Australia has one too many mass shootings and they crack down. Since then, the last time I checked they are still an open and free society.

Our problem in America isn't a lack of guns, but a flooded market and ease of access.

Hey, that’s your opinion and I respect it.

I am not looking to get into a debate about gun control.

Holy shit Minn, I grew up with "Safeway" grocery stores. I didn't know they still existed. How old is this cartoon?

Not that it matters, but, we have to fear the big bad government while saying cops lives matter and support the military.

[bold mine]  Just as well.  As far as I can tell, the USian debate over gun control ended after the Sandy Hook butchery.  Once you lot decided that the shooting of TWENTY LITTLE CHILDREN was bearable, any possibility of 'debate' was over forever.

Actually, I'm more worried about the critters where I live. The few neighbors I have out here are decent folk.

True. There is no good reason to ban a tool just because it has been abused. But make sure it's used as a tool, not a toy or an object to further fuel paranoia.

Nope. It is easy enough to get a license as long as you have a good enough reason, aren’t suffering from mental health problems and don’t have convictions for a violent offence.

That's fucked up. Considering the police don't even carry them why are the civilians allowed them? Makes no sense.

But this dangerous "tool" doesn't have a non-dangerous use.

And why don't you tell it like it is and call it a "weapon".

I use them to weed coyotes. They're a useful tool for that. I also have a .50 cal. heavy machine gun, useful for busting engine blocks and rendering vehicles immobile. That's a weapon. You have to know guns to talk intelligently about their uses.
