AUSSIE GUN LAWS ARE TOUGH
What are you views on gun control – it’s obviously a big issue in the US?
It is tough enough here in Australia. Full stop. See for yourself: before even applying for the handgun licence and buying an air pistol I must be a member of the pistol club for six months, attend a safety course and undertake a police check. Then, I have to wait for six to eight months until the police issue a licence – although officially it should take 21 working days – and another 30 days to get a permit to acquire a gun. Add to that the taking of fingerprints when I applied for the first licence in Victoria in 2003. I’m sure that law- abiding members of gun clubs will never turn guns on another human being because safety rules are imprinted into our brains, and they say that a pistol must be pointed to the paper target only.
