The Real Politics of Gun Control

The only thing that has changed in the past 1200 years concerning the right to bear arms is a change in the quality of men themselves.

Only a fool or a woman would ever surrender their arms to the government. That's all we have left in Western society.

How are the gun laws in OZ? I was under the impression that there's pretty tight restriction in the commonwealth.

Looking at the election candidates filtering through the primaries, I think it's time to buy the rest of my shopping list, within the year. I'm also fortunate enough to live in a state where private individuals can legally sell guns to each other in person, sans paperwork, face to face transfer. After the martial gun-grab of registered owners in the hurricane Katrina aftermath, private sales are a comforting thought.
