For those who think that perhaps those that advocate gun control will get their little victory, and then go away, I offer this:
Gun Control Australia says stronger laws have reduced the number of mass killings in Australia, but is worried the test to obtain a shooting licence is far too easy.
“In all jurisdictions, that is nowhere near as thorough and demanding as should be,” Gun Control Australia president John Crook said.
“Our only experience in analysing Victorian figures is virtually everyone, that is 99.5 per cent of people who take that test, pass it.
“In other words, it completely lacks integrity.
“It’s the simplest test you could imagine of just a few multiple choice answers.”
Mr Crook argued the test should be made into a course of between 20-40 hours over six months.
Put in tests and training, it’ll then be too easy, because people are passing them.Â They don’t want any legal ownership, but you can’t get there in one fell swoop.
“If I had a magic wand, if was premier for a day, I would have a total prohibition on guns. Total prohibition, including disarming the police force,” he told the Nine Network.
Yeah.Â Go ahead and try that and let me know how it works out for ya.
