Haz, we feel for you, brother! We have plenty of of own "John Howards" here in the US. The hypocrites claim to revere the 2A but their votes always seem to go the wrong way. They always talk about "hunting or sport shooting" but they never touch on self-defense. The one thing that remains constant is their hypocrisy. They can own guns, have access to guns, use guns for recreational purposes, have guns for protection, but they hate and distrust their fellow man and will not allow them to have guns. They are elitist who think "we are the sheep and they are the shepherds" when, in reality, "we are the employers and they are the employed".
If there is anything we can do over here you help you, please don't hesitate to ask.
