    Open carry - Australia

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-09-0...senate/4945080

    I'm all for open carry, but I think we should be allowed to own firearms for self-defense in our homes first.

    Personally, I don't think it will ever happen. The general public are too trusting in the police's ability to protect them. In a country where the majority of police officers cannot take their firearms home; civilian carry is too far-fetched.

    Don't get me wrong, the police do a great job, but they can't be everywhere. What's that saying? "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away."

    In most states you can't even carry pepper spray.
