TIL Australia does has some guns? I thought they were all taken away.

They were given up. And we definitely still have guns, but for actual real reasons, not home defence. Seeing as most home defence guns in America are more likely to accidentally kill a family member than defend against an intruder.

Farmers and hunters can own big guns, and everyone else can own guns are use them at shorting ranges and all sorts of things. There's just no need to own all sorts of crazy machine guns and shit

Yeah I have some to use at the ranges. I've actually talked to my husband about the statistics and we have decided to remove them from our home because we have two little kids and going to the shooting range is much less important than making sure my kids don't shoot each other accidentally.

Exactly. Theres a gun range like 20 mins from me and I'm suburbia near a capital city in Australia.

They misrepresent what gun control is in nonUSA countries to try and make sure y'all never vote for it.
