Petition: Revise Australian Gun Control Laws
Petition signer's comment:
It is a known fact that in Texas where most citizens carry (concealed) firearms for self defence the rate of crime is one of the lowest. The gun laws pushed through Parliament by PM J. Howard in 1997 were a knee jerk reaction to the Port Arthur massacre without consultation of any shooting groups. The result was disarmament of law abiding, responsible citizens and an increase in weapons trading to criminals through black market trade. We have since seen an increase in gun violence & hm invasions
