let victims of crime do WHATEVER they want to him, with one proviso, that they don't stop till he is dead. So leave the guns and lets focus on the problem people.

Citizens and others in Australia have the legal right to defend themselves against unlawful attack.

Is Mise, you are right, up to a point. Yes we do have the right to defend ourselves but, and here's the kicker. it must be 'like for like'. This law only highlights the absolute stupidity and ignorance of those elected to make decisions on our behalf. What this means is if someone attacks you with a baseball bat you MUST protect yourself with the same kind of weapon. What idiots! They need to be attacked with a baseball bat, then we'll see how keen they'l be to enforce that law. What absolute morons. I say NO, I'm not going to let this scum anywhere near me because he's likely to kill me. So I strongly promote the use of anything that gives me a distance advantage over the scum. And if he dies in the process, even better. A perfect result. The public don't have to feed and look after him and another pieces of excrement has been removed. Just think of all the old folk who will not be attacked in the future. We can begin to sleep at night once again.
