I Hate Guns

    Close Encounters

    I've had way too many close encounters with guns -even here in Australia, where we have pretty stringent gun laws. My first experience at the wrong end of a gun was as a junior reporter on a country newspaper. I was sent to a tumbledown farmhouse in the bush to interview a...

    Guns Take The Fun Out

    Guns take all the fun out of killing! You don't get to enjoy the fear in the eyes and hear that last gasp for life escaping your victim's lungs as they slowly die. Knifing is so much more intimate. There is no chance for the victim to escape a bullet fired from a kilometer...

    Guns Are Tools . . .

    nothing more, nothing less.  Hating guns is like hating cars, only more people are killed every day by cars than by guns.  Guns can be used to do good or do evil.  Hate the people that use guns wrongly.

    Guns In School

    Everytime someone smacks a book on the ground, it sounds like the gunshot I heard a few years ago when someone killed someone at my school during the school day. It sounded like someone getting slapped really loud or books dropping on the ground. Everytime I hear it, I jump. I...

    I am proud to live in Australia,

    mainly because it is a country where guns are not legalised for all. I think America's gun laws are heavily outdated, and compromise the safety of the people they supposedly endeavour to 'protect'. I've heard it all, with numerous people saying its the person behind the gun, not...

    Americans love their weapons.

    Hate???

    I'm not sure what is wrong with people, but guns are inanimate objects. Why the hate?I've have used a gun in a defensive situation, so I can't get on board with those who want to ban them. Sorry.

    You Can't Take Back A Bullet
