Leftists love to point to Australia as an example of how they would like to see gun control implemented here. Give what Bearing Arms found, I see why America’s Cult of Gun Control would approve
When talking about our own current gun debate, I’ve maintained that the real problem with so-called “assault rifles” is that they look scary. It’s the reason they don’t hold up a Mini-14, for example, as a terrifying piece of military hardware despite it chambering the same round as the AR-15. It’s also why someone like Shannon Watts would hold up a bolt-action .22 as an example of a weapon we shouldn’t let 18-year-olds buy.
Well, we have another data point to consider. This time, it’s from Australia, that country anti-gun activists look to for guidance and hold up as a shining example of how guns should be handled.
It seems that despite letting a handful of guns into the country, authorities are now demanding owners turn them in. Why? Because they look like AR-15s.
See it works this way. When you give gun control zealots an inch, well, you know the rest.
