    You Can't Take Back A Bullet

    I grew up with a lot of drug dealers and bikers where guns were commonplace. I never experienced guns ever fixing or solving any problem, only causing irrevocable damage, death, and worse problems ever escalating in a downward spiral of retaliation. I've seen friends kill...

    I Hate People Who Use Guns

    My friend's little brother was shot by a 15 year old. It was part of an initiation into a gang. He was just short of his 18th birthday by 4 days.

    Agree To Disagree?

    My husband and I have discussed every aspect of gun ownership and have reached an impasse. I feel that owning a gun is against everything I stand for. I avoid conflict, hate violence, and we have a house rabbit for Christsakes, the most innocent prey animal you could ever have as...

    My Mother Was Shot Dead

    I abhor guns as evil, power hungry or mentally imbalanced people use them to kill. While I was on the phone to my mother in July 2002 overseas her ex husband entered her premises and shot her point blank. I could hear her desperately pleading for him to stop. She was hemmed in...

    Two police officers shot to death in retaliation

    for police shootings of African American males. They had nothing to do with the other cases. Then the guy shot himself. And it seems to me at least one of the officers was targeted because he was Asian and an Asian police officer had been startled inside a dark stairwell and...

    Dodging Bullets

    Guns In School

    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 do not belong in the hands of civilians.

    I know this might sound weird coming from a soldier, but I strongly detest guns. I think they are works of art, but their purpose is monstrous. It is bad enough in our hands, let alone in a domestic environment. Civilians are not required to ever have as harsh health checks as...

    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 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...

    I am proud to live in Australia,
