“Bravo for Canadian PM Justin Trudeau!” for banning assault-type weapons in Canada in 2020!
US President Joe Biden, please do something before more innocent Americans are slaughtered! Australia is America’s greatest and most consistent military ally! Yet, only a few years ago, your lax gun laws saw the senseless, Oklahoma back-shooting murder of a young rising Aussie sports star “making it big” in the US of A!
Make no mistake: former US President Barack Obama genuinely wanted to remove (as would I) the wrong sort of guns from the wrong sort of people in US civilian life. However, the pro-gun lobby did not want to give Obama a moral (and political) victory far in excess of what he then deserved (in their eyes) and the situation then warranted. But not now, because the world now sees the average Yank as a helium balloon (never real flowers), stretch limo (never had a “my-first-car” clunker), fast food t’go (never had a home-cooked meal), cyber life existence (never “first-kissed” a real girl or boy), and finally, as a “homeowner” SWAT team military arsenal…addict!, the last item, merely to wipe out the entire family next door if any of them ever parks across homeowner “SWAT Team No. One’s” driveway again!!
President Biden and America should follow the lead of one of Australia’s former prime ministers, John Howard, and totally ban all civilians from owning rifles and shotguns other than bolt action! (And very, very few civilian Australians are licence-permitted to carry easily concealed revolvers, let alone 16-shot magazine semi-auto pistols)! Please, President Biden…look how an evil, Australian nutter in recent years slaughtered 50 Kiwi innocents in New Zealand because of guns laws then nearly as lax as America’s!
To this recreational shooting-loving Aussie, the average civilian American wanting to own “assault” military-type (and large-magazined) weapons and/or “so-easily-concealed” semi-automatic pistols must have more “hang-ups than an Imelda Marcos wardrobe”! because to own such weapons would be akin to the Founding Fathers’ permission for 18th century US citizens to “home-own” entire batteries of 18th century cannons and mortars! Twenty-six innocents’ lives (so many so very tiny!) extinguished at a New England school by “non-civilian” weapons, and now another twelve at a Virginia Beach workplace and in Chicago in 2022 on 4th July Independence Day can neither be excused nor in any way tolerated in the name of “Gun Owners’ Rights”! This is not what the Founding Fathers intended!
US gun owners, your “gun rights” should be protected by only having the right type of people access the right type of guns in civilian life, because today, all patriotic Americans are rightly protected by America’s unique anti-missile missile: the “Patriot”! Inspired by one of your, greatest-ever patriots: the late and great President Ronald Reagan!
