" don't vote for Hilary as she will make sure that no-one will defend their home ever again"

I think you seriously underestimate the number of firearms we have here. Unless Hillary is planning to force the cops to do door-to-door search-and-seizures of weapons, we (us gun-toting rednecks, that is) will still have hundreds of millions of guns, even if she starts banning the manufacture and sale of certain of them (AR's, AK's). Not to mention the billions of rounds of ammo we have stored up for the impending zombie apocalypse.

I did find it humorous that the Aussie cops said "Do not confront a person in your house." As a Merican, the idea of that is completely foreign to me and runs counter to the basic instinct of "protect the house". But since Oz is mostly disarmed now, that's probably good advice, since the intruder may actually be armed - when they outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns, right?
