The on-going killing of people by guns, over 88 each day (over 32,000 annually) in the United States, and nothing
being done by Congress to slow this, one might conclude eliminating people, or “useless eaters”, is indeed a
part of the agenda. (See #7) There are those who point out a percentage of those killed
are "suicides", and this may be true, but the bottam line is they are dead and the 'depopulation' agenda is being
furthered through the free access to guns now present in the United States.
Not saying the Australian model would be workable in the United States, but at least it shows what legislators,
with a backbone (or being the whore of the NRA, ALEC, or some other pimp paying for their service), can do to solve
a problem. Australia was experiencing a rash of mass killings by assault-type weapons and they passed the following
policy (taken from Wikipedia):
Firearms in Australia are grouped into Categories determined by the National Firearm Agreement with different
levels of control. The categories are:
- Category B: Centrefire rifles (not semi-automatic), muzzleloading firearms made after 1 January 1901.
Apart from a "Genuine Reason", a "Genuine Need" must be demonstrated, including why a Category A firearm
would not be suitable.
- Category C: Semi-automatic rimfire rifles holding 10 or fewer rounds and pump-action or
semi-automatic shotguns holding 5 or fewer rounds. Category C firearms are strongly restricted: only primary
producers, occupational shooters, collectors and some clay target shooters can own functional Category C
- Category D: Semi-automatic centrefire rifles, pump-action or semi-automatic shotguns holding more
than 5 rounds. Functional Category D firearms are restricted to government agencies and a few occupational
shooters. Collectors may own deactivated Category D firearms.
- Category H: Handguns including air pistols and deactivated handguns. (Albeit both
SA and WA do not require deactivated handguns to be regarded as handguns after the deactivation process has
taken place. This situation was the catalyst in QLD for the deactivation and diversion of thousands of
handguns to the black-market – the loophole shut since 2001) This class is available to target shooters. To
be eligible for a Category H firearm, a target shooter must serve a probationary period of 12 months the
first 6 months using club handguns,then in the remainder of the last 6 month probationary licence, an
application may be made, permit to acquire. A minimum number of matches yearly to retain each category of
handgun and be a financial member of an approved Pistol Club. Source http://www.police.nsw.gov.au/services/firearms
These categories – A,B,C,D and H were those determined by the NFA. The others listed here are determined by the
states that have implement them at their own discretion.
- Target shooters are limited to handguns of .38 or 9mm calibre or less and magazines may hold a maximum of
10 rounds. Participants in certain "approved" pistol competitions may acquire handguns up to .45", currently
Single Action Shooting and Metallic Silhouette. IPSC shooting is approved
for 9mm/.38/.357 sig, handguns that meet the IPSC rules, but larger calibres are not approved for IPSC
handgun shooting contests in Australia. source http://www.ipsc.org.au/ . Category H barrels must be at least 100mm (3.94") long for
revolvers, and 120mm (4.72") for semi-automatic pistols unless the pistols are clearly ISSF target pistols:
magazines are restricted to 10 rounds. Handguns held as part of a collection were exempted from these
Certain Antique firearms can in some states be
legally held without licences. In other states they are subject to the same requirements as modern
All single-shot muzzleloading firearms manufactured before 1 January 1901 are
considered antique firearms. Four states require licences for antique percussion revolvers and cartridge repeating
firearms, but in Queensland and Victoria a person may possess such a firearm without a licence, so long as the
firearm is registered (percussion revolvers require a license in Victoria).
Australia has very tight restrictions on items which are far less controlled in
comparable societies such as New
Zealand. Air pistols, elsewhere unrestricted, are as difficult to
get as centrefire and rimfire handguns, and low-powered airguns are as difficult as cartridge arms to
license. Airsoft guns are banned in all states and non-firing replicas banned in
most. Suppressors (or 'silencers') which are legal
in the UK and New Zealand, are extremely restricted in Australia to a few government bodies.
their plan was put in effect there have been ZERO mass killings and those who desire a gun are abel to have one
providing they meet set criteria.
In the United States there have been 34 mass killings in schools in the most recent 18 months (December, 2013 to
July, 2014). That's more than 2 mass killings in schools every month (and the schools have not been open all of
