nager BS: Gun control in OZ (35) RE: BS: Gun control in OZ 09 Feb 05

Most people here don't give a toss about having the `right' to own a gun.
Ninety per cent of people I know wouldn't want one.
I don't know what statistics (above) are correct but I do know that whenever they are compiled by a government bureau there are always people falling over themselves to put their spin or interpretation on them.
As Freda correctly said much earlier in this thread, in Australia the major contributing factor to crime is drug use.
The major cause of death and injury here is many people's total misuse of the motor vehicle.
For criminal it is to drive dangerously fast, with drugs and alcohol in the blood stream and cause horrific accidents involving innocent people.
The amount of deaths and injury caused by crimes associated with guns, is way down the list.
