    No, not surprised, outraged, offended, askansed.
    The lesson: Australian criminals do not pay attention to gun bans.
    It's all free entertainment any more...

    When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns...pretty simple really.

    But that's impossible in a place where gun ownership has been outlawed! :rolleyes: It's all America's fault!

    No, you have to go back to the type of people that England sent to populate OZ ... Against their will.
    If you recall they were criminals.

    I prefer to think that they were hand selected by the judge.

    Well, after it was known as "New Holland" anyway. The Dutch were there first.

    Hmmmm,... So were we eventually.
    Except the Tories anyway.

    Many of the founders of Australia were also the prison guards, cooks, wardens etc. that decided to stay there.
    South Australia was settled by Britons for the same reasons N. America was.
    Religious and political freedoms.
    It may have started out a strictly a prison colony, but before England released it, there were people of all legal stripes from England in Australia.
