    as I understand Australia CONFISCATED and DESTROYED every gun in civilians hands, they started to give guns rights back when crime went up like 60% in a short time.

    How so? I never heard they reversed course at all?

    For sure the lady attacked by the 'roo wouldn't have been eligible to pack a 642 or G26 for SD.

    Not true at all. They do have awful laws but people still own guns there. We have Aussie guns owners posting here @ GT. Also I was in Brisbane on the 132th of May and attended a gun show to what it is like there.

    I didn't realize they had such long months! :rofl: While Australia may be far from the best example, it's amazing how many countries have better gun laws than the US. I've gone boar hunting in Tuscany and always get a kick on how you can walk into the bars with a rifle slung over your shoulder. The better places have a gun-check room with an Etruscan goddess who takes your rifle and gives you a check ticket while you get absolutely hammered on grappa. HH

    Ive shot dead roughly........ 200 Roo's with pistols here in Australia - everything from .45,9mm,.40,357sig,357magnum and .38 special - even .22 pistols from memory. (ive shot wild pigs 100's of wild goats and my fair share of wild dogs aswell)
    Ive shot many more with rifles and shotguns too - no you cant carry here - yes our laws suck, i know that area i wouldnt have hesitated to shoot that Roo if i was out in a remote area i usually have a gun close by.
    I saw this story in the paper the other day, hell even an iron bar would have fended it off - but id prefer my Glock 31 :supergrin:
