Australian gun regulation worked, but Virginia Citizens Defense League remains unconvinced.

Timely and as revealing as any early morning call from my Republican friend in Milwaukee. Gun bans do work. John Oliver wonders how the ban worked in Australia:
Following the Senate's defeat of the Manchin-Toomey amendment, John Oliver tests the theory that government-mandated gun control doesn't work. 


  1. Except violent crime in Austrailia has risen as much as 49% in some areas since that time. Do your homework!

  2. The joys of statistics: 2+1=50% increase.

  3. Which areas, over what timeframe, and what specific kinds of crime, please?

  4. The vacuous argument about violent crime going really tired. You're point is..? I hear this even from my conservative friend in Milwaukee and he's never been able to answer why that's an argument.

    Deaths are down from mass killing. People aren't killing people. And those states that have seen violent crime rise? Those cities? You would have killing replace violent crime?

    Stop repeating something that doesn't make any sense at all. I know, solve violent crime by shooting people. The culture of firearms is destroying our country.

  5. You still think this is a country? The US Corporation Has been posing as a government since at least 1871. Do your homework! Your site cracks me up. :)

  6. US corporate posing as a government...that's good.

    I'm glad you're entertained by the blog.

  7. See "The Act of 1871." The District of Columbia was incorporated.

    28 USC § 3002

    (15) “United States” means—
    (A) a Federal corporation;
    (B) an agency, department, commission, board, or other entity of the United States; or
    (C) an instrumentality of the United States.

    It's just commerce. It's just business.

    P.S. The culture of firearms is not destroying our "country." A firearm is a tool. That's all. It can be used for destructive purposes as well as defensive purposes. The second amendment is the ONLY balance of power left. Registration and confiscation worked beautifully for Stalin, Mao, Hitler and many more who killed millions of sheeple. And that IS the agenda this time I assure you.

    Uneducated imbeciles who don't read their history books and can't think for themselves are the problem. The mounting debt and extraction of tens of trillions of dollars out of this nation are the problem. An unbacked currency with no intrinsic value is the problem. Instability in capital markets is the problem. Just talking about raising taxes is the problem. By the way, raising taxes does not necessarily result in raising more revenue. Read "The End of Prosperity." Too many ideologues who can't see the bigger picture and connect all the dots are the problem. The Federal Reserve is a private bank. It's not a government agency. It's a private banking cartel. Read "The Creature from Jekyll Island."

    There are only two heads on the eagle... the left wing and the right wing. This false left/right paradigm keeps us all bickering at each other instead of being united and focused on the source of all problems. You can blame Republicans (politicians) but they work for the corporation just as the Democrats do. You can blame Conservatives but liberal bullies would rather initiate force (or use the government to do it) against their God given rights when all they want to do is be left alone to live in peace.

    How many children killed by US predator drones in Pakistan, Yemen, Tunisia, Afghanistan, Syria, etc. have you cried for in the past 4 years? But the lame stream media plays up a story with false facts and half truths and you want to give the actual perpetrators behind each one of these false flag events a monopoly on all violence? GEEZ! Turn off the TV and read!!! Your Ezra Klein Washington Post economic articles are completely farcical and laughable. Too many people, both left and right of center are contained in their own belief system and only see what they want to see. THAT will be the end of this nation.

    But I do commend you on your passion.
