The woeful firearms of gun control

Share Canberra's trusted news:

AS ONCE again American gun advocates make their grisly sales pitch for unrestricted firearms no matter the bloodstained cost I thought it would be illustrative to take a look through our favourite guns seized by ACT Policing in the last couple of years.

It’s true, in a society with gun control (albeit one in which sporting shooting seems to have survived) criminals do still have access to guns.

But look at what guns they are!

Then consider that these are very hard to get hold of, and have to be used carefully by their owners because they are very hard to replace.
