Re: An Australian perspective
Not sure why the downvote. Everything said was fact.
At the time of the shooting Tasmania and Queensland had the loosest gun laws in the country mainly due to more farmers.
The then premier of Queensland, Rob Borbidge played a vital role in getting a consensus and passing the legislation, although conceding later that it cost him the Queensland election. Politicians can sometimes act for the good of the country and not their own self interest.
The USA has the chance to change the course of their own history like we did in Australia if their politicians are brave enough which unfortunately does not seem to be the case.
