    Obama cites Australia’s gun confiscation program as example for US

    Sounds like he is wanting to implement gun control Australian Style. But because unlike Australia we have checks and balances and we are not a socialist state run by a dictator.

    " “A couple of decades ago Australia had a mass shooting similar to Columbine or Newtown, and Australia just said, ‘Well, that’s it. We’re not doing — we’re not seeing that again,’ and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since. I mean, our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no other advanced, developed country on earth that would put up with this,” Obama added. "

    I am not a lawyer, I study the history of gun control laws.

    Violence committed with GUNS as the weapon may be down, but overall violent crime is UP. I believe this song explains my position a little more... lyrically.
