Well, there is an obvious solution to this challenge - go after the producers and retailers of guns and ammunition. Now bear with me for a second, it's not what you think it is.
This side of the water, several industries (including travel) are bound by law to have a trustfund to cover for industrial failures. One recent example is Monarch, where the UK ATOL scheme covered much of the repatriation cost and reimbursement for cancelled holidays. That scheme is paid for by the travel industry, as a percentage of their turnover.
Why not do the same with manufacturers and sellers of guns and ammunition?
Because, as any gun nut will tell you:
guns don't kill people, people kill people.
Well since liberals like yourself seem to think taking guns away will solve all problems lets look at the land down under.
Australian Gun Law Update
Here's a thought to warm some of your hearts....
From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
Hi Yanks, I thought you all would like to see the real
figures from Down Under.
It has now been 12 months since gun owners in Australia were forced by a new law to
surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own
government, a program costing Australia taxpayers
more than $500 million dollars.
The first year results are now in:
Australia-wide, homicides are up 6.2 percent,
Australia-wide, assaults are up 9.6 percent;
Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44 percent)!
In the state of Victoria.....
lone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent.(Note that
while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not
and criminals still possess their guns!)
While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins andassaults of the elderly, while the resident is at home.
Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in 'successfully ridding Australian society of guns....' You won't see this on the American evening news or hear your governor or members of the State Assembly disseminating this information.
The Australian experience speaks for itself. Guns in the
hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.
Take note Americans, before it's too late!
Will you be one of the sheep to turn yours in?
WHY? You will need it.
But there has been no mass shootings so there is that..
