    The first one...

    Man shot dead in Sydney’s southwest

    A MAN has died after being shot in Sydney’s west.

    Police were called to a unit block on the corner of George and Lachlan streets in Warwick Farm at 5.20pm on Sunday.

    A man was treated at the scene for a gunshot wound before being taken under a police escort to Liverpool Hospital, where he later died.

    And then this...

    Trio on the run after Gold Coast shooting

    THREE men remain on the run after another man was found on the side of a Gold Coast road with a gunshot wound to his leg.

    The 46-year-old man was discovered by police on the side of Helensvale Road in Helensvale on Thursday afternoon with a “significant” wound to his lower right leg

    Isn't it funny how you can pinpoint those two. Try doing that in the United States. I'd take two over what we have in a heartbeat. Shit must be working.

    More gun control is about control of the law abiding populace, not a reduction in violent crime.

    As a member of the NRA and vet with a handful of legal firearms... even I see through that weak statement.

    So you believe that criminals will follow yet more gun control laws, and they won't further, and further restrict the law abiding at all?

    Yet Australia is so much safer than the USA.

    Tough that, 2aguy: that will never change for you despite your dearest, cherished hope.

    No I dont. But I also don't think their intention is to simply attack legal gun owners and that they truly believe it's a solution. You have to come up with a better argument than regurgitating that bullshit. You make it so easy for them to argue against us.

    I own guns because I live in a remote section of the country as protection from wild life. I would gladly turn my guns over if they get regulated because I would rather go unarmed than watch a kid take a round to the face and have democrats pin it on me.

    If you are asking if I am a gun owning veteran, you are correct. If you are asking if I am the guy who shows up to rallies in a baseball helmet and FLC, while never spending a second standing down range of a threat, than no. You are highly mistaken.

    I know the threat of guns and would be willing to exchange my safety for the safety of others.

    So why don't you eat your CNN bullshit.
